Highland Park, ILTHE 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 -No disclosures! This is an amazing architectural treasure.

So apparently the house that was used as “Cameron’s house” in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is now up for sale.  I’m wondering if anyone out there would buy it for that purpose alone or if that means nothing.  Does that actually add value to a house?  “Yeah, remember the supporting actor in that movie? This was his character’s house.”  Don’t get me wrong, the house was used for one of the biggest moments in the movie, but I’m just curious what this house would be listed at if it hadn’t been in a movie.

    maybe not 2.3M, but close. As one of the first ‘Mesian’ knock-offs for mid century modern architecture – I’d say; its location in Highland Park, its extremely unique (and code violating) structural configuration, along with its disjointed realtionship to Architecural history (Phillip Johnson moreso than Mies van der Rohe IMO) combined, bring its value somewhere in the line of a couple million – despite its probable need for serious restoration.

    Above and beyond it’s “ferris” value/appeal.

    This was on the Today Show yesterday, but I want you to know that I read it here first!
