Welcome to Trenton Heights, good sirs and madams. Let your footmen bother with the baggage, won't you join us for a cup of nectar in the parlor, or perhaps a walk around the pond?

I've played the Sims for close to ten years, and have enjoyed the building and design aspects very much. This estate, while being my first upload, is the culmination of years of practice, so hopefully it will meet the standards of this community.

Trenton Heights is a massive (60x60) estate designed for temperate environs, with breadfruit, willow, and bay trees on the grounds and a tidy flower garden around the perimeter of the house. It does not have a functioning driveway (or a helipad), but for a family rich enough to live here, they probably have little need to leave it and mingle with the common rabble anyways. The house is designed in the Beaux Arts style of the early 20th century; although it is not fashioned on any specific real-life building, I did use the concept of Long Island's "Gold Coast" mansions as inspiration. These huge estates were built by industrial barons and well-known dynasties like the Rockefellers and Carnegies in the days before income tax; they were designed to be American chateaux and castles, with no expense spared and the intent that they would last for generations. The mansion has four floors of rooms, which I will briefly detail below.

  • 12 standard bedrooms
  • 8 standard bathrooms
  • Mother-in-law apartment with kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom
  • Vampire lair, complete with kitchen and bathroom
  • 2 standard kitchens
  • Outdoor kitchen
  • 2 "mini kitchens" with mini-fridge and microwave
  • Full gym/spa
  • Two story library
  • 2 lane bowling alley
  • Arcade
  • Dance club
  • 2 secure rooms, perfect for hiding loot
  • Prison cell
  • 4 storage rooms in the attic
  • Several secret passages

Beyond that, there are the typical rooms one would expect of a mansion of this size: a ballroom, dining room, parlor, multiple sitting rooms, smoking room, writing room, an observatory, and spacious hallways. There is also a family plot out back, with placeholder headstones which can be replaced with the real thing as your Sim dynasty goes through the generations. A small greenhouse and a few ambrosial trees have been included for those inclined to farm, and a small pond in the front yard should satisfy any Sim with fishing on the mind. While I have strove to keep the interiors realistically "fancy" for a mansion like this, the intent I'm going for is to have a home that will last for many Sim lifetimes, so no modern amenity has been neglected.

So, if you have a Sim family that has built up an insane amount of money and would like to have an estate worthy of that wealth, or perhaps you're not aghast to break out the console and start a dynasty from scratch, this house should be perfect for you!
