Collectors' Upgrades

Collectors' Upgrades are a range of additional cost options available as a way of further enhancing our standard packages. These include features such as hand marbled staircases, window seats, recessed alcoves and a library.

Bespoke dolls houses

We are always pleased to hear from customers who want a completely bespoke dolls house designed and built ("custom doll house" in the US) as these are usually challenging and enjoyable to design and execute. We have built dolls houses inspired by real properties from a variety of periods.

If you would like to discuss a bespoke project please call or email us.

DIY houses

We are often asked if our houses are available as kits for customers to build themselves - they are not. Our designs do not lend themselves to being offered in kit form and are only available as fully finished houses.


All our dolls houses are hand built to to order. We usually have a waiting list which can typically be between 12 and 18 months. Prices for our standard Georgian Dolls Houses are shown on the Prices page.
