Why Is the Ferris Bueller House Still for Sale?
Have you ever wanted to own a famous home? Like this one!
The 57-year-old midcentury modern home at 370 Beech Street in Highland Park, Illinois is instantly recognizable to many 1980s survivors and fans of John Hughes movies as Cameron’s house from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” By now, it’s also known from popping up in the media, as it’s been on the market for over a year.
But this 4-bedroom, 4-bath home has been notable since long before the ’80s. Designed in 1953 by A. James Speyer and David Haid, the house is now heralded as “architecturally significant.” With this significance, and the added cultural cachet of being featured in the movie, comes a price tag: the house is currently listed at a reduced price of $1,650,000. So how’s that market for designer midcentury homes looking lately?
