Own the "Home Alone" House!

Hold the phone! Guess what?! The Home Alone house has been put up for sale! Yep, it’s true. If you fell in love with this home when you saw the movie, for $1.4 million ($1,392,000 to be exact) you can own the actual home where the movie was filmed.

This Zillow article HERE says the home is listed for 2.4 million,

I know, let’s all pool our money together and buy it. 😉 If just 52 of us each pitch in $26,769.23, we can buy “our” house and we’ll each get to stay there for 1 week each year. We’ll have to pull straws to see who gets it for Christmas week. 😉

We’re going to need to do a little renovating because you know we’re going to want it to look just like it did in the movie. Check out these pics from Zillow. It looks quite different now.

Here’s a current picture of this stately Georgian home. Beautiful isn’t it?

Here’s a direct comparison of the living room in the movie and how the home looks today. I would never have recognized it…very different.

Remember that infamous scene in the movie where Kevin catapults himself down these stairs on a sled!

Here’s how it looks in the real estate listing. The listing says the basement is finished, it definitely wasn’t in the movie. Guess the current homeowners did that over these many years. It appears they had only been living there for about 2 years when the movie was made.

I’ll bet this pic from the real estate listing is one from the movie.

Lovely home!

To see a detailed tour of the home as it was in the movie, check out this Home Alone movie post HERE.

Thanks, Michele, Karen and Joy for your e-mails and comments alerting me to the listing!

    Hi Susan,
    What a fun post! I've always loved that house and the movie, Home Alone, is one of my favourites! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend.

    Blessings,

    Love the wallpaper and the staircase gallery wall in the movie. Surprising how current both ideas are considering how long ago it was filmed. Thanks for sharing.

    -grin- Oh what a fun dream! Sharing the costs, and the place.

    And even if we all can't be there for Christmas, it would be decorated "for Christmas time," all year long! Just play holiday music and make-believe! 🙂 Even on the 4th of July!

    I can do it!

    :-)))))))

    Gentle hugs,
    ~♥~

    Let me know when to send my share of the money.

  8. Oh this is my favorite house of all time! I honestly like the way it was decorated in the movie the best. It was such a warm and cozy atmosphere then. The new decor is just too cold and impersonal. I am such an advocate for color in a home and that really holds true in this house. Those gray walls would have to go!

  9. Hillcrest Acres says:

    Count me in!!! I love this home and the neighborhood it is in. I could spend hours wandering around looking at all the beautiful homes.

  10. suburban prep says:

    I grew up down the street from this house. It is a nice house in a nice town. My parents live right by it and my sister and her family live down the street from it too.
    It is being advertised as for sell for 2.4 million. Which might sound like a lot (I know it is to me) but the houses in Winnetka are all about the same price.
    (I live about 20 minutes away from there now.)

  11. Melissa Miller says:

    I saw that yesterday and think it's so neat. I love that house!

  12. Love it!! Let me see, if I save $50per week, I could be in by 11 years!! Save me some egg nog and install a ramp!! 🙂

  13. Hi Susan,
    Thanks for doing this post. I *LOVE* that house. If I had the $ I would snatch it up in a heartbeat. I adore that movie and watch it several times a year. Thanks for the pictures…fun, fun!

    Happy Mother's Day, too! XO ~Liz

  14. What a beautiful house! I love this movie and one of the reasons is this beautiful house.

  15. Jeanette says:

    That has to be one of my favorite movies! What a beautiful home. I love the idea of us all sharing however the money may be a problem !! Ha ha Still nice to dream 🙂 Happy Mother's Day

  16. AshTreeCottage says:

    I would love to go back to Winnetka and buy that house. I grew up in that neighborhood and miss it. Sometimes when I get homesick I watch Home Alone and Ferris Buehler's Day Off because they filmed in so many spots I remember so fondly. Ah, but I live in Idaho now ~ so far away. Thanks for the post!

    Love,
    Susan and Bentley
    xxoo

    So cool! But if this home is in Georgia, I guess I didn't realize they can get that much snow there….unless that is all made up snow for the movie! WOW

  18. Caroline says:

    One of my all time favorite Christmas movies…that house was beautiful.

  19. mgster says:

    I have to watch Home Alone every Christmas season. You know, as much a I know the decor from the movie is a bit dated I still love it. Actually, the way the interior looks today looks so blah to me. There's just something about that red & green that looks so "homey" to me. Beautiful home…some lucky person will have a treasure!

    I'm very happy to find your blog! I love this house style!
