Home Alone No More!

Well, looks like the McCallister family is finally moving out!  Ok, this might not be the actual owners, but this Winnetka, IL home was forever made famous by its depiction in 1990′s Home Alone.  As any Kevin McCallister fan knows, a lot of sh*t went down in this house, so owning this home is truly owning a piece of movie history.

The late, great producer/director John Hughes set many films in his hometown of Chicago, including Home Alone, Ferris Buellers’ Day Off, Pretty In Pink and The Breakfast Club. As a lifelong Chicago resident myself, I might be a little biased but I must say that Chicago is one of the best places to shoot a film, especially when architecture is involved.  Whenever anyone mentioned “the Ferris Bueller House,” you know exactly what they are referring to, right?  Cameron’s sterile, mausoleum-like glass box of a home.  And now for $2.4 million, you can be the proud owner of the “Home Alone House.”  While the home doesn’t come complete with overgrowing green and red Christmas decorations and a house full of frazzled relatives, it does boast 4 en suite bedrooms, a screened-in porch, and a coveted east Winnetka address.  If you moved in, I’d be happy to redecorate for you and throw a little housewarming party!

Marsha,
Ha! I just tweeted about spotting many “Design Don’ts” in the original pics :)
Thank you for your vote of confidence that all could be remedied!
