The house famously used when Kevin McCallister was left Home Alone at Christmas is on sale.

The five-bed, six-bathroom mansion in Winnetka, Illinois has been put on the market for a staggering $5.25m (£4.1m).

It is the first time since 2012 that the property has been put on the market, according to American estate agents, Zillow.

Since the release of the 1990 classic film directed by Chris Columbus, the house has gone under extreme renovation.

Posting a walkthrough of the interiors, estate agents The Dawn Mckenna Group, said the current owners have doubled the living space with the addition of a large conservatory and built a state-of-the-art basketball court.

The house, described by the company as "one of the most famous houses in the world", also features two living rooms, a large kitchen, a three-car garage and the "unforgettable staircase" which a 10-year-old Macaulay Culkin rode down on a sledge.

Previously, Home Alone fans were given the chance to stay at the house in 2021, when Airbnb listed the property for an exclusive one-night-only stay.

Similar properties that have been featured in films or on television have also reached eye-watering prices when put up for sale.

In February this year, the west London home of music legend Freddie Mercury went up for sale for offers in excess of £30m.

While the house from the beloved horror film Halloween went on the market for $1.8m (£1.4m) in 2021 and in 2020 the famous lock-keepers cottages home where the Channel 4 show Big Breakfast was based had an asking price of £5.75m.
