Which one of you peeps truly, truly, l-o-v-e-s me and has an extra $2.3 million you can loan me, I mean, *cough* give me so I can purchase this home in Highland Park, Illinois featured in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off"? I know how humble some of you are, so to avoid you feeling any awkwardness, rest assured you can simply send me an anonymous donation and it'll be our special little secret. It's all good in the millionaire hood!
In the film, the home belonged to Bueller's best friend Cameron Frye's father and housed a tempting red 1961 Ferrari 250 GTO that Bueller and Frye took for an iconic joyride through Chicago. Remember the famous crash scene when the Ferrari is pushed out into the ravine?
According to the listing agent, Melodee Hughes, the filmmakers had to set up a rail in the pavilion, which is behind the main house, to roll the car out. Fiberglass versions of the Ferrari were used but they didn't smoke when crashed so smoke bombs had to be used.
The home is known as the 'Ben Rose Home' was designed by architects A. James Speyer and David Haid. It has been owned by Rose since it was built in 1953 and is also known as the Ben Rose Auto Museum. Rose died in 2004 and his wife Francis lived there with a caregiver until her death earlier this year.
The contemporary home has four bedrooms and is 5,300 square feet. The garage is also an art showcase for modern pieces as well as vintage cars. There is a separate two-car garage for cars that are driven on a more regular basis. The property is listed as being sold as is with no disclosures and likely needs some renovations and is listed at $2.3 million. [via TMZ]
