It took five years, but the Ferris Bueller house finally sold

'Ferris Bueller' House Finally Sells After 5 Years on the Market

After five years of being on the market, the Ferris Bueller house was finally sold.

The two-building home in Chicago's Highland Park played a memorable role in the 1986 movie "Ferris Bueller's Day Off."

In a classic scene, Bueller's friend Cameron Frye sends a classic 1961 Ferrari crashing through the pavilion's plate glass windows into a ravine.

The property was first listed in 2009 for $2.3 million but found no takers. The price was reduced twice before coming off the market in 2011 for some light rehab work. Then, the asking price was reduced again to $1.5 million.

The final sale price was $1 million -- less than half what it was listed for in '09. Maybe people don't want fans driving by and gawking ... or perhaps life in a glass box is just as unappealing as it sounds.

Or maybe the Obamaconomy is destroying the nation.

Holy sh*. That's a house? I thought that was just the garage for the car. How could that possibly be worth 1 million? That's insane.

That was not the house, that was the garage. The house is separate and they never show it.
Who the hell wants to live in a terrarium? I sure as hell don't. Geez, the heating bills alone in the winter must cost more than the damn house!!!

They do not show the whole house... inside and out.. Who knows?...Maybe kitchen, bathrooms etc. were outdated .. Nice setting.....not enough information here.

If you can afford a Ferrari California the
price of the house is merely academic.

yes, this is news in the LIFESTYLE section.....let me help you out there are different sections in the news...Not all things have to be hard hitting to fit in one of the many sections. If you are looking for hard hitting news stop clicking on links for the "fluff" news. They run these types of stories daily so watch out for them.

Property taxes should be sky high as well,,,Highland Park is a pretty well-to-do suburb on the north shore of Chicago.

Yup, at 1 million it's likely going to be a tear-down.

anyone else notice the "recommended for you" section just above "join this discussion"?

I don't know what everyone is getting on the "recommended for you" section, but mine has artwork/photos of a vagina and breast. Frankly, I don't appreciate it. They need to re-think this section.

Could not agree more. In fact, I'm assaulted with more and more of this type of shock photos on AOL. Getting really, really old.

yep, that's what I was talking about.... big naked hairy puss in your face.... nice. Trust me when I say I don't appreciate that "recommendation". just because it's "art" its ok to show that? They DO need to rethink it, or at least THINK. Most people DON'T want to look at smut at the bottom of every single article.
