    Default Ferris Bueller house up for sale‎

    Fans of Ferris Bueller's Day Off now have a chance to get their hands on one rather large piece of memorabilia.
    A luxury home that features in the iconic '80s film is up for sale for $1.65 million.
    In the film, the 5,300 square foot residence, located in Highland Park, Illinois, was the family home of Bueller's neurotic best friend Cameron Frye.

    For sale: This home in Highland Park, Illinois, which featured in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, is on the market for $1.65m
    Custom built: The glass-enclosed garage, where the character Cameron had a meltdown, was designed especially to store a collection of vintage cars

    Bow bow... chicka chicka: Ferris Bueller in the famous garage scene

    Eighties classic: Matthew Broderick starred as Ferris, while Alan Ruck played his neurotic best friend Cameron Frye

    The character famously has a breakdown when he returns his father's Ferrari and discovers that hundreds of miles have been added to the speedometer.
    Cameron and Ferris then watch in horror as the luxury vehicle breaks through the glass garage and smashes below.
    The glass-wrapped home boasts four bedrooms, three bathrooms and features floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking trees.
    Architects A. James Speyer and David Haid designed the 1953 house.
    The glass-enclosed garage was designed especially to store a collection of vintage cars.
    The home originally went on the market in 2009 for $2.3 million.

    Room with a view: The home features floor to ceiling windows which look out over trees

    Minimalist: The home, built in 1953, was designed by architects A. James Speyer and David Haid

    The 1986 coming-of-age comedy film stars Matthew Broderick as Ferris, a charismatic teen slacker who decides to bunk off high school and have a day of fun around Chicago.
    He encourages his girlfriend, Sloane, played by Mia Sara, and best friend, Cameron, played by Alan Ruck, to join him and hijacks ensues.

    It was written and directed by the late John Hughes, who was also the man behind The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles and Pretty in Pink.

    Cooking up trouble: The home was the scene of plenty of high jinks in the film

    I'd feel so bare that outsiders could see my every move.

    And do these owners own more than 5 items FFS?!?!?

    I don't see how that could be 5,300 square feet with 4 bedrooms/3 baths. It looks really small in the pic.

    The setting is gorgeous, though. Being in the middle of all those trees would be great.

    You'd be totally in the woods,so I don't think that's much of an issue. Looks like the outside pics show curtains on the interior, so you would have privacy.

    Ever since I saw that movie, that house is the only house I've ever wanted. I don't like the kitchen lay out though. Seems like it would be hard to cook and entertain. But anyone got a1.68 million I could borrow.

    "I dented the shit out of it."

    I love the house itself but major redecorating would be in order. Also, i bet it's a snake haven.

    If anyone was tossing around the idea of snapping this house up and moving to Highland Park, Ill., it's been reduced again and is back on the market for $1.5 million.

    It's a cool house.

    I love it. The only problem for me is that it's too far from a beach.
    See, Whores, we are good for something. Love, Florida
