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.”
