This home located in Highland Park, Illinois, was featured in this 1986 comedy. Its definitely a looker but I dont think I could live in a home with surrounding glass walls. Too many fingerprints. Known as the Ben Rose Home, the two-building structure was constructed mostly of steel and glass. It was designed by architects A. James Speyer and David Haid in 1953 and sits atop a wooded ravine. Can you guess which movie it’s from?

For the inaugural “guess the famous house”, I chose a house from one of my favorite 80′s movies and probably one my favorites of all time. The movie is a children’s classic written by none other than Steven Spielberg. This beautiful home, located in Astoria, Oregon is nearly 100 years old now and I hope will be there forever. Turn on Cyndy Lauper’s “Good Enough” if you are having trouble figuring this one out. Answer: The Goonies.
