'Home Alone' home priced at $2.4M

CHICAGO, May 5 (UPI) -- The 14-room Illinois mansion featured in the 1990 Macaulay Culkin comedy "Home Alone" is being sold for $2.4 million, the Chicago Tribune reported Thursday.

John and Cynthia Abendshien bought the house in 1988 for $875,000. They told the newspaper they decided to sell it because their children are grown and they don't need as much space.

"The $2.4 million isn't just because of its cinematic history," the Tribune quoted the home's listing agent, Marissa Hopkins of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, as saying. "It really is a residential masterpiece."

The 4,250 square-foot, red-brick house in Winnetka boasts four bedrooms, 3 baths and a large screened-in porch.

In "Home Alone," Culkin plays a boy whose harried family inadvertently leaves for vacation without him. During his time on his own, he defends his home from would be burglars played by Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern.
