At first glance, Sunshine's Sanctuary appears deceptively small, but the house has more than enough room for a family of five. Situated on the docks in Lucky Palms, this sleek, modern home was designed to take advantage of the spectacular desert views, and the architecture fits in nicely with the town's contemporary vibe. Let your Sims soak up some of that warm desert sunshine on the large second floor deck or cool off inside while enjoying the wonderful scenery through walls of glass windows.
Originally built for my legacy family, the name is inspired by my heir. One of her friends always calls her "Sunshine" in my story and since this house will be her home (once she can afford it), I thought it was fitting.
The dining room opens up to the kitchen, but the living room/TV room is separated by the stairs. This house is very playable, with plenty of elbow room for your Sims to maneuver around and plenty of space for customization. I left the study purposely generic so it can function as any number of things (an extra bedroom, an art studio, etc).
The house maintains a rich, yet chic color scheme throughout the downstairs that extends into the master bedroom upstairs. My heir likes purple, so that's the color I chose to decorate with.
There is a small nursery at the front of the house and a slightly larger kids' room right next to it. I figure that once the baby (or babies) grow older, the nursery can easily be converted into an additional bedroom.
