I'm having a CRAZY CLEAROUT in an attempt to de-clutter. I've bought too many of practically everything! I have expensive taste and this includes a hoard of designer bags and other items. Some have never been used/worn; others maybe just a handful of times. Decision is made - many must go!
I hope to list all types of things over the next couple of months so please do put me on watch if you think you might like my style. I'm sure there will be BARGAINS TO BE HAD.You may find you can complete your gift list as well as your own ticklist. Details on back confirm this. This is an absolutely fabulous Dolls House Miniature made by Trevor and highly regarded artisan Sue Cook. Is so stylish and oozes quality. A REALLY ATTRACTIVE & UNIQUE HOUSE. As you would expect from Sue Cook, all the detail - plasterwork etc is really finely finished. This is way above your average dolls house design.
Very high quality house made skilled craftsmen. In 12 th scale It is finished in a rich cream colour with white accents.
You can see the distinctive plasterwork made by Sue Cook for which she is well respected. The wealth of windows is such a complimentary feature.
There are 6 rooms in total plus a small stairway & landing. The roof is a tiled effect - not paper.
The Villa is featured in a dolls house magazine but I'm not able to locate it right now. Inside most rooms have been wallpapered.
There are 4 Sue Cook fireplaces of which 2 have an art nouveau look to them. The floorboard in the middle room at the top is very slightly raised to allow access to the wiring for the light below. Most of the lights are the plug-in type - set into the ceilings or on the walls.This house is in overall excellent condition in my opinion. Although used, it would surely pass as new even for perfectionists like me. It is in walk in condition though would be simple, if preferred to change the colour scheme or refresh. The house is approximately 38 inches wide by 18 1/2 inches deep by about 35 inches tall. The chimney can be removed to make it easier to transport by reducing height by 4 to 5 inches.
The house is classically designed so its versatility can be used in the choice or mix of eras. The rooms are easy to adapt to different uses so you can create your own layout or even have a change around when the mood takes you. I have furnished each of the downstairs rooms as a lounge at times for a different look. Depth 16", width 9.25" x height 9. Depth 16" x width 12" x height 9 ; top right.

Has stunning, wonderful character and IS A RELUCTANT SALE! INCLUDES ALL LIGHTING as previously described which have been checked to show all working.
There are individual switches for lights. At least one room has a spare socket too.
You will need a transformer to operate the lights etc. Any furniture shown is not included but just for demonstration (before I removed what I had started as the latest set up - was incomplete). Interior is accessed via 2 front opening doors.
The windows and frames are beautiful. There are windows on each side too.The glass is so lifelike and has the added effect of being able to see inside the house and through to the side window giving it another dimension. THE HOUSE IS REALLY ATTRACTIVE EVEN WHEN NOT IN USE - WITH OR WITHOUT LIGHTS ON. I adore this house and it pains me to list but, having been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, I have decided I must part with many of my treasures rather than leave them for others to sort out. It would be nice to see them go to a home where they can be loved & enjoyed. I have too many houses and limited energy so they are feeling a little neglected!
The time has come to let them go! There will be more houses to come including a couple that would suit enthusiasts who like the challenge of decorating and maybe changing some carpets. Also many excess pieces of furniture and dolls, most of which have never been used.
A lot of this has been created by artisans but also lots of "starter pieces". It will just take time to make decisions. Please ensure you have enough space to fit the house into your transport.
(or will pack up carefully if you wish to use a courier service but this would be at your risk). I CAN PASS ON THE DETAILS OF SOMEONE WHO HAS HELPED IN THE PAST AND BEEN VERY CAREFUL & REASONABLY PRICED plus another courier who has recently been recommended to me as very reasonably priced & good at his work - used to transporting dolls houses with the care needed. I have used the service of Shiply in the past to find a suitable courier at the right price.I would advise checking with potential couriers that they will treat the house & contents with care because I cannot be held responsible for the house once it has left the premises. If you wish to see any particular part of the house and have Whatsapp, please contact me on 07973 10 20 12 & I will photograph it for you. Any observations are in my opinion & so could be open to interpretation but I strive to give an honest & full description.
I declare even the slightest deviation for storefresh as I like my buyers to know what to expect and not be greeted by any unpleasant surprises. I check my items thoroughly when listing and disclose even the slightest variation from new. I offer this only because I KNOW that all of my items are AUTHENTIC. I have a good reputation & wish to keep it that way.In the event of any dispute, please contact me in the first instance.
