The cement surround around the front door, square columns, decorative cement slabs, and boxy building shape might kinda lend itself a bit to Frank Simoyd Wright. Right?
Hence the 'Vintage' appellation added to the plan's original name. It is the Modern Style plan with a bit of age some vintage flair added.

This is built directly from the plan below, but I didn't use any CC. So it doesn't "look" exactly like the plan picture.
It is in fact a CC-Free build except for one item - the SimpleModularStairs by HugeLunatic, which allows the 1-click foundation to work.
Without these stairs there is no way anyone can enter the house. *silly sims*

Thank you Mootilda - for the GridAdjuster tool, which allows us to make 1-click Foundations and No-Slope Basements.

The kitchen includes the Upgraded Appliance Package: with a stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, trash compactor, and microwave. There is a gas grill just outside the kitchen side-door. Both the stove and grill have smoke alarms.

Since I was messing around with Moo's Grid-Adjuster anyway (for the 1-click foundation) I thought, "What the heck, let's add a basement... small house needs basement!" So, there is a partially finished basement included. Your sim can figure out a way to use the space, I'm sure...

Please take a tour through the above pictures and see everything this house has to offer. The house is furnished and decorated - though there's plenty room to add more... Furniture/decos are all EAxis in-game stuff. The only CC item is the SimpleModularStairs (linked below.)

All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The telephone is by the front door. The front door is burglar alarmed. The stove and grill 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.

There is parking available for one vehicle on the driveway.

CC list - used but NOT included - so, GO get it:
- Lifestyle Build Bundle - It's the second link in the top post - extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY. I use wallpapers/floors from this bundle all the time, I may have used them in this build.

Custom Content Included:
- Simple Passage Modular by HugeLunatic (HL) @ Sims2Artists - these do need a script file so follow the link and make sure you install them properly!

Lot Size: 2x2
Lot Price (furnished): $52,060

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 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.
