Reversing the Miles: Famed North Shore ‘Ferris Bueller’ Home Gets Facelift

Cameron's house is getting a facelift. But it's not because he sent a vintage Ferrari soaring through the garage's glass facade. The Ben Rose House in Highland Park, influenced by Chicago architect Ludwig Miles van der Rohe, was built in 1953. The iconic mid-century modern home was featured in 1986's "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and is under new ownership. After its original owner died in 2009, a couple purchased the home in 2014 and hired Galena-based architectural firm Baranski, Hammer, Moretta and Sheehy to restore it.
