The modernist glass house from the classic John Hughes film has sold for $1 million

Coldwell Banker Residential

After languishing on the market for five years, the modernist Highland Park home that played an important role in the classic John Hughes film Ferris Bueller's Day Off has finally sold for $1.06 million. Completed in 1953, the minimalist glass and steel house comes from A. James Speyer, a student of Mies van der Rohe. In the film, the stoic house served as the residence of Ferris Bueller's sidekick and best friend Cameron Frye, and housed a much beloved 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder that belonged to Cameron's father.

In 2009, many years after the house made a cameo in the popular coming-of-age movie, the house hit the market with an asking price of $2.4 million. The house bounced on and off the market over the next several years, taking numerous price cuts which brought the price tag down to $1.5 million by 2013. The modernist home's luck changed this year as it was scooped up in April, with the sale finally closing yesterday at $1.06 million.

And yes, the listing images showcase a classic racing red Ferrari in the glass and steel garage. However, the classic Ferrari was not included in the sale of the house.
