Real Estate Beat: Ferris Bueller’s Ferrari house
List Price: $1,650,000
The Property: This suburban Chicago home became famous after it appeared in the 1986 movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. In the movie, the 5,300-square-foot house was owned by Ferris Bueller’s friend, Cameron Frye. In a scene from the movie, Frye sends his father’s Ferrari through one of the house’s glass walls and into the woods. It’s the same mid-century Ferrari house that was listed in 2009 for $2.3 million, but now the list price has been reduced to just $1,650,000. Designed by architects A. James Speyer and David Haid, the Ferris Bueller House is an amazing architectural treasure.
Physical Address: 370 N Beech St, Highland Park, Illinois, United States
The Setting: Earlier, Sudler Sotheby’s International Realtor Meladee Hughes has said that being in this home is like living in a tree house. Located in Highland Park, Illinois, the 5,300 square foot residence offers incredible views of the surrounding woods. The contemporary styled home sits on approximately one acre, and features floor-to-ceiling windows.
Interiors & Exteriors:
Officially called the Ben Rose Home, it comprises two glass and steel buildings cantilevered over a ravine. The home’s steel and glass pavilion has a wall that shows behind-the-scenes photographs of Alan Ruck and Matthew Broderick from the movie. There are four bedrooms and four bathrooms in the house. The Ferris Bueller House has a 3-car garage, staff quarters and a circular driveway.
