Iconic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off House Finally Sells for $1.06M

Ferris Bueller Home Sale

The Ben Rose house — a.k.a. Cameron's crib from the 1986 film — has been a hard sell over the years

The famous glass house of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off fame just sold for $1.06 million. While the ’80s comedy classic is beloved by movie fans, prospective homeowners haven’t quite felt the same way about the building itself.

The unusual Highland Park, Ill., property’s adjustable walls, two separate units and popularity as a pop culture landmark had real estate agents going “…Anyone? Anyone?” for years — its $1.06m price tag is well below the original $2.3 million asking price from 2009. Perhaps the house’s notable architectural history — it was designed by A. James Speyer in 1953 in the style of Ludwidg Mies van der Rohe — made up for the lack of a fiery-red Ferrari in the end.
