A representative little villa with a very functional and family friendly layout. It will sleep at least four sims and can easily be adapted for more – without touching the floorplan, nine or ten sims could comfortably live here. The house sits on a 20x30 lot which is fully landscaped with a pool, outdoor sitting/dining/barbecue, covered terrace and balcony, driveways, a vegetable garden, and a play area for the children.
On the ground floor is an entrance, a small formal living room, a bathroom (toilet) and a formal-ish dining room with open kitchen – a 3x1 dining table would also fit in here, if six is not enough (see post #2 for an alternate layout). A larger family living room is in the basement, along with a full bath and an empty spare room; the upstairs floor has three bedrooms, a full bath, and a play area for the children with access to a large open balcony. On the top floor is a double bedroom with private bath.
1 x double bedroom
3 x single/twin bedroom (one of them a nursery)
4 x bathroom (one of them private)
1 x kitchen/dining
3 x living room
1 x spare room (empty)
Playtested with 5–8 sims plus guests for more than a sim week. See post #2 (first comment) for overview screenshots as well as an alternate layout for the ground floor (with an extra bathroom; might be useful if you have really many sims).
Even though this house is really compact, it is quite a bit larger than my other ones – I had to lower my settings in order to play without lag. I recommend you test how it performs before moving in your favourite family. (I have a relatively nice computer – 2.4GHz dual core, 4GB RAM, GeForce 8600M GT –; OTOH, looking at all the uber mansions on this site, I take it people tend to have better machines than I do. So it may not be an issue for you).
