‘Ferris Bueller’ House Sells for $1.06 Million

Fans of ’80s classic movies will be jealous of a recent real estate deal: The famous glass house from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” has sold for $1.06 million.

The Chicago-area home, which gained fame for being featured as the house of Cameron Fyre’s wealthy family in the 1986 comedy, wasn’t an easy sell. The deal was finally closed five years after it went on the market, and it went through price cuts before being sold.

The house was originally designed by A. James Speyer in 1953, and in 1974 was joined to the famous glassy pavilion.

Despite the real estate difficulties, the unique property has a special place in movie history. It’s home to one of the most iconic scenes in the coming-of-age John Hughes classic, in which Frye totals his father’s cherished Ferrari.

Hopefully, the new owners will have better luck with the place.
