For my first Sims 3 post I decided to upload my legacy family's home. I gradually built it through 2 generations while the founder Sim (Stella Rice) earned more money and advanced in her career, she was a chef so this house features a large kitchen with a bar and a garden where she grew the vegetables and fruits for her cooking.

The house is quite big with a study and a TV-room which both can be converted to a bedroom easily, making it a 5 bedroom home perfect for large families. It's decorated with very classical and sophisticated furnishings following a blue and white colour palette that is used throughout the house, especially in the living room, kitchen and dinning room. The master bedroom features its own balcony and an ensuite bathroom with a walk-in closet. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom and are furnished for three male teenage sims (but you can easily change the colours for female sims ). In the first floor there's a bathroom for visitors and a laundry room.

The backyard is very large and has a big pool with a water slide, hot-tub, bar, garden, basketball court and a BBQ area; making it perfect for throwing awesome pool parties!

I recommend placing it in a corner lot because the driveway for the two cars is on the right side of the lot. I tried to use the least amount of EPs, I think that University Life and Showtime are the only ones necessary for maintaining the main aesthetic of the house and Ambitions for the laundry room.

I hope you enjoy it!

Lot Size: 30x40
Lot Price (furnished): $206,184
Lot Price (unfurnished): $93,693

Edit: The Rim Rockin' Basketball Hoop on the backyard is Store Content! I forgot to provide a link if you want to add it to your game, here it is:
Key: - File was updated after upload was posted
Filename - Tip: You can click the magnifying glass to see the archive contents Size Downloads Date
Ricewood Lane 3BR 3BA.rar 2.63 MB 3,283 3rd Jun 2015
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.
