For Sale: The House From Ferris Bueller

Posted by Jakub

If I would have won the Mega Millions yesterday my first purchase would be this house. Reported by Paste Magazine, the home from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is up for sale. Built in 1953, The Ben Rose House — located in Highland Park, Illinois — was designed by architects A. James Speyer and David Haid. The home is listed for $1.65 million, lets all pitch in and get it then drive a Ferrari off the back.

More info and a great picture gallery over at the Sotheby’s listing page

Crazy that it’s still listed…
I believe it has been on the market for quite some time now.
Nevertheless I’d love to make that into a studio.

Great post, cool to think someone could live there, great nostalgia. Personally, I think the style of the house looks like a dump. I never liked the ‘modern’ look.

That’s really quite cheap! Well, in CA it would be. I wonder if it’s an unpleasant house to live in or something? The fact that the owners rented it out for filming implies they didn’t live there full time for some reason.

A stunning house, I would love to live there amongst the trees, it must have a real feeling of being at one with nature. As it happens I was watching the film just last night!

“Cameron’s house is like a museum… it’s very cold and you’re not allowed to touch anything.”

“When Cameron was in Egypt’s land, let my Cameron go…” It appears to be so peaceful and spacious. A definite step up from my 1 bedroom apt.

I live 10 minutes away from Highland Park. You are all welcome to join me when I go get close to it. Possibly touch it.

So, i guess there’d be no stone throwing? But, seriously.. I love the way it’s mounted off the edge of the hill, kinda floating above serenity.
