Do you dream of a beautiful place? A place worthy enough to host glamorous events, yet humble enough to call home?
This is it! The stunning Vandersim Estate could be yours!



This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity - real estate of this caliber doesn't come up every day! Not only is this a wonderful place to live, but also a wonderful place to work! The house is move-in ready; all upgrades and necessities are already in place. Your kids will thoroughly enjoy the attic playroom, spacious bedrooms, and beautiful ocean views. Hire a servant to help with daily chores, and open your doors to the public. This is a turn-key business.
Move in, live your dream, and turn a profit!



This lot is designed to be run as a home business. There are doors that can be locked to keep the riff-raff out of the family silver.
The public areas are the ballroom level, wedding pavilion, and pool/patio areas. In these areas you will find several bars, and bathrooms (with showers), a grill, sauna, pool, two telephones, a DJ booth, a chess table, and lots of seating. There is also the Wedding Arch with seating for an audience in the pavilion.

There is no open/closed business sign, nor is there a cash register anywhere. I was thinking of using BoilingOil's SS Auto Cash Register which will inconspicuously charge guests as they walk by. Heh, heh, he...


PLEASE NOTE: This is a sloped lot with a steep drop off at the back. It was built specifically to go on Belladonna Cove's "Affluent Ridge".




Required and NOT included: (You will have to "go shopping" for these - just follow the links )
>Numenor's Unlevel Wall - #90 here on MTS2. Without it, the doorways on the bottom level (near the sauna) will have big empty cut-outs in the walls over them.
>The Sweeping Staircase without middle rail by HugeLunatic at Sims2Artists.
>HugeLunatic also made the basegame Art Nouveau Modular Stairs recolorable and open underneath - you will need both versions for this lot.
>Plus, another HugeLunatic improvement - the OFB Storybook Stairs - made recolorable too!
>The front gardens have inaccessible plants. So, I suggest Perfect Plants or Perfect Gardens from Simbology.
>And, if you don't have this already, I would strongly suggest getting the Ceiling Light FIX by Menaceman44 @ MTS2
