Update (9/24/09): If you’re a fan of the 80′s movie “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” — and we’ve come to learn there are many — you will enjoy this FOX News clip in which Sudler Sotheby’s real estate broker Meladee Hughes walks a reporter through the house, which is for sale for $2.3 million, and gives some background on the room where the car went through the window.
An ouch moment occurs at the end of the clip where the FOX anchor asks about a train whistle in the distance and says “For $2.3 million, I don’t want to be hearing a train whistle.” Oy vey.
Yes, it’s true. The home where “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” was filmed is for sale for $2.3 million. Imagine owning a piece of cinematic real estate history. The glass-walled tree house made famous in John Hughes’ cult classic is for sale. For those who somehow missed the 80′s and haven’t seen the movie, Matthew Broderick plays Ferris Bueller, a mischievous teenager who coerces his friend, Cameron Fry, and girlfriend into skipping school for the day to party across Chicago. All is well until Fry accidentally sends his father’s vintage red Ferrari through the glass pavilion of his house and into a ravine while trying to wind back kilometers on the vehicle.
The home, located at 370 Beech St, Highland Park, IL 60035, boasts incredible views of the surrounding woods, four bedrooms, the famous pavilion, and is located in the exclusive Highland Park area of Illinois. The 5,300 square feet property is comprised of two buildings made of steel and glass construction, cantilevered over a ravine. They were designed by noted 20th Century architects A. James Speyer and David Haid.
