'Ferris Bueller' house up for sale, Ferrari Showplace

The movie that made Matthew Broderick, Alan Ruck, Ben Stein and others household names filmed in the elite Chicago Northshore suburbs a few miles down the road, which also made the Ferrari and the glass house famous as well that also contains the living room type, enclosed glass garage, is now for sale.

Movie tip...They used 3 Ferrari 250GT California replica's made of fiberglass for the movie because it was too expensive to even rent one. This youtube contains all the Ferrari scenes except the final one in the house, go figure....(news report)

Want to kill your dad's Ferrari? 'Ferris Bueller' house up for sale:The Highland Park house made famous by the 1986 movie "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" is for sale.

The architecturally stunning, art-filled, 5,300-square-foot house went on the market last week for $2.3 million. Its most famous feature is its steel and glass "pavilion" that hangs over the ravine.

In the movie, an angry Cameron Frye sends his father's rare Ferrari through its glass walls and into the woods.

"There's been a lot of interest in it already," says Sudler Sotheby's International Realtor Meladee Hughes (no relation to movie director John Hughes). "It's spectacular inside. It's like living in a tree house."

The pavilion contains a wall of memorabilia dedicated to the movie, including pictures of actors Matthew Broderick and Alan Ruck taken during the filming, Hughes said.

The owners were avid car collectors and the space is still used for special car events, such as a Ferrari Club meeting held there last weekend.

John Hughes, who still lives on the North Shore, has been informed that the house is for sale but so far they have not heard from him.
