For Sale: Childhood Dream House

In order to celebrate Mother's Day, I decided to show case the house of one of the worst mother's of all time (although she totally redeems herself by enduring countless hours of polka music on route to seeing her son). For the cool price of 2.4 million dollars, you can own The McCallister's house and live the dream of every child from the 80s and early 90s Wet Bandits not included.

John and Cynthia Abendshien are selling their red-brick, 4,250-sq.-ft. Georgian house for $2.4 million. The Abendshiens purchased the property, located in Winnetka, 20 miles outside of Chicago for $875,000 in 1988, two years before director Chris Columbus' Home Alone made it a Chicago tourist attraction. The house has four bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, a large screened-in porch and an outdoor greenhouse.
