Ferris Bueller wannabes—like me—with enough money—unlike me—have a reason to be happy: The stunning Ben Rose Home, which was Cameron's house in the movie, is now available for sale.

The property includes two buildings. One of them was used as a garage/car museum in real life and in the movie. The home has four bedrooms and four full baths, with beautiful forest views. Total size: 5300 square feet. But beyond the Ferris Bueller lore, the Ben Rose Home—designed by A. James Speyer and David Haid—this is my dream home: Simple, elegant, built with glass, aluminium, cedar wood, and steel over a wild ravine in the middle of the Highland Park's woods, in Illinois. In other words, Grade A architecture/property porn.

If I had the $2,300,000 I would buy it in a heartbeat. Sadly, I don't. Who wants to buy this for me? Anyone? Anyone?

THE BEN ROSE HOME-site of the famous movie "Ferris Bueller's Day Off", cantilevered over the ravine, these two steel and glass buildings, which can never be duplicated, have incredible vistas of the surrounding woods. This is a unique property designed by A. James Speyer and David Haid, both notable architects of the 20th Century. Estate Sale Sold -No disclosures! This is an amazing architectural treasure.
