You’d Swear This House in Saginaw is the One From ‘Home Alone’
Talk about a doppelganger. You'd swear this home recently listed for sale in Saginaw belongs to the McCallister family from 'Home Alone.'
At first glance, anyway.
The Timing is Just a Little Bit Suspect
Wait a second. Take a look at the picture above. (And then check out the pics below.) This home on Michigan Avenue in Saginaw went on the market roughly 90 days ago according to the Zillow listing. That puts us at about the beginning of the summer of 2022, give or take, right? But the photo shows a large front yard covered with a thin layer of snow. Clearly, this photo wasn't taken in June.
This begs the question: Was this photo taken when there was snow on the ground in Saginaw in order to make it look like it's the McCallister home? Ah, we may never know, but we certainly appreciate savvy marketing when we see it. Well played, folks, well played.
That's Where the Similarities End
Although this home clearly looks like the McCallisters' home from the iconic movie on the outside, that's where the similarities end.
The inside isn't quite as posh as the movie set house, which is located near Chicago. According to the listing, there is only one bedroom and one bathroom in this 16,000 foot structure. There are, however, 80 or so parking spaces which make it perfect for an office building or other commercial venture.
