We’ve just spotted on Mirror Celebs that Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker are moving from their Manhattan townhouse. It’s thought they have bought a bigger property in New York City to make way for the arrival of twin girls, due in July.
However, far more exciting is that the house used in the legendary 80’s film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, in which Broderick plays Ferris, has been put up for sale. We first spotted this on Zillow.com, the US online real estate service it is listed on.
So, if you think you can skip school / work and get away with it, like Ferris (although we’re not suggesting that you do, despite today’s lovely weather in the UK), you’ll need a spare £1.43million ($2.3million) to purchase this four-bedroomed, glass-walled tree house made famous in John Hughes’ cult classic.
If you look closely at the photo above (all courtesy of sudlersothebysrealty.com), you can see the restored 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California that Ferris convinced Cameron to let them use to travel into Chicago. Don’t worry, we’re told the glass window that Cameron accidentally sends his father’s vintage Ferrari through has been replaced!
With a hot and dry summer predicted, we’ve been wondering which of the homes listed for sale on Zoopla! would we most like to spend it at. With prices falling 18.4% in the last 12 months, now could be a great time to snap up that dream home by the sea if you have the financial wherewithal. Here’s our top 5:
A fantastic 6 bedroom Art Deco home, perched high about Falmouth Estuary with stunning views, charming grounds and for entertainment-nirvana, a 16-setting, circular, glass-walled dining room with sea views. Yours for a tidy £2.75m.
With the exception only of prime central London, New York and Moscow property, Sandbanks, a small peninsula jutting out into Poole Harbour, boasts the world’s most expensive real estate, with an average price per sq ft of £850. Aside from the wonderful views this property affords of Poole Harbour, we can imagine throwing some impressive parties in its landscaped garden which leads right up to the waters edge.
Salcombe, on Devon’s south coast is one of Britain’s most beautiful tourist spots. Its natural harbour features sheltered beaches, perfect anchor for yachtsmen, varied fish and birdlife and a town that offers great dining opportunities. The vantage point from which this 4 bedroom flat looks out over the harbour is what sets it apart.
If you’re attracted by miles of golden sand and surf breaks, then this modern house for sale in Perranporth might well appeal to you. For the asking price of £900k, you’ll be able to watch the sun set over the Atlantic from this spectacular terrace.
Finally, if you’re in the market for a white-washed, castellated, beach front property, complete with turrets, a huge terrace, conservatory and four bedrooms, then this might just be the home for you. You just need to be able to afford the £2.25m price tag.
