Georgian Manor
"This is truly classical, Georgian design at its best. Some of the exterior highlights of this two-story include the pediment gable, the beautifully proportioned columns, the front door detailing and the window treatment. These are just some of the features which make this design so unique and appealing. Behind the facade of this design is an equally elegant interior. Imagine greeting your guests in the large receiving hall. It is graced by two curving staircases and opens to the formal living and dining rooms. Beyond the living room is the study; with access to the rear terrace. Those large, festive occasions for family get-togethers or formal entertaining will be enjoyed in the spacious ballroom. It has a centered fireplace flanked by windows on each side, access to the terrace and a wet bar. Your appreciation for this room will be never-ending..."
- said the architectural digest reporter in his review of this property.



This is pretty much the first house I've built that actually followed the suggested blueprints. 'Course I added a few little simified 'surprises' like the attic space over the garage is a game room, and the crawl space surrounding the foyer's domed ceiling makes a great master's retreat/hideout/secret lab. The service entrance is supposed to house a laundry with a small 'staff' bathroom tucked in the corner; but I didn't care for that - instead I added a powder room in the corner of the ballroom.

I worked for ever on those stairs, I'm still not happy with them - I wanted real curved staircases (both sides) and have them be open underneath. Oh, I also wanted them next to the wall. LOL! Right. Not in this game. I learned a lot about stairs and levels, and in the end, chose to live with this solution - until I learn how to mesh myself and defy those blasted Maxian 'levels'.

This lot has been play-tested even though it is unfurnished. My testers could walk everywhere, open and close all doors, use every potty, etc... I used Numenor's invaluable AnyGameStarter to build this mansion. The only required expansions are NL, OFB, and M&G. Please check out the floor plan pictures below - I labeled each of the rooms so your Sims won't get lost LOL!



MAIN FEATURES:
  • Lot size: 30X50 (3X5).
  • About 4,401 sq ft covered living space - 4 bedroom, 4 bath, living and dining rooms, formal foyer, library, study/office, ballroom, kitchen, game room, secret lab, service entrance, backyard terrace, and maze with center fountain
  • Around $196,489 simoleons - I say "around" because I have extensively re-organized my build/buy catalogues and, in doing so, re-priced most everything. I don't know if this will effect the cost in your game or not. If it does, maybe your Sims qualify for a huge tax break? Inheritance? Or, it's their turn to win the lottery?
  • Unfurnished - Energy efficient appliances and fixtures, with interior/exterior finishings to make your Sim's new house feel like home.
  • Quality all copper plumbing.
  • Wiring/cable has been upgraded to smart-house technology - complete with a thought-control light system. You can now turn on/off a single light or all the lights in the house with just one thought!
  • Need a pizza for the moving crew? The Phone is installed and ready.
  • Invisible/stealth Alarm systems included (for both fire and burglar)
  • Beautiful solid wood panelling found throughout the house.
  • An opulent color scheme with textured ceilings in every room
  • Lush Karastan wall-to-wall wool carpets
  • Gleaming hardwood parquet in the kitchen and ballroom
  • Highly polished Italian marble in the foyer, both on the floor and overhead in an impressive domed marble and gold ceiling.
  • Not one, not two, but four 2-story Crystal Chandeliers illuminate the domed foyer ceiling
  • Two exquisite Fireplaces - the one in the ballroom is carved alabaster imported from Turkey
  • Take the single person elevator from the garage up to the game room
  • The game room is furnished with a card table, chessboard, darts, a disco ball, and a home-theatre surround sound karaoke machine.
  • From the Master Suite take another single person elevator up to your own private laboratory
  • The game room is also accessible via a secret door in the Master's closet.
  • Imagine the parties you could throw in that beautifully appointed ballroom (complete with wet bar)
  • ...And the cool, refreshing night air out on the terrace between dances. Ahhhhh *sigh*
  • The grounds feature mature landscaping and a well manicured lawn with a delightful hedge maze.
  • In the center of the maze you'll discover a splash-pad fountain and a couple of benches to relax upon.

The EXTRAs file - includes things NOT in the main file, but that are needed for this house to work.

And/or they are things from Creators without a current web presence (At least, none that I could find) The items are listed in with the other CC below.
