CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago-area home where Ferris Bueller’s friend Cameron famously “killed” his father’s prized Ferrari finally has a new owner.

Crain’s Chicago Business reports that the modernist home in Highland Park sold Thursday for $1.06 million.

Craig Hogan is regional director at Coldwell Banker Previews.  He wouldn’t say who bought the four-bedroom, steel-and-glass house built on the edge of a wooded ravine.

The house, built in 1953 by Mies van der Rohe-protege A. James Speyer, was first put on the market in 2009 listed at $2.3 million.

The sleek house was featured in John Hughes’ 1986 film “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” as the home of Cameron Frye, played by Alan Ruck. After the Ferrari crashes through the glass into the ravine, Ferris tells Cameron: “You killed the car”
