"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.
