The house made famous by the holiday blockbuster "Home Alone" has finally sold for $1.585 million, after almost a year on the market.
The home, located in the Chicago North Shore suburb of Winnetka, was initially listed in May of last year for $2.4 million. (It most recently had been listed for $1.95 million in October.) It has 14 rooms -- some of which were featured in the 1990 film, from the attic bedroom, to the kitchen, to the staircase where Harry loses a tooth -- and sits on a half-acre lot, just blocks away from magnificent Lake Michigan.
A lot of the original decor seen in the movie -- the patterned wallpapers, the festive red and green decor and antique furnishings -- has since been updated. Now, clean grey walls and sleek, modern furniture adorn the 4,250-square-foot home, and though it no longer feels like the "warm and cozy Christmas house" that you see in the movie, it's still a genuine looker.
Coldwell Banker's Marissa Hopkins says that selling the unique home was a "privilege," and was happy to learn that the home "touched so many fans and families."
The home's owners, empty-nesters John and Cynthia Abendshien, apparently were ready to downsize because they just "didn't need that much space."
