Price Cut For The Home Alone House

The Winnetka mansion where the 1990 movie "Home Alone" was filmed has undergone a second price cut, to $1.95 million.

It's the latest price drop for the three-story brick mansion, whose owners, John and Cynthia Abendshien, allowed filmmakers to use the house in the popular movie and its first sequel. The Abendshiens listed it in May for $2.4 million and reduced their asking price to $2.18 million in June.

The owners, John and Cynthia Abendshien, had only lived for a year and a half in the house when Chris Columbus, the film's director, came knocking at their door.

"'Are you ready yet?'" the couple recalls Columbus asking. Prior to moving to the property, the Abendshiens were approached to have their previous home appear in "Uncle Buck," another film written by John Hughes and starring Macaulay Culkin.

Located in the well-heeled Chicago suburb of Winnetka, Ill., the 4,250 square foot, the three-story home looks just as picturesque today as it did for the 1990 theatrical release of the film.

Maybe I'll go ask for a raise tomorrow.


  1. The things I could do with this place for Halloween. I remember watching Home Alone and missing much of the story because I was looking at the house decorations! Have you seen this site that shows the inside of the house before the movie people staged it!

  2. LOL art bliss read my mind. I NEVER looks at a house without thinking how it would look decorated for Halloween, if the yard is good for a haunt, and where could I throw a party.

  3. You would have a blast decorating this house!
