Live the Bueller dream

One of the most memorable scenes from 1986’s Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, you’ll remember, had Matthew Broderick’s character’s harebrained scheme for taking the miles off of cohort Cameron’s father’s Ferrari 250 GT California (actually a fiberglass-bodied, MG-based replica, sorry to burst that bubble) going, well, a tad wrong.

Now, you can own the location: the Highland Park, Illinois house. From the realtor’s website: “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. Estate Sale Sold ‘As Is’ No disclosures! This is an amazing architectural treasure.”

Four bedrooms, four bathrooms, 5,300 square feet and all yours for a mil-six-fifty. Anyone want to buy a website? Yours for a mil-six.
