Country Luxury is large (huge really) family home based on these house plans. I built this house in my full game so all expansions, stuff packs and some CC are required.
The basic version of the lot is completely unfurnished with the exception of a phone, alarms and outdoor lighting/landscaping. The furnished version uses a small amount of optional Buy Mode CC in addition to the Build Mode CC both lots use.
§124,809 Basic | §320,860 Furnished
6 Bedrooms & 6 Bathrooms
Side Facing Garage
Green House & Orchard
Sauna, Pool & Pond
Lights, Alarms & Phone
I playtested a copy of the lot with a family of 4 adults, 1 child/teenager, 2 babies/toddlers along with a dog and bird. When the babies were born I put cribs in the great room which worked out really well until they got older and moved upstairs permanently. Note: The lot does not have a good cut away view so you'll need to zoom in, out and rotate around the lot as you play. It's a huge house.
Landscaping: There is a lot of landscaping to tend to but I hired the butler and gardener both and they were able to keep up with it even in the Fall. If you fertilize and plant tomatoes in the green house as soon as you move in you can call for a Garden Club Membership and that's enough to be awarded the wishing well on the first day -- which looks super cute under the willow tree by the pond.
There were a few issues:
-The dark green/pink recolor on the Phlox shrub defaults back to the original light pink after the shrub is overgrown and trimmed. Use the design tool to change it back.
-The staircases are CC and not animated -- which turned out to be a good thing because it sped up the Sims movement around the house considerably.
-The wood stove in the great room is on a diagonal and Sims can't light the fire.
-The lot uses breadfruit trees which will catch fire and always burn. Remove them or download a mod/fix. I use Cyjon's .
Overall the lot played well and Sims autonomously used all of the areas of the house. Favorites places were the swings, the TV in the breakfast nook, the piano in the living room and the telescope upstairs. It's a fun house with a lot of room for all of the various rewards, work benches, hobbies, sports and activities that the full Sims 2 game has.
