There’s something about movie houses that we love. Especially the one from our fave festive films, all decked out with enough lights to rival Martha May Whovier.
That dreamy New York apartment in Elf! The cute cottage from The Holiday which is actually up for sale, sadly without a Jude Law! Sob.
But if there’s one house that we wanted to live in as a child, it’s Kevin McAllister’s mansion home with about 392 rooms and a corker of an entrance hall. While Home Alone just missed out on the top spot for best Christmas film of all time, it undoubtedly features one of the best Christmas movie houses we’ve ever seen.
The fact that his family could not only afford such a gigantic house and an epic holiday has left fans questioning what Kevin’s parents actually do to afford their luxury lifestyle, and now we can finally put a price tag on the Chicago family home – but the property value may surprise you.
Ready for it?
An estate agent told MailOnline: ‘Although it is not currently on the market, the cost is estimated at £1,571,521.’
Kevin’s mega home was worth £1,562,148 in 1990 according eMoov – meaning its value has increased by about £9,000 in 28 years.
When you’d easily pay the same for a two-bed flat in central London, it almost sounds like a bargain. Especially considering that in Love Actually, Natalie’s little terraced house in the ‘dodgy end of Wandsworth’ is worth over a million pounds IRL. Sigh.
