Home Alone House

I have forever been a fan of the move Home Alone. Of course, over the holiday it was on several times and every time I watch it, I cannot help but to drool over the Illinois house. According to Wikipedia, it is located in 671 Lincoln Avenue in Winnetka, Illinois. Winnetka is a suburb of Chicago around 19 miles north of the city. Along with the Father of the Bride house, this $2.2 house is a favorite. It is classic, and even for the movie being almost 20 years old, the house still appeals to me. I found this great website that shows tons of different pictures of scenes from the movie and scenes that are taken in the actual house, click here to check it out!I absolutely love the many windows, especially the very top two sticking out from the roof. The grounds are kept so lovely too, making this house have even more curb appeal.I love the printed wallpaper. Most of the times, I think it looks very tacky, and in this case, it does give off the 90's vibe, but I'm ok with that.The green color used on many of the upstairs walls almost reminds me of the Greenbrier resort in West Virginia. Nothing in the house it too matchy and there are many vibrant colors, but they all seem to mix perfectly. Do you absolutely love this house as much as I do? Have a wonderful day!
Yours,
sCe

I grew up about 4-5 blocks from there. My parents live just over the bridge from this house.

Too funny, I watched Home Alone the other night and looked up the house too! I knew it was on the North Shore but didn't know exactly where. Neat to see!

This house, the one from Father of the Bride, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and Wedding Crashers are some of my favorite houses!
Oh, if only I could afford such beautiful houses as those in the movies!

I always loved this house too! A friend of mine grew up a block away so I got to see it in person when I visited her. It's actually smaller than it looks in pictures and on screen. The 'Father of the Bride' house is another fav as well!
