One of a kind doll house built by my Great grandfather. This doll house was built in the 1970's for his adult daughter (my grandmother) who was studying interior design at the NY School of Interior Design. My Great grandfather towards the end of his career gave many hours/days/months to this doll house. The father/daughter bond of building and decorating this doll house was a wonderful family past-time for all to be enjoyed.
I also enjoyed this doll house by learning about the past era's and history of time gone by. I would like to pass it to a new family that can appreciate it and love it again. The doll house is approximately 8 feet long and extra-wide.It will need a home with french doors as it is over the standard width of most doorways. Overall measurements : 74 inches long, 29 inches high and 27 inches wide. The width of the porch, makes it unable to fit through the normal width doorways. The material of wood is -oak floors. The roof of the house is removable for easier transport as it is a heavy wooden doll house.
The doll house has 13 rooms and "outdoor" space, terraces and a huge front porch. I do have the stairs to the front porch which had been accidently knocked off in transport. The doll house did have working lights at one time, a very old system that should be replaced.Please contact me with any questions. The condition is good but it needs some TLC and I have some extra pieces to go with the home, for example a chimney and the front stairs.
This doll house was everything to me as a child. But it needs a new home. The scale would be 1:12.I can arrange transport of the dollhouse if you live in NJ or metropolitan area. The item "HANDMADE COLONIAL DOLL HOUSE" is in sale since Monday, March 29, 2021.
