Glass House from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off for Sale

Posted on: August 11, 2009

Despite my very traditional home here in New Orleans, I have always harbored a secret passion for glass/modernist houses. Philip Johnson – my hero. AND Mies van der Rohe (of course) owns my favorite design, the Farnsworth House.

Imagine my surprise when this very well known house (Cameron’s) from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off popped up on The Daily Beast. I would be in there is a second if I could! Of course, I’d have to sell every stick of furniture I own and start over from scratch. Sounds like fun, actually.

Here’s the link to the real estate listing.

I love the wooded setting - a treehouse. Perfect.

When Cameron was in Egypt’s land…let my Cameron go.

I thought it looked familiar, I love Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Also, I love the house, it’s absolutely gorgeous. Especially in the day time. Although, it might get a bit spooky at night.

Driven past this a hundred times. It’s in the northern Illinois suburb of Highland Park, about 10 minutes from where I live. Really cool looking home!

Nate and Louis

Well, hey there. I'm Nathan and this is the Laurel Street Blog. It's a place for talking about design, decor and DIY (with small amounts of snarkery snuck in). I'm a pretty restless guy who loves house projects and lives in a 150+ year old cottage on Laurel Street in New Orleans. Since the house always has something going on with it (or falling off of it) I'm subsequently blessed with a never-ending supply of Web content to share. Oh - and you can drop me a line anytime LaurelStreetNola@gmail.com. Enjoy!

Can I get a tweet up in here? Follow along @LaurelStreet
