If you live in the Chicago area (or would like to!), you can purchase the house from Ferris Bueller's Day Off for the low, low price of $1.65 million. The home is in Highland Park.


Before I knew I was gay, I had such a crush on Matthew Broderick. I always tried to see more when he's in the shower scene at the beginning of the movie but couldn't understand why I always craned my neck to see something I never would. I figured it out soon enough, I suppose.

Apparently Ferris and Cameron figured it out too. The trailer for the little known sequel, Brokeback Bueller, is after the jump.

Thanks for the posting. That's quite a house, and I imagine it will go to someone who's keen to possess a bit of cinematic history.

Just a clarification, though: Obama's house is in Hyde Park, on the south side of Chicago (the residents of which are notoriously proud of having him there). Highland Park is a different city altogether, although near Chicago, and home to the Ravinia music festival.

Thanks Yasmin. I don't know why I got them mixed up. That's what I get for writing while having a first cup of coffee this morning, eh?

I removed the reference to Obama's house.

I too had a HUGE crush on Matthew Broderick, even before I came out. It was his eyes and that gorgeous smile. Now I can tell I'm just old, because my first thought on looking at the house was how much it would cost to heat and cool with all that glass.

I didn't know that house was actually in Chicago. I guess I assumed it was in a hollywood studio or something.
