If you’ve ever wondered, “Where Is the House from Home Alone?” It’s at 671 Lincoln Ave in Winnetka, IL.
Visiting an iconic home once featured in a popular Christmas movie known and loved by millions is as good a holiday tradition as any in northeast Illinois.
The Home Alone house was constructed in 1920.
It was chosen for the 1990 hit film because of its timeless appearance and size. It is located in the north suburbs of Chicago.
It’s the kind of house where a child wouldn’t mind being left alone…
… and it’s also the kind of place where bandits could have a lot of childish fun and mischief.
The house is 4,200 square feet and sits on a half-acre lot.
The house has five bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and a west wing master suite with four rooms of its own. It is one of many truly stately and historic Illinois homes.
This home has been updated from its original appearance in the film and now has a plethora of modern amenities.
Despite this, and despite the fact that the movie was shot here, one of many in Illinois, people still refer to it as the Home Alone Chicago house, or simply the Home Alone house.
Originally valued at more than $2 million, the price of this Home Alone mansion today is likely to be closer to $1.5 million.
If you’re from Chicago or the surrounding area, one of the many questions visitors have is whether you’ve ever visited here!
Have you ever been left “home alone” as a small child?
Ha ha! Of course, the house is visited year after year by a regular cast of characters who want to see the house from their favorite classic Christmas movie – and recreate that famous Macaulay Culkin look!
