The steel and glass house immortalized in the pop classic movie “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” is for sale.
The original house, located in the wooded Chicago suburb of Highland Park, was designed by A. James Speyer, a protĂ©gĂ© of Mies van der Rohe, in 1953. The glass pavilion, designed by the noted architect David Haid, was added a few years later, according to Meladee Hughes, a listing agent at Sudler Sotheby’s International Realty.
In the movie, the house was home to Bueller’s friend, Cameron. His father used the glass pavilion to display his red Ferrari, which (spoiler alert!) ultimately ended up in the ravine that the house overhangs.
The four-bedroom, 5,300-square-foot house is priced at $2.3 million, according to the listing.
“It’s not just about the car going in the ravine,” Ms. Hughes told the Chicago Sun-Times. “It’s just a wonderful property.”
