Unique Handmade Tudor Dollhouse C/w Remote Controlled Electrics, Signed & Dated For Sale

I AM SELLING ONE OF MY UNIQUE HANDBUILT TUDOR DOLLHOUSES, ALL OF WHICH ARE NUMBERED, DATED AND SIGNED ON THE BACK.

THE APPROX SIZE OF THE HOUSE IS 22"w x 21"d x 44"h

LAST YEAR IN MAY I BUILT A HOUSE ESPECIALLY TO BRING OVER TO DALLAS TO EXHIBIT AT THE TEXAS MINIATURE SHOWCASE WHICH I DID AND SOLD IT THERE. I DECIDED THEN THAT I WANTED TO DO THE SAME AGAIN THIS TYEAR WHICH IS WHY I DEVELOPED AND BUILT THIS HOUSE, THE MINSTREL GALLERY.

UNFORTUNATELY I HAVE BEEN PLANNING TO MOVE HOUSE AND WORKSHOP FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS AND IT IS ALL GOING TO HAPPEN OVER THE NEXT 6 WEEKS OR SO, WITH THIS IN MIND I HAVE DECIDED TO PUT BACK MY RETUIRN TO DALLAS UNTIL NEXT YEAR.

ONE OF THE MUCH ADMIRED AND MOST POPULAR FEATURES ON SOME OF MY LARGER HOUSES HAS BEEN THE GREAT HALL ROOM WHICH IS A DOUBLE HEIGHT ROOM ON THE TOP FLOOR WHICH OPENS UP INTO THE ROOF SPACE TO CREATE A WONDERFUL BANQUETING HALL. THE REASON I USUALLY ONLY INCLUDE THIS FEATURE ON LARGER HOUSES IS DUE TO THE FACT THAT IT TAKES UP THE SPACE OF 2 ROOMS AND THEREFORE ON A SMALLER HOUSE THERE WOULDN'T USUALLY BE ENOUGH ROOMS TO SATISFY PEOPLE, HENCE I STARTED TO THINK HOW I COULD OVERCOME THIS DILEMA.

THE RESULT HAS BEEN A HOUSE WHICH IS A VERY SPECIAL ONE AS IT IS THE FIRST HOUSE I HAVE BUILT, AND PROBABLY THE ONLY ONE EVER BUILT, THAT COMES WITH ALL THE PIECES YOU NEED TO BE ABLE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN 3 DIFFERENT FLOOR/ROOM LAYOUTS ON THE TOP FLOORS.

IT CAN BE USED AS A GREAT HALL FOR SETTING UP A BANQUETING OR ENTERTAINING SPACE, OR BY SLIDING A PIECE OF FULLY BOARDED AND FULLY BEAMED FLOOR SECTION ACROSS THE WIDTH OF THE GREAT HALL AT THE BACK OF THE ROOM, THEN STANDING A SECTION OF BALUSTRADING ON TOP OF IT FOLLOWED BY STANDING A VERTIACL LADDER STYLE STAIRCASE IN THE STAIRWELL OPENING, YOU HAVE A GREAT HALL COMPLETE WITH A MINSTREL GALLERY WITH PLENTY OF ROOM TO ACCESSORIZE WITH MUSICIANS/MINSTRELS AND THEIR INSTRUMENTS WHILST THE FESTIVITIES CONTINUE IN THE GREAT HALL BELOW.

THE MINSTREL GALLERY CAN BE REMOVED AND BY PLACING BEAMS ACROSS THE WIDTH OF THE ROOM AT THE CENTRE AND THE FRONT OF THE GREAT HALL, YOU CAN THEN POSITION 2 PIECES OF FULLY BOARDED AND FULLY BEAMED FLOOR PANELS INTO PLACE, ADD AN ADDITIONAL SET OF SLOPING STAIRS AND A FREE STANDING BALUSTRADE SECTION AROUND THE STAIRWELL OPENING AND YOU NOW HAVE 2 COMPLETELY SEPARATE ROOMS OVER 2 FLOORS.

IT ONLY TAKES A FEW MINUTES TO CHANGE BETWEEN THE VARIOUS OPTIONS SO YOU CAN CHANGE THEM AROUND AS OFTEN AS YOU WANT AS THE MOOD TAKES YOU.

ALL OF MY HOUSES COME WITH STANDARD FEATURES SUCH AS HAND CARVED ROOFS AND PAVING, ALONG WITH DETAILS SUCH AS TEXTURED LEADED LIGHT WINDOWS, STRUCTURAL PEGS TO THE OUTSIDE TIMBER FRAME JOINTS, HANDMADE SUPPORT AND DECORATIVE BRACKETS, HANGING SIGNS, AGED EXTERIOR WALLS, SOLID WOOD INDIVIDUAL INTERNAL FLOOR BOARDS COMPLETE WITH NAIL HOLES, AMONGST A HOST OF OTHER DETAILS. THERE ARE A TOTAL OF ABOUT 2500 INDIVIDUALLY HANDMADE PIECES USED TO MAKE THIS HOUSE.

IN ADDITION TO MY STANDARD FEATURES DETAILED ABOVE THIS HOUSE ALSO HAS MANY ADDITIONAL FEATURES BUILT INTO IT WHICH INCLUDE:

CAVITY WALL CONSTRUCTION WHICH I HAVE DEVELOPED TO ALLOW ME TO HIDE THE LIGHTING WIRES BETTER AND IN TURN ALLOW ME TO INSTALL WALL LIGHTS TO THE WALL OPPOSITE THE FIREPLACE WALL WHICH IS SOMETHING I DON'T USUALLY DO AS IT IS DIFFICULT TO HIDE THE WIRES. A SIDE BENEFIT OF THIS HAS BEEN THE MUCH INCREASED THICKNESS OF THE WALL AROUND THE INTERNAL WINDOW REVEAL THEREBY CREATING A MUCH WIDER WINDOW SILL FOR POSITIONING ORNAMENTS AND ACCESSORIES.

