The so-called Sculptured House featured in the Woody Allen 1973 movie "Sleeper" is facing possible foreclosure.A foreclosure filing was made against the home in June by Bayview Loan Servicing LLC, as the mortgage lenders trustee, according to the Denver Business Journal.The newspaper reported the house is owned by Denver businessman Michael Dunahay, who has a $3.13 million mortgage on it. Dunahay still owes $2.77 million of that amount, according to the foreclosure filing.The Business Journal also reported that Bayview previously initiated foreclosure action against the house in early 2009, but withdrew it last May.Architect Charles Deaton designed and built the home in 1963. The original structure had five stories and was all about the curves.By 2002, the house had been expanded to more than 7,000 square feet in a design created by Deaton's daughter and son-in-law."It's called curve-a-linear -- there are no straight walls. It's actually 7,600 ... we call it round feet, not square feet," Rollie Jordan of the real estate company Kentwood Company told 7NEWS in 2002.
