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.
