A rare opportunity for a serious collector to buy a
Museum quality dollhouse.
The basis for this unique house was an assembled model Lady Ashley by House That Jack Built. The project was conceptualized by an interior designer with a Victorian theme in mind. The original purpose for the project was the intent to show prospective customers the style, craftsmanship, and flexibility of house- and room designs.
This three-story house has full 10" ceiling heights and is made from quality 3 and 5 ply 3/8" cabinet grade plywood that is mill-cut. It also has pre-milled clapboard finish on all outside walls. The dimensions are 26” wide, 19 ½” deep, and 33 ½” height. Included is a custom made turntable which lets the house rotate 360°.
There are 7 rooms in the house, including the attic and a tower. The first floor has a living room and a dining room including a detailed kitchen section. On the second floor are a staircase-landing hallway, the bathroom, and a master bedroom. The third floor (attic) joins the second bedroom with a seating area and access to the tower.
The windows are from Houseworks, double hung and fully functionally. There are split doors (with six panels each and brass knobs) in every room. The floors are stained, varnished, and polished to a high-gloss. Each room has base boards and crown moldings, and, similar to the window frames and door casings, stained and varnished.
The house has a custom designed back wall, hinged on both sides and split along the room dividers for easy access to all rooms. There is also a hinged cover for the attic. A bay window on the side of the house provides a view of the staircase.
All walls (including the back walls) are decorated with period wall papers in different color schemes. The ceilings are covered with “acoustic” style material.
The house is fully electrified with standard components from Cir-Kit, providing brass ceiling lights, sconces, and additional outlets for more freestanding lamps (or seasonal decorations) in each room. This includes also a functioning porch light. Most light fixtures are enhanced with genuine Swarovski crystals. The lighting can be dimmed for different ambient moods.
The furniture collection is very unique. Almost all pieces are made by Bespaq in the style of Queen Ann and Chippendale. Many items are no longer available. Other items in the house are unique custom made rugs, trinkets, candle holders, clocks, fine porcelain dishes, silverware, kitchen utensils, and more.
