Brighton Hall brings to our collection the eccentric grandeur of the Elizabethan era. In keeping with the collection itself, which is dedicated to light in the interiors of the houses, this tall, handsome structure features numerous large, rectangular windows. Three stories indicate nobility; the lofty tower rooms are strictly for show. The flat rooftops are perfect for surveying formal, patterned gardens and distant, verdant hills. Befitting the style, there is no attic, for the servants were housed separately from this quiet, secretive house.
A narrow staircase winding its way up through the house connects a maze of eight rooms, including two bedchambers, plus four rooftop terraces. Brighton Hall is constructed of solid pine, with a hand sculpted and painted faux-stone finish, and features leaded glass and stained glass windows hand made by Sue Veeder. Dimensions: 25" square base; 38" tall. Sold.
