A unique Tudor style 1/12 scale dolls house crafted by Kevin Jackson
This charming Tudor house has been fashioned and crafted from within the workshops and studios of Kevin Jackson.
A dwelling close to the estuary in the sleepy village of Instow in North Devon was the inspiration for this wonderful 1/12 scale dollhouse.
We are very proud to be commissioned to sell this delightful 1/12 scale Tudor property by master miniature craftsman Kevin Jackson.
Kevin specializes in Tudor period dolls houses, this is number 52 in his collection and is signed on the back by the artisan himself.Kevin Jackson

Instow Cottage is the 52nd dolls house from Kevin Jackson, a one off creation which will never be repeated.
This is an opportunity to own this bespoke dolls house.
A unique investment which will only increase in value.
Kevin has replicated the original Tudor building techniques by indivually cutting, drilling and fixing timber pegs into positions where the structural joints would have occured.
The table is set for a fine banquet.
The furniture along with the plates and cutlery are included with this property.
Each individual floorboard is handmade and fitted into place separately. For realism, the floorboards have joints carefully cut into them with nail holes at either side of the joints.
Each individual beam is also hand crafted and treated to look old and realistic.
