The “Sculptured House” that appeared in Woody Allen’s 1973 futuristic comedy, SLEEPER may be facing foreclosure. Check out the 12 amazing photos of this spectacular Colorado home via the url below. Wouldn’t this make a nice annex for all the kitsch that won’t fit in Allee Willis’s current Wonderland home? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/07/08/sleeper-house-from-1973-w_n_640219.html#s111919

    This is what makes me ill about my obsession to work for creative freedom instead of money. If I had all the coin that selling 50 million records, writing a hit musical and doing everything else I do should have earned me I’d buy this so fast time would stand still. Although I rarely travel unless it’s a destination I can get to by car within six hours I would give anything to own this. I couldn’t even focus on the movie when I saw it because all I wanted to see were shots of this home.

    I’m not at all surprised that someone who made their money during the tech boom bubble of the late 90’s bought this house and can’t keep up the payments. There were so many people taking advantage of the stupidity and na√Øvet√© of companies who were funding idiotic technology because they were also afraid of being left out of the digital revolution. Anyone with an actual brain and a modicum of morality would still be making money because they’d still be designing good technology. I hope someone deserving gets this house as opposed to someone who just got a lot of fast cash.

    I completely agree. I’ve driven by the house literally thousands of times over the years because I live near it.

    The last owner actually put millions into it to make it habitable. So someone will now not only get a work of art but a functional one.

    Also called the “clamshell house,” the open side faces the east to Denver, and the closed sleak side faces the continental divide to the west. It is visible on the south side of I-70 just west of Golden.

    Maybe Diane Keaton will buy it and preserve it!
