Want to build your own "Home Alone" house?

The "Home Alone" house captured the hearts of many movie-lovers. And residential designer Brandon Smith of Southgate Designs, LLC even offers a pre-design of an modernized version of the "Home Alone" house.

Collectors of movie memorabilia may be interested in knowing that a couple homes with starring roles in famous movies are up for sale. These finds may cost you between one and two million though.

The Home Alone House - You remember the one - A big stately red brick Georgian that Kevin McAllister tirelessly tries to rid of pesky house burglars after finding himself left home alone while his family vacationed in Paris for Christmas. The late John Hughes, director of Home Alone, lived much of his life in Chicago's North Shore where this home can be found just a couple blocks from Lake Michigan. His films often used homes, buildings, and local references from the north shore area which was influential in his film making.

  • Located at 671 Lincoln St., Winnetka, IL
  • 4,243 square feet

Glass House in Ferris Bueller's Day Off - The famous Ferrari scene in the steel and glass garage overlooking the wooded ravine came within the last few minutes of the 1986 John Hughes movie, Ferris Bueller's Day Off. After taking his father's beloved 1961 Ferrari for a day's adventure with Ferris, Cameron, the best friend of Ferris, returns it home safe to the glass garage and attempts to set the mileage back. As Cameron has a meltdown, the two boys watch helplessly as the Ferrari crashes through the glass. Like the Home Alone house, this home is also located in the north shore suburbs of Chicago.

House Details:

  • Originally listed for $2.3 million in 2009 and lowered to $1.65 million in 1/2011
  • Temporarily taken off the market 7/2011 for renovations (expected to be back on market 8/2011)
  • Located at 370 Beech St., Highland Park, IL
  • 5,300 square feet
  • Fictional home of Cameron Frye in the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off starring Matthew Broderick as Ferris.

      Thank you happyboomernurse. I think the "famous" past along with the fact that it needs updating, is making the Ferris Bueller house a tough sell. It's undergoing some renovations now, so will it will be interesting to see what happens when it returns to market this month.

      If you didn't already, click on the Coldwell Banker link under the photo and you can see 16 pics of the house. It's real pretty with dark hardwood floors, and very soothing light colors on the walls with white moldings. Thanks for commenting.
