Cameron’s House From ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ Is For Sale

    Want to own a piece of movie history? Gerard Butler’s loin cloth from 300 is not for sale slappy, so calm the jets. For a meager $1.65 million you can own the house Cameron crashed a car through in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

    The glassy midcentury house where Cameron Frye had one of film’s greatest conniptions in the greatest playing-hooky story of our time, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, is now on the market for $1.65 million.

    I know little to nothing about real estate values but doesn’t it seem like the place should have been worth that much when the movie first came out. I looked like an expensive joint back in the day. I would have guessed at least $5 million by now.

    Designed by architects A. James Speyer and David Haid in 1953, the cantilevered steel-and-glass property offers 5,300 square feet of living space and floor-to-ceiling windows throughout.

    Floor-to-ceilings throughout? I’d take more than a few days off if that were my place. Invite Sloane over for a much better day off. Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and do it in front of the windows so all the wildlife can watch, you might miss it. That wasn’t the quote? Hm.
