    Re: Ferris Bueller House

    It looks like the owners have been trying to move this one for a while. The history on that links shows it listed on and off back to mid 2009. It is an interesting house, but I wouldn't want to cough up the money they were asking for it.

    The Home Alone house was on the market a while back as well. I think it was listed around $850k. Now that is one I would have taken a look at if I was shopping in the Chicago market.

    It looks like something an architect would build for themselves. Not the worst example of that though.

    A millionaire should buy it and tear it down, just to hear the cry of a million pop culture enthusiasts. I bet people would chain themselves to it on demolition day.

    I never would have guessed it was in the middle of a residential area.

    I bet those huge windows aren't so great during the winter when the leaves are off the trees and the neighbors pretend they're playing SIMS...

    Duh, it's in Egypt land! When Cameron was in Egypt land, let my Cameron go......


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    False. The home alone house was in the 1.5-2 mil range.

    I stand corrected. I could have sworn I had seen a lower price back when it was on the market, but Google tells me it ultimately sold for 1.58 mil. Either way, I'd buy it ten times over before the Ferris Bueller house. Though I'd watch Ferris Bueller ten times over before Home Alone.

    I can't decide should I buy this house or donate to the SEZ?

    Buy it, and move it to the SEZ. Hello, suite.
