On Christmas afternoon, we went sledding near Genesee, Colorado. The hill we chose is about 20 minutes’ drive from our house. The sledding was in the shadow of the “Sleeper House” – named that after its appearance in the film “Sleeper” – that Woody Allen directed and starred in during 1973. It’s also known as the “Sculptured House” and has its own Wikipedia page.
You can easily see the house from I-70, the largest highway that goes from Denver through the mountains, over to Utah. But this was the closest I had been to the house.
This house has been for sale several times since we’ve lived in Denver – most recently last October. I remember one of those times, it was in a sad state. The newspaper article mentioned that it was falling apart. I think it has been refurbished a few times since then. The owner before the most recent sale had a $3.4 million mortgage on the home. It sold for $1.5 million. (Ouch!)
