CHICAGO, May 27 (UPI) -- The Illinois house that belonged to character Cameron's family in the popular 1986 movie "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" is up for sale for $2.3 million.

Built in 1953, the 5,300-square-foot home in Highland Park was where Cameron memorably leans on his father's Ferrari, knocking it off a jack and sending it crashing through a glass window and into a ravine below.

The Chicago Sun-Times quoted a Realtor as describing the property, which features two glass and steel buildings, as "an amazing architectural treasure."

"It's not just about the car going in the ravine," Meladee Hughes, the Sudler Sotheby's agent listing the property, told the Sun-Times. "It's just a wonderful property."

In the movie, Matthew Broderick played Ferris and Alan Ruck played Cameron.
