Recognize the glass wall of that house listing? Maybe the all-around view of lush foliage and green trees? Add a classic Ferrari and a young Matthew Broderick to the picture, and you may recognize the property as the famous house featured in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” Yes, the very house where Bueller’s friend, Cameron Frye, accidentally sent his father’s Ferrari crashing through the full-length windows. The four-bedroom, four-bath house — 370 Beech Street in Highland Park, Ill. — is on the market for sale. All it will cost you is $2.3m, according to the listing at Realtor.com. And that’s without a Ferrari. It’s been on the market for a few months, and multiple calls to the listing agent were not returned. Why the house has yet to sell is a mystery, especially considering there is no shortage of fanfare around it — including a Facebook page devoted to fans of the film that might be interested in pooling money together for a bid (the page has 69 members and is called Let’s Chip in and Buy Cameron’s House!) The film’s director, John Hughes, recently died of a heart attack at age 59. Hughes directed not only Bueller, but “Sixteen Candles,” “The Breakfast Club” and (my favorite) “Weird Science” in the ’80s. The passing of such an influential director must have been lost in the hype around Michael Jackson’s death. At least, it didn’t spark enough public interest to get 370 Beech Street off the market.