THIS HOUSE IS ALSO FULLY FINISHED ON THE BACK OF IT, COMPLETE WITH TIMBER BEAMS, PEGS, BRACKETS AND AGEING SO IT CAN BE VIEWED FROM 360 DEGREES.

PLATE RACK TO THE GROUND FLOOR ROOM, POT HANGING RAIL ABOVE OPEN FIREPLACE TO GROUND FLOOR COMPLETE WITH AN EXTRA LARGE FIREPLACE WITH A SPIT ROASTING PIG FIRE ALSO INCLUDE.

A WORKING FIRE TO THE 3 LOWER ROOMS, EXTRA LARGE, MEDIUM AND SMALL RESPECTIVELY.

EXCLUSIVE TO ME HANDMADE REAL STONE FIRE SURROUND TO THE GREAT HALL.

SOILID OAK WALL PANELLING TO THE GREAT HALL.

THE DOUBLE HEIGHT ACCESS PANEL TO THE GREAT HALL IS EXTREMELY DETAILED AND ORNATE WITH A 9 SECTION FEATURE WINDOW AND DECORATIVE BRACKETS AND IS ALSO FULLY FINISHED ON THE INSIDE WITH MATCHING SOLID OAK WALL PANELLING.

ONE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT EXTRAS BUILT INTO THIS HOUSE IS THE FULL REMOTE CONTROLLED ELECTRICAL SYSTEM WHICH GIVES YOU THE OPTION OF CONTROLLING THE LIGHTS ROOM BY ROOM, AND EVEN TURNING THE 3 FIRES ON ONE BY ONE. THERE ARE 3 DIFFERENT FORMS OF LIGHTING IN ROOF ROOM, A 3 ARM CHANDELIER, 2 WALL LIGHTS AND 2 HIGH LEVEL SEMI CONCEALED LIGHTS, ALL OF THESE CAN BE CONTROLLED SEPARATELY AND CAN BE USED IN ANY COMBINATION YOU WANT, SO YOU CAN HAVE THEM ALL ON, SOME ON OR NONE ON. ALL OF THE LIGHTS WORK INDEPENDENTLY EVEN WHEN YOU HAVE OPTED TO DIVIDE THE GREAT HALL INTO 2 SEPARATE ROOMS SO YOU CAN CONTROL EACH ROOM INDIVIDUALLY. THERE IS EVEN A DIMMING FUNCTION ON THE REMOTE.

I AM MOVING HOUSE AND WORKSHOP AND WOULD MUCH PREFER TO SHIP THE HOUSE TO A CUSTOMER THAN TO TAKE IT WITH ME SO THIS IS A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO BE ABLE TO BUY ONE OF MY LIMITED EDITION HANDBUILT HOUSES AT WELL BELOW IT'S TRUE VALUE. IF I WERE TO SELL THIS HOUSE AT A SHOW OR THROUGH A STORE IT WOULD RETAIL AT BETWEEN $7,000 AND $10,000 (PLEASE SEE MY HOUSE FOR SALE AT THE LITTLE DOLLHOUSE COMPANY STORE IN TORONTO, WHICH IS A SIMILAR HOUSE TO THE ONE I SOLD IN DALLAS LAST YEAR AND IS FOR SALE AT $14,999). I AM MORE THAN HAPPY FOR A STORE TO BUY THIS HOUSE TO RESALE IN THEIR STORE.

DUE TO 'S RULES I AM NOT ALLOWED TO DIRECT PEOPLE TO MY WEBSITE BUT HOPEFULLY I AM ALLOWED TO DIRECT THEM TO MY BLOG WHERE YOU WILL FIND LOTS MORE INFORMATION AND PHOTOS OF THE HOUSE. (kjdollshouses.blogspot.co.uk)

I AM ALSO HAPPY TO PROVIDE ANY INTERESTED PARTIES WITH ADDITIONAL INFORMATION BY WAY OF EMAILS IF REQUIRED.

THIS HOUSE IS GOING TO BE FEATURED IN A SERIES OF ARTICLES IN FORTHCOMING ISSUES OF DOLLHOUSE AND MINIATURE SCENE MAGAZINE LATER IN THE YEAR HERE IN THE UK.

THE PRICE I HAVE QUOTED FOR SHIPPING IS TO MAINLAND AMERICA AND INCLUDES INSURANCE BUT NO LOCAL TAXES THAT MAY BE DUE. FROM EXPERIENCE SHIPPING TO AMERICA THERE ARE NO TAXES DUE IF YOU ARE BUYING AS A US CITIZEN BUT YOU WOULD NEED TO MAKE SURE OF THIS.

WHEN SHIPPING MY HOUSES I BUILD A PURPOSE MADE CRATE AROUND THEM, THE HOUSE AND ACCESSORIES ARE WRAPPED IN BUBBLE WRAP AND THE CRATE IS FILLED WITH POLYSTYRENE PACKING BEADS BEFORE BEING SEALED.

I HAVE SHIPPED TO GERMANY, DENMARK, NORWAY, INDIA, CANADA AND AMERICA IN THE PAST AND THE ONLY MISHAP SO FAR HAS BEEN A BROKEN CHIMNEY SO THEY ARE VERY WELL PACKED.

IF THE WINNING offer EXCEEDS $8000 EXCLUDING SHIPPING I WILL TRAVEL OUT TO YOUR HOME IN AMERICA TO HELP UNPACK THE HOUSE, SET IT UP AND SHOW YOU HOW THE VARIOUS FLOORING OPTIONS SLOT INTO PLACE.
