The Chicago suburbs home instantly recognizable for its role in the 1986 classic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off was placed back on the market last week, and it can be yours for just $1.5 million.
Located in Highland Park, the home is known as the Rose House and Pavilon and was used in the film as the home of Ferris’s best friend Cameron and featured in the memorable scene involving a Ferrari, a glass wall and a drop into a wooded ravine. The Rose House was designed by A. James Speyer and built in 1953 for textile designer Frances Rose. A steel and glass pavilion that was built over a sloping ravine was added onto the property in 1974 to house Rose’s classic car collection.
The property was first listed back in 2009 for $2.3 million and at the time there was also some talk of possibly demolishing the structure. The price on the home was dropped twice to $1.65 until the Rose Family took it off the market in 2011 to perform some minor renovations. The Rose family has remained committed to finding a seller who would be interested in preserving the building for its architectural significance.
