FESTUS, MO (KPLR) - A former roller rink turned cave home is up for sale in Festus and buyers are lining up to bid on the home.

The cave home located at the 200 block of Cave Drive in Festus was built by William Sleeper with his own hands 10 years ago, but because of failing health and life changes he’s decided to sell.

The three-story cave home has 17,000 square feet, with four bedrooms, two baths, an aquaponics space and three chambers. It has a year-round temperature of 70 degrees, which will cut down energy bills.

Though it is an unusual home, Sleeper is looking to get good price for the home before he and his family move onto another adventure.

At last check the highest bid was $225,000. Adam's Auction's in Belleville is handling the sale of the home. Owners say bidders can bid online or call in to make the buy. The auction is expected to stay active through the end of the week.
