$1.06 million amount is being paid for the famous Ferris Bueller house in Chicago shown in the 1986 movie "Ferris Bueller's Day Off".

Ferris Bueller house is a house made of steel and glass, yet it has been sold for hefty sum due to its popularity as a Fer. This Chicago-area house is being featured in the 1986 movie "Ferris Bueller's Day Off". 

According to a real estate brokerage, the two-building house located in the Highland Park is sold for $1.06 million. Ferris Bueller house was first came on sale five years ago.  

However, the downward trend in the real estate market delayed the sale of Ferris Bueller house. The brokerage's luxury division director of Coldwell Banker Previews International, Craig Hogan, said that this house has a "very specific" architecture.

But Ferris Bueller house sold at half of the original listing price of $2.3 million. Hogan described the Ben Rose Home as "two glass cubes that are positioned over a ravine." 

"You have to want to live there," he said. "Fortunately, we found a couple who do -- they're in love with that style." 

 

However, the buyers' identities were not revealed. James Speyer and David Haid were the designers of this house. The small building of two-building Ferris Bueller house was featured as a garage holding a Ferrari in the John Hughes "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" movie.

The hero of the movie (Matthew Broderick)and his friend Cameron used this Ferrari for a joyride around Chicago. However, this car got crashed later in the movie.
