Real-life, million-dollar ‘dollhouses’ for sale

Three very unique houses in Australia that look like a ‘doll’s house’ have hit the market.

With their colonial-style facade, striking front door, angular roof, comfortable rooms and warm color palette, you’d be wrong to think these mansions are just a dream.

Brimming with charm and character, Colonial properties quickly became the norm in architecture after they were introduced by European settlers to the United States in the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries.

Colonial houses have their own trademark style. Think of a box-like square shape, occupying two or more levels, with a gable roof.

The facade is typically wooden, adding to its charm, or earthier with brick or stone.
