I don't know about you, but when I think of a split-level home, "Luxury" is not the first word that usually comes to my mind. Usually these kind of homes tend more toward the economical side of things... So, I thought I'd do something a bit different. That, and I hardly ever use the GL furniture or wallpapers.


This house features an open "Gallery" type entrance Hall where your sim can display (and sit to discuss) the more serious works in their collection. It has a magnificent view of the garden as well. From here one can go up to the family bedrooms, or downstairs to the other living areas of the house.




Please scroll through all the included pictures to see everything this luxurious residence has to offer.


This is a clean copy of this house/lot; no sim has ever lived here. The package has been cleaned with Mootilda's Clean Installer. Invisible smoke alarms are over the kitchen stove, living room fireplace, and patio grill. There are two wall telephones - one in the upper hall, and one in the lower hall. There is a burglar alarm by the front door. Decorations and furniture are included (there is plenty of room to add more, I did not over-decorate!) I used mostly the furniture from the Glamour Life SP - feel free to change things around to suite the needs/tastes of your sims.

It seems I always try to build CC-Free, and I always fail miserably! *sigh* The CC that was used on this lot was either actually made by EAxis (Bonus items or Store Stuff), Maxis Matching completer stuffeths, or part of Numenor and MaryLou's beautiful rounded flowerbed set. Links are all given below. Thank you to all the creators and file hosters who are keeping TS2 alive


CC list - used but NOT included - so, GO get it:
Unlevel Wall - #90 by Numenor @ MTS2 (this is a "Must!" for split-level houses!) - follow directions and install properly!
From GoS/Maxis Pre-Order Incentives Archive I used the GL/Swanktrovision Luxury TV, TS/Mt King Snowboard sculpture, and IKEA/Nominell Chair (in black)
EAxis Store: Asian Fusion Collection also at GoS - I only used one thing - the Potted Orchid Divine
Maxoid Archive Items - I used the Pyramid Topiary
If you want a pretty driveway, you will need the Invisible Driveway by Sophie-David @ MTS2

...and if you have missing wallpaper/flooring, then you'll need Lifestyle Build Bundle - It's the second link in the top post - extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY. I use wallpapers and floors from this set all the time. It lives in my 'bins' folder - so nothing from it packages with a lot; but, it also doesn't have a CC-star in my catalog, so I frequently forget if I've used one of them in a lot.

Custom Content Included:
- Maxis Indestructible Concrete Modular Stairs - made recolorable by Huge Lunatic (HL) @ MTS2 - no script file needed as these override the original stairs.
- Maxis Shinto/Step Into A World Stairs - made recolorable by Huge Lunatic (HL) @ MTS2 - no script file needed as these override the original stairs.
- Invisiblesmokealarm by pfish @ MTS2
- Backless Cheap Shower and Tub/combo Shower by Huge Lunatic (HL) @ MTS2

Standard mods I use that are not necessary nor included - but were probably used whilst building/photo-ing/prepping this house for upload...
I use Moi's Roof Shader for brighter roofs
Maranatah's White Wall Top texture replacement
Moo's Turn On/Off Lights
Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix
BeosBoxBoy's no-red-pause-mod
Nopke's Go Under Spiral Stairs mod for proper spiral stair usage
And, of course, everyone needs Numenor's CEP and SEP!
I also use FRAPs to take in-game pictures, and PhotoShop to clean/collage said pictures.
And, I highly recommend using gummilutt's Invisible Medicine Cabinet to add features to any mirror - as per her policy, it's not used or included in this lot.

Lot Size: 4x3
Lot Price (furnished): $179,147

Thank you EAxis for this wonderful game
