'Sleeper House' set to be auctioned.
The futuristic Genesee Mountain house made famous by Woody Allen's 'Sleeper' movie sold at a foreclosure auction Wednesday for $1.5 million — $1 more than the minimum bid placed by the lender that foreclosed on the iconic home.
Denver investor John Dilday, a regular on the auction circuit who is known by his cronies in the industry as 'the Godfather,' said he already has a number of people interested in buying the house at 855 Visionary Trail.
Dilday typically buys homes to flip them to other investors.
