Inspired by the beaches of South Carolina, this mansion includes 5 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms spanning 3 complete floors and a garage level.

The house features wrap-around porches, a screened in porch, turreted roofs, grand staircase, 2 car garage, and an ample poolside area.

Amenities include: game room, pool, sauna, office, study, and exercise room.
Estimated square footage: 9,000 ft. sq.

I built this house over the course of the last year. It's the largest house I've ever built (it takes a Sim 30 minutes to reach the top floor). There are 3 custom staircases that cause wonky building physics, but the staircases are all functional. I have tried to make them look as natural as possible. The garage is built into the foundation of the building. Most expansion pack and custom content (outlined below) are decorative and should not cause too many problems. The windows from QBUILDERZ, The Regal Sim, and HugeLunatic, lemoncandy's glass door, and the DIY curtain set from chasmchronical are all required. I've had a lot of fun building this house and I hope you enjoy it!


Lot Size: 60x60
Lot Price: $365,021 furnished, $224,132 unfurnished

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
