Thank you so much everyone for your lovely comments. It is a real honour to do this thread. The time consuming and effort is all worth it! It feels very good to share this knowledge with everyone.

DHE is also being helpful. They have added a few more past discontinued houses before 1999 in the poll which I didn't know about and also made it a 'Sticky thread'. Thank you so much for your help.

The Lutyens Dolls' Housse has six rooms and a magnificent reception hall with 'wood panelling' a fireplace reminiscent of the one in the dining room at Goddards, and a gallery landing. The snug has an inglenook fireplace and the main bedroom has built-in cupboards and fireplace, also inpired by those at Goddards. Miniature replicas of Lutyens furniture have been reproduce including (perhaps mos charming of all) his beautiful out door bench which can be seen a the front of the house.

Overall Size (W x D x H): 858 x 700 x 730mm
Largest Room : 360 x 500 x 205mm
Number of Rooms: Six plus entrance hall
Approximate construction Time: 10hours
Weight when built: 39kg

What a fantastic thread Rebecca, it's been a super interesting read to pass the time away while I'm at work. (pro's of being a hotel receptionist! )

I <3 Lutyens.
Please bring Lutyens back DHE.
And The Market Cross.
My heart truly lays with these two houses, I just love them.
