'Home Alone' House for Sale: Do You Want It?

The Associated Press reports that the house used in the hit 1990 film "Home Alone," located in a Chicago suburb, is being sold for $2.4 million.

The 4,250-square foot house sits on a half-acre lot in suburban Winnetka, about 20 miles north of Chicago. There are four bedrooms and it features the staircase that Culkin sledded down in the 1990 movie written by John Hughes.

The house is huge, but unfortunately it does not come pre-equipped with any booby traps, so you'll have to install those yourself for all those scenes you'd be crazy not to re-enact.

The realtors have so far refused to offer an open house. Probably a smart move.

    I'd take it off your hands, but I wouldn't buy it!
    It looks like a lovely house but I'm sure I could get something better for that money if I had it!

    The movie was okay, but I was never a major fan. Also, I would have no desire to live in Chicago in the winter. I prefer California.

    Location, location, location. Never had the desire to live anywhere close to Chicago. Beautiful house though, but too big.

    Buy it and relocate it to the hills of TN.....Or just copy the building plans and get it at a tenth of what they are asking for it.

    Hmm...Tennessee is very nice, but I'm a true blue Oregonian, and that kind of move would reek structural havoc on any house. I guess I could look into hiring an architect, but building cost are so high right now. Being the practical person I am, I think I'll just stay put. But thanks for the creative thought process.

    Well I'm a jack of many trades, I could build and design the house with simple measurements, but it would end up getting laid out different, the heating and cooling of that place are SO inefficient, it has FOUR Chiller units.....FOUR, my old middle school didn't even have that many.

    I can tell you've really thought this one over. Perhaps you should build the house for yourself in Tennessee? But my roots are here in Oregon. build house tennessee roots oregon roses oregon mt hood

    I like lots of LAND and room to run, not lots of house and more reason to stay inside. Besides who wants to live in the Sh!thole that Obama is from and will probably retire to?
