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.

"THIS IS A STOLEN HOUSE!"
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.
