The forty-sixth house in my "1920s Series" - inspired by 62 Beautiful Vintage Home Designs from the 1920s - is the "Carstairs," a two bedroom English Cottage. It is a charming house of stucco and brick, with a blue roof. It has a spacious living room and dining room - great for entertaining - and a nice sized yard. The basement is huge! You can customize it easily for whatever you need to use it for. The kitchen is conveniently laid out and features an upgraded appliance package. I hope your sims will enjoy living here!

I made two changes to this floor plan. One, I left out the Murphy bed and use it's closet space for a bar alcove. Second, I took out the linen and pantry closets along the South kitchen wall and changed that area to a hallway - so now you don't have to go through the kitchen to get from the living room to the bathroom or bedrooms. Each bedroom has a large closet; sims don't really need 'linen' closets do they?

Please scroll through all the above pictures to see everything this house has to offer. Furniture includes a double bed, nightstands with alarm clock, two closets, and a dining set. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The telephone is located in the "booth"/alcove in front Hall, as the original plans indicate. The front door is burglar alarmed. The range and fireplace have smoke alarms.

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 over 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! .

There is parking for two vehicles - one in the garage, and one on the gravel driveway.

Standard mods I use that are not necessary nor included - but were probably used whilst building/photo-ing/prepping this house for upload...
If you need help installing Numenor's Unlevel Wall #90, click this info button:

I use Niol/Moi's Roof Shader for brighter roofs
And, HW/Honeywell's A Little Greyer: Roof Trim Defaults
Then, if it's a Bespoke Roof recolor - it will be THESE adjusted versions by The Llama Park/Tumblr that you see used in the pictures.
(However, what you get in the packaged file, will either be the plain EA roof or the straight, un-modified Bespoke roof from the set here on MTS2.)
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: 2x3
Lot Price (furnished): $56,123
