Ben Rose Pavilion in Highland Park, Illinois, where parts of the 1986 comedy “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” were filmed, has come up for sale. The scene where Ferris’ best friend, Cameron Frye, kicks a 1961 Ferrari off of its jack and it flies through a window and into a wooded ravine is perhaps one of the most memorable scenes to be filmed on the property.
Built in 1953 and designed by architects James Speyer and David Haid, the home is located at 370 Beech Street. Renowned textile artist Ben Rose and his wife, Francis, moved onto the property in 1953. Ben died in 2004, and Francis lived there until her death in 2009. This extraordinary property, now listed at $2.3 million, features a 43,560-square feet of land with 5,300-square feet of living space, 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The main attraction is the famous auto pavilion.
