Palatial dollhouse?

Welcome to Astolat Castle. It took 13 years for Elaine Diehl, a celebrated miniature artist, to build the 9- foot-tall dollhouse, now appraised at $8.5M. Located in New York City, it offers loads of luxury: a many-volume library, working lights, parquet floors, a marble bathroom with real t.p., and micro-taxidermy for wee hipsters. Even real liquor in tiny bottles!    *   —Diane Richard, writer, November 18*
