New Owners Plan to Fix Up, Preserve ‘Ferris Bueller’ Home

The Highland Park home made famous by the movie sold last week.

The new owners of the Highland Park home made famous in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” plan to fix up and preserve the unusual residence’s modern look, according to an article in Crain’s Chicago Business.

The home sold last week after nearly five years and a significant price cut for $1.06 million. The 5,300-square-foot home is made up of two buildings, one of which served as the glassed-in carport through which Ferris’ friend Cameron sends his dad’s Ferrari plunging into the ravine.

In addition to its prominence in film history, the home is known as the best work of A. James Speyer's, an architect, museum curator and Illinois Institute of Technology teacher, according toLandmarks Illinois.

New owners Chris and Meghann Salamasick, who had been living about a mile away from the home, plan to update the home’s functionality but leave the look of it intact, Crain’s reports.

Also, Crain’s deserves a shout out for its clever headline: “New owners plan to save Ferris — the home, that is.
