Most Known For
Cameron's house in the 1986 John Hughes Classic, Ferris Bueller's Day Off
The Chicago-area house made famous in the 1986 classic film “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” is back on the market in Highland Park, IL with a $1.5M price tag. According to Curbed Chicago, the Ben Rose house, better known to movie buffs as Cameron’s very pristine mid-century modern home in the movie, is back on the market after a brief break and a major price chop.
The glass-and-steel home was originally listed in 2009 for $2.3 million. It later took a half mil price chop to $1.8 million and finally to $1.65 million until it was taken off the market in 2011. Now, it’s back, asking $1.5 million.
Built in 1953, the 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom main house that cantilevers over ravines is also joined by pavilion/guest house that features a kitchen, bath, and 4 car interior parking—with plenty of room for a pristine red Ferrari.
If Ferris had to write the property listing, he’d say “The place is like a museum. It’s very beautiful and very cold, and you’re not allowed to touch anything.”

Playing the awkwardly awesome McLovin in Superbad
2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large backyard
Christopher Mintz-Plasse, the actor who played the quirky and lovable one-named lady killer McLovin in the hit “Superbad,” has purchased himself a sweet little starter home in Los Angeles! Public property records show that Mintz-Plasse plopped down $515,000 for a two-bedroom, two-bathroom, 924-square-foot home. The deal closed on January 9, 2013. While the property isn’t super luxurious, it’s a nice, cozy place to call home for a guy who got his big break in a major way. According to reports, the actor auditioned with two high school friends for the part of Fogell, aka “McLovin,” in the film Superbad despite the fact he didn’t even have professional head shots (he ended up taking one with his camera phone just before the audition). Since Superbad, Mintz-Plasse has had starring roles in Role Models, Year One, Kick-Ass, and Fright Night.
Instead of going the typical “child actor” route of blowing all his dough on a flashy pad, Mintz-Plasse started small, not far from where he grew up. His new place is a remodeled home in a prime Woodland Hills location with a large front lawn and brick walkways. Upon entering the space, you’ll find rich wood floors, beautiful moldings, recessed lighting, and an open feel. The kitchen has custom-built cabinets, black granite countertops, updated kitchen appliances, a tile floor, french doors, and views to the backyard. The master suite has a walk-in closet with even more custom storage, french doors facing out to rear grounds, and a remodeled master bath with double sinks and a large stall shower. The home’s second bath has also been remodeled. The backyard is complete with a fantastic redwood deck, brick masonry, a large lawn/play area, and a covetable detached bonus room, which also doubles as a guest room.
We’re sure Mintz-Plasse is McLovin his new home!
