A. James Speyer’s mid century modern glass and steel house has just sold for $1.06 million. The 4-bedroom, 4-bath, 5,300 square feet home was built in 1953 for textile designers Ben and Frances Rose. Later, a complementary glass pavilion was added about 50 feet from the house. The glass walls literally blur the lines between indoor and outdoor and is situated in a wooded area of Chicago, cantilevered over a ravine.
The sleek house was featured in John Hughes’ 1986 film “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” as the home of Cameron Frye (played Alan Ruck).
