On the Market: Cameron's House in Ferris Bueller's Day Off and THE house from House of Sand and Fog


FERRIS: If I had to live in that house, I'd pray for a disease, too. The place is like a museum. It's very beautiful and very cold. You're not allowed to touch anything. Can you appreciate what it must have been like to be there as a baby?

For $2,300,000.00 YOU could own the house that housed the Ferrari in Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Set over a creek in the Highland Park woods - north of Chicago - the home is a stunner.

Description from

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.

BEHRANI:Do you remember our bungalow on the Caspian, how I ordered the trees cut down on the west side so we may view the sea? ... I today have bought for us another bungalow. I purchased this home for a price no one would believe.

At a more 'affordable' $1,999,000.00 you could own the 'bungalow' from House of Sand and Fog.

Thanks to L.A. Land Blog we learn:
The ocean-view house staged as a San Francisco property in the 2003 movie "House of Sand and Fog" has come on the market at $1,999,000.

Actually in Malibu, the 1,239-square-foot house was built in 1955, sits on more than an acre and has two bedrooms and 1 1/2 bathrooms.

This is a probate sale, so I wouldn't worry about the film's tragic plot playing out in real life.

-- Lauren Beale

I have to comment on Lauren's point about the movie's tragic plot not being an issue in probate. Hmmm.... still could be an issue. If the deceased's family has emotional ties to the house but cannot afford to own it themselves, there could be a similar plot. Something like this, perhaps:

DAUGHTER OF DECEASED: I grew up in this house and you think you can come in here with your millions of dollars and buy, er, TAKE it from me?! This is a stolen house!! I will now cash your check. Thank you."
Or not.

Let's play a game.

Which house would YOU rather own? And Why? Who wants to start?

Cameron's house. It's a better story, it's not in Malibu and I assume it comes with a busted up Ferrari

Me too. Cameron's house. More my style, it's almost an extension of the woods, it has a river running under it, it's near Chicago, I could wake up every morning and sing: "When Cameron was in Egypt Land.... Let my Cameron go!"

Oh- and of course, the busted up Ferrari. Good point.

I'd definitely go with Cameron's house, and precisely because of being able to sing the song. Er, and the view isn't bad either.

First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I've had a
tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my
thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to
15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin.
Any suggestions or hints? Thank you!
