My day started with a visit to one of the most iconic homes in America — the Home Alone house.
The home recently came on the market at a price of $2.4 million. It’s in one of the North Shore’s most attractive locations, a block from a lively strip of shops and restaurants, two blocks from the Metra station and Lake Michigan.
