(From the AP) The 14-room brick house defended from intruders by a young Macaulay
Culkin (above) in the 1990 movie "Home Alone" is up for sale in suburban Chicago for $2.4 million. Owners John and Cynthia Abendshien bought the red-brick Gregorian in 1988 for $875,000.They tell the Chicago Tribune that they know it’s not the best time
to put a high-end home on the market, but that they hope the home’s notoriety will
help. The 4,250-square foot house sits on a half-acre lot in suburban Winnetka,
about 20 miles north of Chicago. There are four bedrooms and it features the
staircase (shown below) that Culkin sledded down in the John Hughes movie.
