For sale: Ferris Bueller Ferrari house in Highland Park, Illinois, USA

Ferris1

One of our favourite 'guilty pleasure' movies is John Hughes' 80s teen classic, Ferris Bueller's Day Off. And if we had the money, we would be all over one of the key locations from the movie – the mid-century 'Ferrari house', which is located in Highland Park, Illinois, USA and is now up for sale.

In the movie, the glass and steel construction was owned by the parents of Cameron Frye and housed the infamous Ferrari, which Cameron and Ferris used to get around town during that 'day off'. That's not included in the sale – but you'll find the garage, which is capable of holding up to three of your finest classic cars.

Designed by architects A. James Speyer and David Haid back in 1953, the property offers up four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a further four rooms of living space (including a huge lounge) and best of all (as far as we're concerned), an interior that hasn't been severely modernised since the day it was built.

Check out the link below for piles of photographs around the property, then sit down before you read this price – $2,300,000, which works out at around £1.5 million.
