A new expansion pack means new not-so-pretty EA homes to makeover! Lakeside Place is my version of the Jones-Brown house from Twinbook, a home close to the water at 4 Poker Flats Drive.

Consisting of 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (with an extra nursery for the little ones) the modern home is perfect for a well established family.

Although moderately priced at $97862 fully furnished ($56013 unfurnished), Lakeside Place comes with everything your Sims need to enjoy life, with perfect views to match.

Situated on a 30 x 20 lot the home is full of surprises, including the secluded and peaceful back garden, complete with waterfall.

Inspect today, and enjoy!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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.
