Now if ever there was a house in which to escape a pair of pesky Christmas thieves, this is it.

Located at 4500 Browndale Avenue in Edina, this gorgeous brick Georgian home is on the market for $1.445 million. 

And since it's December, we feel it only pertinent to point out it bears more than a passing resemblance to the Chicago house that features in holiday favorite, "Home Alone."

Built in 1936 by renowned local architect Carl Hansen, the 5,134 square foot corner-lot property is filled with luxury features, starting with the 3-inch thick, solid mahogany front door.

The living room is dominated by a wood-burning fireplace that comes with a 9-foot wide, Adams-style surround and built-in period screen, while the main and second floors are finished with crown molding and hardwood flooring throughout.

A stunning, south-facing kitchen is complete with built-in display cabinets, new or near-new appliances, and a sliding door to the side yard and patio.

The main staircase to the second floor still has the original bannister (no sledding down the stairs) while the landing comes with a laundry chute and French doors to a sundeck.

Four of the home's five bedrooms can be found on the second floor, including the main "owner's suite" bedroom that has its own bathroom, while the 5th bedroom is on the third floor.

Want some privacy when entertaining? Head downstairs to the lower level, where there's a family room and a paneled bar area.
