Ferris Bueller Home Sells for $1 Million

The car pavilion featured in the 1986 film Ferris Bueller's Day Off Paramount

The Highland Park home and its infamous glass-walled auto pavilion where the film's most memorable scene took place ultimately went for half of what the owners had originally sought in 2009

The steel-and-glass home near Chicago where Ferris Bueller’s buddy sent his father’s prized Ferrari through sold for $1.06 million on Friday.

The 1953 home, designed by A. James Speyer — a protégé of the pioneering modernist architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe — was purchased by an unnamed banker and a lawyer, according to the Chicago Tribune. It initially went on the market in May 2009 with an asking price of $2.3 million.

The home and car pavilion are featured in the 1986 film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, which starred Matthew Broderick. It’s in the pavilion, where Bueller and Cameron Frye are attempting to reverse the car’s odometer to hide that they had driven it, that Cameron knocks the car and sends it through the glass.
