(CBS) The red brick house that young Kevin McCallister defended from nefarious burglars in the classic film "Home Alone" is up for sale.

The Georgian home in Winnetka, Ill., is on the market for $2.4 million.

"The $2.4 million isn't just because of its cinematic history," the home's listing agent, Marissa Hopkins, of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, told the Chicago Tribune. "It really is a residential masterpiece."

The 4,250-square-foot home, built in the 1920s, boasts 14 rooms (including the notorious attic bedroom), a screened-in porch and the staircase Kevin sleds down after he's accidently left behind by his parents at Christmas.

Homeowners John and Cynthia Abendshien told the Tribute they're aware that it might not be the best time to put an expensive house on the market, but the empty-nesters decided they couldn't wait any longer. They said the hope the house's features and its fame  will help snare a buyer.
