The Old Estate

Hi folks,
today I present you The Old Estate.
Took me a lot of time to find matching colors and textures, but in the end, I think I made it.
Hope you like it!
Have fun!!!

Details:
Expansion Pack 1 (world adventures) required
Saved with game version 2.6.11.005
Size: 60x60
Furnished: 408,110
Unfurnished: 232,788

Inside:

Painting rooms, wine cellar, large hallways / relax areas,
many bath rooms, enough bedrooms for large families (2 double, 2 single),
kids bedroom, kids playroom, kitchen, dining room, living room, arboretum,
training room, roof terrace, some empty rooms to store stuff from your adventures

Outside:
Swing, green house, pavilion, bbq, moth, butterflies,
3 parking lots (5 more, find them), old vineyard,
pond with frogs, mystic stone circle (transporter), pool, stones, seeds

Hint:
When you place the lot in your world, have a close look at the ground painting,.. if you feel it doesn't look right, then please turn the lot around before placing! That's a general problem when placing lots with ground paint, it has nothing to do with my lot.





yeah I used a lot of EA store stuff, BUT most of it is just decoration ,
I would suggest two things, the Banner and the large door.

Buy:
Castle Double Door I by Castle Kits, Inc.: 100 SimPoints (also part of The Complete Castle by Castle Kits, Inc set)
http://store.thesims3.com/productDe...emale&startAt=0

The Banner of the Bold: 25 SimPoints (also part of the Full Interior Castle Set)
http://store.thesims3.com/productDe...male&startAt=60

Anything else is decoration and has default replacements (hope so):

The tower top: Seems it's included in the The Complete Castle by Castle Kits, Inc. If you don't have the castle outdoor set, don't panic, I have constructed a normal pointy roof beneath, the only thing you have to do is, delete the default replacement.
