The seventh house in my "1920s Series" - inspired by 62 Beautiful Vintage Home Designs from the 1920s - is another Colonial Revival style house. This time, with a welcoming pergola covered front porch, three large bedrooms (two are double bed sized), a huge living room, large dining room, spacious kitchen, basement, carriage house style garage... and one bathroom.

To match the picture of the original house, I used Moothilda's GridAdjuster and gave it a cute little 2-click foundation. (Sadly, that means large dogs will not be able to go inside the house - sorry!)

This house also has a no-slope basement - which means the neighborhood terrain around the house will look great!
There will not be any trenches/canyons/terrain-wrinkles or dips around the lot imposter (neighborhood view) of this house. BUT...

*sigh* All the warnings and disclaimers aside - this IS a very sweet house. It is so much like the house my hubby grew up in (on Long Island) that I had to put a piano in the living room just for him. It also translated very well to TS2. I love the use of split stairs, which are also found in the 5th house of my 1920s Series. This house is minimally furnished with a double bed, nightstand, two easy chairs, a side table, dining table, and the piano. Appliances, plumbing, and lighting are included. The telephone is on the wall in the kitchen. The front door is burglar alarmed. The range and fireplace have smoke alarms. Please scroll through all the above pictures to see everything this house 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.
Pictures were taken with Invisible Fire Alarms in place, but the lot is packaged without that mod. So, you will see the fire alarm over the range in the kitchen, and the fireplace in the living room.
Pictures were also taken with the Invisible Driveway, but the lot is not packaged with it.
I highly recommend both invisifying options! .

CC list - necessary and NOT included - so, GO get it:

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: 3x2
Lot Price (furnished): $49,143
