Iconic ‘Home Alone’ House Hits the Market for $5.25 Million — See Inside!

Dawn McKenna of Coldwell Banker Realty tells PEOPLE, “It’s iconic, loaded with modern amenities, and in one of the best neighborhoods in the country.”

Christmas can be celebrated early for fans of Home Alone!

The cherished 1990 movie’s five-bedroom, six-bathroom mansion is listed for $5.25 million.

The iconic holiday film, which followed 8-year-old Kevin McCallister when he was inadvertently left home alone when his family went on Christmas vacation, was centered on the Winnetka, Illinois residence.

Coldwell Banker Realty’s Kathryn Moor and Dawn McKenna are the owners of the listing.

Along with a fully functional gym, a cutting-edge movie theater, an indoor sports court, and a three-car attached heated garage, McKenna tells PEOPLE that the property is a “rare legend that lives up to its hype in every way.”

“This house has everything. It’s located in one of the greatest neighborhoods in the nation, has a ton of contemporary conveniences, and is iconic,” she claims.

The 9,126-square-foot, tree-lined property, which was first constructed in 1921, is hidden behind a wrought-iron gate and features a spacious floor layout.


The foyer, entry staircase, formal living and dining rooms, and entry staircase of the house were refurbished in 2018, but its form and structure have not changed significantly. French doors that lead to the backyard and a family room with tall ceilings are two of the more recent improvements.

Modern kitchen amenities include a built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator and an 8-burner Wolf range. A second family room, a large patio area with a view of the backyard, and a screened-in porch with a wood-burning fireplace are all located next to the kitchen. Additionally, a mudroom and laundry facilities on the upstairs and basement are available to future occupants.

The second level features three family areas as well as the main suite, which includes a walk-in closet, a gas fireplace, and a marble spa bath with a beautiful freestanding soaking tub, separate shower, and twin vanities.

Converted from the former attic, the third level now houses a junior primary suite and a complete ensuite bathroom with a soaking tub.

“This magical family home truly transcends its architectural pedigree, from the promise of movie nights and game days to holiday gatherings surrounded by loved ones.” The description continues, “It’s an opportunity to own a piece of cinematic history and make enduring memories within its iconic walls.”

Mansion Global states that Tim and Trisha Johnson were the former owners of the historic home. They paid $1.585 million for it in 2012 and put it up for sale on Friday, May 24.

Speaking to the newspaper about some of their most treasured moments, Trisha said, “There are moments when we hear Kevin scream.” Seeing folks get so delighted just to visit my house is a lot of pleasure.
