This $5.2 Million Illinois Mansion Starred in ‘Home Alone’

A little over 12 years after it last sold to its current owners Tim and Trisha Johnson for nearly $1.6 million, a recently revamped home in an affluent Chicago suburb nestled along Lake Michigan’s North Shore has once again popped up for sale. But this time you’ll need a bit more cash to pick up the keys to the lavish Georgian-style spread, which is now listed for a speck under $5.2 million.

Tucked away behind a wrought-iron gate amid a tree-lined street in East Winnetka, the mansion was built in 1921 but underwent an extensive renovation and expansion in 2018. And if you’re thinking the place looks a tad familiar, it might be due to its starring role in Home Alone, the film that became a big hit way back in 1990 and has since morphed into a classic. On camera, the upscale estate portrayed the home of 8-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin), who was accidentally left behind by his family while they traveled to Paris for the holidays and had to fend off two bumbling burglars known as the Wet Bandits.

Among the many main-level highlights is a grand entry foyer that flows to a formal dining room on one side and a fireside living room on the other. From there, a family room rests beneath a coffered ceiling and has French doors spilling out to a screened porch warmed by a wood-burning fireplace, and an adjacent gourmet kitchen is outfitted with dual islands, top-tier Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, a walk-in pantry, and an accompanying breakfast nook with a built-in banquette.
