Victorian Times "Bee Tree House" for $70 in Ventura, CA. Seller does not list it as such. Part of me wants to tell him/her what they've got but that usually goes badly so they're on their own, lol.

Identifiable thanks to 1martinimomma posting the Victorian Times catalog. Thank you!

Maybe it’s the picture but I am ‘meh’ about it.

The bones are plain, but with some siding, landscaping, tasteful interior decorating, and the right scale of furnishings, it could be a little charmer.

Interesting idea from the Westville. Makes me wonder what happened to the rest of the house.

Looking at the photos of the interior, it's probably just as well we don't know...

For Victorian Times, this house is definitely the least of their offerings. I like the B&W picture of it finished that 1martinimomma posted from their catalog. I'd like to see it in color. Instead of clapboard siding and fancy shingles, though, I think it would make a wonderful stone cottage with simple trim.

I think it looks like the younger cooler cousin of the Pepperwood Farm dollhouse. Smaller, peppier. I like it all - love the front room that can be peered into.

I'm glad you mentioned the front rooms because I had meant to ask, does anyone know if the front or side walls for the kitchen and bathroom are hinged? How does one access those rooms? There are doors on the interior walls to those rooms, not big wide arches one could reach through. Seems odd to me.

EDIT: NEVER MIND! The floor plan in the catalog shows that it has side walls with windows in those rooms. In the photos the seller posted, you can just barely see asphalt through those front windows. It appears to be open on that side, but only for those two front rooms. That makes sense.

Interestingly, I love this house!  Well, not this house, but the plan and the potential. When the catalog was posted, I thought, "Well, great, there's another future house to build." :D I would make the front portion removable instead of having it open on the side.

 

Here's a fun one...colorwise.

I would keep it attached but hinge the roof on the bathroom and do a removable panel or hinged side on the other side. I really do like this - now I want one in 1:48 scale!

@Elsbeth :roflmao:

The artist was probably affected by the plastic resins in the doll making process...or he/she has never seen human eyes?

This is a beautifully built and decorated dollhouse (can't say which dollhouse it is), but fetching 10G it's going to be up the hill....https://chicago.craigslist.org/nwi/clt/d/dennison-fabulous-miniature-doolhouse/6961602036.html

it is beautiful but for $10k at least finish the brick papering on the back end.

The construction reminds me of Dura-Craft, so that foundation might be Majik Brik, and you're right; for $10K they should have finished the brickwork.  And everything's glued down for ease of moving", so if the buyer wants to play with it, forget it.

Yep - "everything is glued down" for safe shipping. Except the brick paper. 

I wonder if it is a "I'll only part with it for 10k" (knowing they will probably keep it forever) or if they really think someone will buy it for that. Hmmm. Good luck to them!

Someone in Indiana could get a deal on a built Beacon Hill at shopgoodwill.com (I can't seem to copy the link on my phone)...no bids yet at $21.

Here's the link https://www.shopgoodwill.com/Item/74909158

It has some tapewire too. 

But, if you build a beacon and don't paint/wallpaper the stairway entry area...then I think $21 is about right, lol. That staircase is so hard to decorate once it is in!!

But yes if I saw that at my goodWill shop I'd have bought it.

It's just built, no decoration whatsoever.  For $21 I'd take it all apart and rebuild it, decorating as I go.
