The house made famous in the 1990 smash hit Home Alone has been sold for nearly $1 million less than the asking price after being on the market for a year.

Nestled in the Chicago suburb of Winnetka, Illinois, the 4,243 square-foot home was listed last May with a $2.4 million price tag, but according to the Chicago Sun-Times, it sold on Thursday for just $1.585 million.

The four-bedroom, five-bathroom piece of cinematic history was bought by John and Cynthia Abednshien in 1988 for $875,000 but the new owners have not been named.

And although it's instantly recognizable, made famous by the hit Macaulay Culkin flick, realtor Marissa Hopkins said, "Very few homes have a leading role in a movie, in a sense becoming an additional character."

Home Alone made more than $476 million worldwide and spawned two sequels, cementing Culkin as the premiere child star of the 90s.
