CHICAGO, March 9 (UPI) -- The 14-room suburban Chicago house in which the big-screen comedy "Home Alone" was shot has been sold for nearly $1.6 million after 10 months on the market.

The red-brick house in Winnetka, which was put up for sale last May by owners John and Cynthia Abendshien for $2.4 million, sold Thursday to an unidentified buyer for $1.585 million, the Chicago Tribune said.

The house was prominently featured in writer-director John Hughes' 1990 movie "Home Alone," which starred Macaulay Culkin as a little boy whose parents accidentally depart for vacation without him, leaving him to defend the home from burglars.
