New dolls’ house: Le Château – The essence of life in France!

January 25th, 2012

The Dolls House Emporium‘s new house for spring 2012 is this stylish French Château.

The Château is modelled on the elegance of 18th Century France and has been carefully researched to ensure every last detail is authentic, from the characteristic slope of the roof to its ornate upper windows.

Le Chateau Dolls House Emporium

Dolls House Emporium designers have been working on images and including features inspired by true continental palaces and manor houses from the period to give this dolls’ house version the authentic flavour of France.

Launching in February, The Château is set to be a big hit with romantics everywhere and is definitely something to fall in love with!

With an elegant sweeping stairway leading to the grand balcony running the full length of the frontage, this latest 1:12 scale model will surely fire the imagination of miniatures fans. Could it be the home of a nobleman? Would it be a divine lovers’ retreat? Or a top-class wine-country hotel for quintessential Englishmen travelling across the continent? The choice is yours!

Historically, a château was built as the badge of a family of nobles or French citizens of rank, the Loire Valley being as popular spot, where there are more than 300.

To complement its grandeur, there is a range of associated accessories available through The Dolls House Emporium, including the beautiful new hand-painted French armoire cabinet and a Louis XV sofa. There is also a French-style console table, a ‘buffet’ sideboard and an upholstered single bed, all in classical cream.

Or you could pack it with contemporary items hand-picked from the 2,500-strong range available.

The Château is available in a range of finishes, which means that enthusiasts can do as much – or as little – work as they would like to bring it to life. With nine rooms, the stylish, front-opening house is a blank canvas waiting for someone to put their mark on it!

Le Château features:

• Six well-proportioned rooms on three floors;
• One opening front panel;
• Hinged roof for access to the top floor;
• Authentic steep-pitched roof in the provincial style;
• Carved ‘stone’ dormer windows faithful to the French style;
• Typical corner stone and roof detailing;
• Five beautiful opening French doors featuring pretty balconies on the first floor;
• Intricate front entrance door opening into the impressive hallway;
• Exquisitely-detailed internal doors;
• Dog-leg stairs with ‘wrought iron’ railings and wooden posts;
• All windows and doors are pre-assembled;
• Le Château is packed in two boxes.

Le Château Basement:

Offers a further two rooms;
• Stairs link seamlessly to the main house;
• Supplied with extra railings for optional use on the main house ground floor doors;
• Impressive curved staircase with authentic balustrades leads to the main entrance;
• Two French doors for access to the gardens;
• All windows and doors are pre-assembled;
• Le Château Basement is packed in one box.

  1. [...] not as yellow as the scan would suggest – the walls are a sandy stone colour, just the real thing. Take a look at the official blurb here and you'll see how it mimics the finish of a chateau of the period! Thank you for your feedback! [...]


  2. it just the Manor house in adifferent guise! Not very inspiring!

  3. teresa shears Says:


    nice but not one that i would want


  4. What a beautiful house. The small details are what really make this stunning, just a fabulous job!


  5. Nice house. Some lovely features however the price would have to be a really good one for me to buy it as I have one similar.
    May be I will wait until DHE has a deal on both house and basement.

    what a wonderful looking dolls house fell in love with it straight away.


  7. Lovely shaped roof and like the railings but you would have to buy the basement for it to look nice be nothing without it.


  8. not impressed,not for me either I was hopeing for something a bit special, this looks too much like some your other houses with just a bit of adjustment having been made to it.


  9. Nice looking, would prefer 3 floors, attic and basement. Can we see the front of the basement without the front stairs please?
