Chances are, you’ve never seen anything like this: the Astolat Dollhouse Castle.
When you think of dollhouses, you probably think back to something you had as a kid. Maybe you had a Victorian-era model with beautiful sloping roofs, or perhaps you had a more traditional two-story house — the kind you might see in your neighborhood. Chances are, however, you’ve never seen anything like this: the Astolat Dollhouse Castle.
This magnificent, opulent dollhouse is 5′ tall, weighs more than 800 lbs and is valued at $8.5 million! It contains over 29 rooms, took two years to engineer and more than 12 years to build. Features include 29 rooms, a miniature grand piano worth more than $7,000, a drop leaf desk valued at more than $5,000, a mini 1949 Jeep station Wagon at nearly $3,500, and a hand-painted portrait worth $1,840! And now for the first time ever, the dollhouse is going on tour and will be open to the public this holiday season, with proceeds benefiting children’s charities.
