Look Inside: Famous ‘Home Alone’ house listed for $5.25 million

The famous brick house from the beloved Christmas movie “Home Alone” is officially up for sale. It’s located in Winnetka, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. The current owners purchased it in 2012 for $1.585 million, but now it’s listed at $5.25 million. Fans of the movie will instantly recognize the iconic redbrick exterior, and although some changes have been made to the interior, many original features remain.

The house is being sold by Coldwell Banker Realty’s Dawn McKenna Group, and it now boasts a stunning new family room with high ceilings and beautiful French doors that open to the backyard.

The owners, Tim and Trisha Johnson, spoke to The Wall Street Journal, and Trisha recalled that when the couple began looking for a home, she told her husband that she’d like to have something similar in style to the “Home Alone” house.

She explained that when they purchased the property 12 years ago, some changes had already been made, and while they did a major renovation in 2018, she made it a point to leave the front door and central staircase the same as it was featured in the movie.

The Johnson’s also did a complete makeover of the kitchen, opening it up through to the living room.
