Wadsworth Manor is a composite of houses which the client admired while traveling in the Cotswolds in the United Kingdom. The floor plans are original, developed by Mark Turpin in collaboration with the collector. The design scales to represent over 3,500 square feet of living space. Sandra Young completed the exterior and the beautifully decorated interior. Wadsworth Manor was Miniature Collector's cover story in October 2013. Tammy Fraley of Fraley Photography captured the finished house in the photo images below. Wadsworth Manor was also shown in the March 2007 issue of Dollhouse and Miniature Scene magazine in the UK.

Three fireplaces warm the interior of this inviting house.

The back of the house includes a service entrance to the hallway next to the kitchen, with a small balcony above, off the bedroom hallway. The walls of Wadsworth Manor are removable on three sides for easy access to all rooms.
