I'm opening the box today on Battlefront's 10-15mm scale Antwerp House, one of the European House range.

Antwerp House

The pre-painted building comes in a thin cardboard box with thick protective cardboard insert, with three resin parts wrapped in bubblewrap.

Antwerp House

The two-story house has a front door and a side door, shuttered windows, and a chimney. It's roughly 80mm wide by 65mm deep, almost 120mm tall, and can hold two Flames of War medium bases per floor.

The roof is a separate piece…

…as is the second story.

The interiors have the windows and doors molded into the walls, but everything is painted black…

…except the floors.

The roof front has some 'wrinkles' that look a little odd. The painting on my sample is almost flawless, except for the silver trim on the chimney top:

My sample has a slight fit problem, leaving a gap between the roof and the second story:

Since the roof fits tightly if I place it on the first story (see below), I assume the problem is with the second-story piece, though I can't spot what the fit problem is. The problem is minor, and pretty much invisible from the angles you would view the building from on the tabletop.

This is another robust option for your WWII urban terrain.
