The McCallister House from the Movie "Home Alone": In the suburbs of Chicago, exists this beautiful 4,250-square-foot Georgian style home that was made famous by the 1990 film "Home Alone" directed by Chris Columbus and written by John Hughes. The home was bought in 1988 for $875,000 and then listed over 20 years later in 2011 with a $2.4 million asking price. The property eventually sold in 2012 for $1.6 million. Fun fact for Home Alone fans - Old Man Marley's house, next door to the McCallister's, was listed for sale in 2014 for an asking price of $3 million.
