Bueller? Bueller? Bueller? ...
Here's your chance to own a piece of cinematic history -- the location where Ferris Bueller's pal Cameron accidentally sends his father's prized Ferrari plunging through a picturesque plate glass window into the ravine below.
"THE BEN ROSE HOME-site of the famous movie "Ferris Bueller's Day Off", cantilevered over the ravine, these two steel and glass buildings - which can never be duplicated - have incredible vistas of the surrounding woods. This is a unique property designed by A. James Speyer and David Haid, both notable architects of the 20th Century."
The 5,300 square foot house in the Highland Park area of Chicago, Illinois doubled as the home of Cameron Frye - played by Alan Ruck - and featured in one famous scene where he and Bueller, played by Matthew Broderick, accidentally destroyed a Ferrari by driving it through a glass-walled garage. The home comes complete with a whole wall memorabilia from the John Hughes movie, including on-set snaps of Broderick and Ruck. This magnificent example of mid-century minimalism can be yours for only $2,300,000. Source
