The Callahan House

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Formerly known as the Grey House, a very large double-sided vintage dollhouse that has been updated and expanded through the years. Loaded with character and ready for a new owner, this house started out ca. 1900 with just the center portion and gradually acquired two wings and a basement. There are now 14 rooms plus staircase halls in the upper part of the house which measures 45" H, 69" L and 34" D. A stand was made for it that incorporates three basement rooms including the famous furnace room and workshop. The base is 29" H , 72" L and 34" D. Together they make a grand impression. The open front and back were covered with acrylic panels; there are no architectural facades for them. Much of the interior decoration dates to the 1970's when it was featured in Nutshell News so there is ample present a great opportunity for redecorating! A great deal of this house's charm comes from its iconic American farmhouse vernacular exterior featuring classic grey clapboarding and Colonial Revival 8 over 1 sash windows. The rooms are spacious and can accommodate a lot of furnishings, and it has been well maintained.
