Buyer? Buyer? Buyer?: Fer­ris Bueller house sells

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

CHICAGO — The Chicago-area home where Fer­ris Bueller’s friend Cameron fa­mously “killed” his fa­ther’s prized Fer­rari fi­nally has a new owner. Crain’s Chicago Busi­ness re­ports that the mod­ernist home in High­land Park sold Thurs­day for $1.06 mil­lion. Craig Ho­gan is re­gional di­rec­tor at Cold­well Banker Pre­views. He wouldn’t say who bought the fourbed­room, steel-and-glass house built on the edge of a wooded ravine. The house, built in 1953 by Mies van der Rohe-pro­tegé A. James Speyer, was first put on the mar­ket in 2009 listed at $2.3 mil­lion. The sleek house was fea­tured in John Hughes’ 1986 film Fer­ris Bueller’s Day Off as the home of Cameron Frye, played by Alan Ruck. Af­ter the Fer­rari crashes through the glass into the ravine, Fer­ris tells Cameron: “You killed the car.”
