Chicago-area house featured in 'Home Alone' movies sold

CHICAGO (Reuters) - The stately red brick house featured in the 1990 comedy film "Home Alone" has sold for nearly $1.6 million, a person involved in the transaction said on Saturday.

The 14-room, Georgian-style house, located in the northern Chicago suburb of Winnetka, Illinois, was originally priced at $2.4 million when it was first put up for sale 10 months ago. It sold earlier this week for $1.59 million.

"Home Alone" told the story of boy, played by Macaulay Culkin, who is accidentally left behind when his family goes on a Christmas holiday and has to fight off bungling burglars, played by Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern.
