One of the most iconic homes from 1980s cinema has finally sold. The home featuring a steel and glass pavilion that featured prominently in the 1986 comedy classic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off has finally sold after several years of being on and off the Chicago area real estate market.
The home sold for $1.06 million dollars, nearly a third of its asking price when it was relisted at $1.5 million last October.
Located in the Chicago suburb of 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. It was featured in a memorable scene involving a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California, 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.
