Home Alone house sells for 1.585 million USD

The suburban Chicago house defended from attackers by Macaulay Culkin in the 1990 film Home Alone has been sold to an unnamed buyer for $1.585 million.

Hitting the market eleven months ago for the first time in 20 years, the colonial style 1920's mansion, perched a short distance from the scenic Lake Michigan coast, had struggled to sell and was dramatically reduced from its original asking price of $2.4 million. The previous owners of the house bought it for $875,000 in 1988.

Within its 4,250 square foot, three storey footprint, there is a four-room master suite, three additional bedrooms a patio and screened-in porch, a large garden, enormous hallway, plenty of entertaining space and enough nooks and crannies to hide from burglars. Booby traps not included.

Listing agent Marissa Hopkins said: 'Very few homes have a leading role in a movie, in a sense becoming an additional character.'
