The Winnetka house where “Home Alone” filmed has apparently found a buyer just days after it was put on the market for $5.25 million.

As of May 31, the home was listed as “contingent” on the listing website Zillow — meaning a sale is underway.

The red brick house was last sold in 2012 for $1.59 million and has since been renovated and expanded.

The listing agent described the home as “a legendary holiday dream home, re-imagined for modern-day luxury: The stately brick Georgian residence of ‘Home Alone’ fame brings forward a rare opportunity to own one of the most iconic movie residences in American pop culture.”

The inside is nearly unrecognizable as the home Kevin McCallister protected from burglars in the 1990 film.

The basement includes a fully equipped gym, recreation space, a full bath, wet bar, movie theater and an indoor sports court “featuring a true 3-point line.”

But from the curb, the place looks the same. And it remains a tourist destination.

In an emailed statement, Dawn McKenna and Katie Moor, the listing agents with Coldwell Banker Realty, declined to disclose details but confirmed: “An offer is now pending after less than one week on the market — and within days of showings. We’re thrilled with the way this home captured everyone’s attention and hearts due to its well-deserved place in cinematic history and the timeless holiday memories it evokes.”
