You may remember Cameron Frye’s extraordinary steel and glass house and garage from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” but did you know that the famous Highland Park home, now for sale for $1.5 million, is also tied to the structural steel industry?
Coldwell Banker Realty says the home is “notable for its progressive design, as both the home and pavilion sit on pylons that lift it above grade. In 1958, the house was one of 12 homes in the nation featured in a Bethlehem Steel publication promoting the use of steel framing for residential design,” according to a recent HLNTV.com article.
Also known as the Ben Rose house, as it has always been owned by the Rose family, the 4,300-sq.-ft home was built in 1953 and designed by architects A. James Speyer and David Haid.
