Hump Day Have Your Say: Would You Buy Cameron’s House From Ferris Bueller’s Day Off?

Just spotted this story on the interwebs today.  That cool looking glass house that was the home of Cameron Frye in the film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is back on the market.  Just a few short years ago this home designed by architect A. James Speyer in 1953 (built in 1970) was listed for a cool 2.3 million.  Now it is back on the market and you can get it for only 1.5 million.  Wow what a deal, you may already have that under the cushions of your couch.

Not sure if I could afford the windex required to keep all these windows clean.  Also I rarely wear pants.

Sorry the sale does not include the 1961 Ferrari from the film.  However, as luck would have it, the replica that was used in the film is now up at auction and is expected to sell for about $100,ooo.  What a coup that would be to own both the home from the film and the car.  I would totally reshoot that scene but this time save the car from crashing out the window.  Auction details right here.  Do you think Cameron’s dad ended up beating him to death with a tire iron after the final credits rolled in the film?

Check out the home’s listing right here on Zillows.

 

So is this the house from a film you would be interested in buying?  Or is there perhaps some other house featured in a film you would be more interested in owning.  Let us know in the comment section.  O and I just re-watched Ferris Bueller’s Day off a couple of weeks ago.  It is available for streaming on Amazon and just as awesome as you remember it.

 

Save Ferris

    If I had 1.5 million I purchase this abode but considering I have about none of that I guess I will pass, hey you never know maybe we can become famous movie bloggers and make some real dough.

      I am gonna buy this place and turn it into the 3 guys office.

    Last year or something like that, I remember this being on Yahoo. I forget why, but nobody wanted to buy it for the longest time. You’d think there would be some eccentric mill/billionaire out there who just had to have it, but oh well?

    Personally, I’d want to live in either the fire station from Ghostbusters or….well, I’m not sure which one, but a haunted house from one of the many supernatural horror movies out there. A lot of the time, the houses in those movies are awesome.

      Let’s buy it and open up a Ferris Bueller Museum.

      That Ghostbusters HQ is a good call that fire pole could double as a stripper pole.

    I just submitted my bid. I figure it’s about $100,000 worth of windows.

    • Adam August 8, 2013, 9:05 am

      Chris, I look forward to the moving in party.

    I would buy that house just for the sole purpose of being able to walk naked around in your house with all those glass windows. how liberating that would be.

    • Adam August 8, 2013, 9:06 am

      Let everyone witness Tom’s glory! ;-)

    If I had the money to buy both I totally would. How could I pass up the opportunity to own two iconic pieces of movie history? If I had to pick though, I’d go with the car. I’d imagine that thing would be a total chick magnet regardless of whether the women had seen Ferris Bueller or not haha.

    • Adam August 8, 2013, 9:07 am

      Evan that is very true, that car is sure to be a chick magnet.

  • Sammy the Blade August 8, 2013, 7:54 am

    Hmm…$100k for the car…anyone got any spare cash lying around they want to donate to me?

    • Adam August 8, 2013, 9:07 am

      Sadly I did not win the Powerball last night so you are out of luck Sammy.

  • Maurice Mitchell August 8, 2013, 8:51 am

    That house always impressed me because of the view, so I’d probably bid on it. Good find Adam.

    • Adam August 8, 2013, 9:08 am

      Maurice the only downside I could see would be the Chicago winters. However, if you can afford that place you can probably afford a winter place in Florida or Cali.
