Want to kill your dad's Ferrari? 'Ferris Bueller' house up for sale By Jamie Sotonoff | Daily Herald Staff 

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.

This house, like the car, is so choice.

I thought this would be of interest. It encompasses real estate, entertainment and nostalgia! It appears as though I was wrong. I'll take my popcorn and VHS copy of the movie home with me.

Um, he's sick. My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with a girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious
