Sleeper House Auctioned for $1.5 Million

The home used in Woody Allen’s “Sleeper” movie, which is located at 855 Visionary Trail, Golden, CO 80401 (above), was sold in a foreclosure auction yesterday for $1.5 million, reportedly $1 more than the minimum bid placed by the lender that foreclosed on the home. The Sleeper house, also known as the “Sculptured House,” has been in foreclosure trouble for the past couple of years. It is on the National Register of Historic Places. [Source: denverpost.com]

Nicolas Cage’s Bel Air Home Sells for $10.5 Million

Finally, Nicolas Cage’s former Bel-Air mansion (above) has sold. When the actor lost his English Tudor-style mansion to foreclosure earlier this year, it went on the auction block in April, but it failed to sell. Citibank then listed it for sale in June for $12,750,000, which generated interest. This week’s closing on the mansion is reportedly for $10.5 million to a “limited liability company,” which means another celebrity could have snatched it up. It was previously owned by entertainers Tom Jones and Dean Martin. [Source: LA Times]

Virtual Property Sells for $335,000 — in Real Money

This is not a joke: A player on the massive EntropiaPlanets virtual universe by the name of “Buzz Erik Lightyear” purchased a large, popular virtual space station, Crystal Palace, for 3,300,000 PED (Project Entropia Dollars), or $330,000 in REAL MONEY. According to next-gen.biz, “Entropia allows users to convert real world finances to a virtual currency, offering a fixed exchange rate for users who choose to cash-out and convert their virtual currency back. Entropia’s in-game properties, therefore, have a real cash value.” Here is the blow-by-blow auction drama for Crystal Palace as posted on Entropia. Crystal Palace features include many docking ports for spaceships, as well as the four bio-domes (photo of bio-dome above) which contain various species of aliens. Not sure of the number of bathrooms and bedrooms, but it looks like there is quite a view.

    Why in the world is that virtual property sold in cash? Is there a special prize of some sort, or is it just an exercise in buying just for kicks?!

    I don’t believe this will be actually paid for. This is just like the Haiti relief where people pledged tons of money. These pledges ended up not being paid.
