The Essex: Modern Plan #3883
4 bedrooms - 2.5 bathrooms - garage
- rooftop deck - multiple balconies - pet friendly -

The brochure says:
Modern Cube Shaped House Plan with 3 terraces, 4 to 5 bedrooms and a garage!
The sleek style of this Minimalist home design will appeal to our forward-thinking customers that seek to distinguish themselves. Offering 4 to 5 bedrooms, including a master suite on the main floor, this house plan will appeal to families with several children as well as blended families.

~~~ Only 2 CC used: HL's Floor/Roof Edger and Stair Corner ~~~


This floor plan is from Drummond House Plans
...and is included with the other pictures above.
NOTE: I changed the upstairs Bed/Bath configuration and gave the three bedrooms access to a rooftop deck.

Please enjoy touring the rest of this design by scrolling through the above pictures. I hope you have sims with modern flair who will enjoy living here.

This house is furnished, and lightly decorated. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The stove has a smoke alarm. The front door is burglar alarmed. Each level has a telephone.

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 for two vehicles: one in the garage, and one on the driveway.

This is a pet-friendly build. No pet items are included - but there is plenty of space to add them, both tubs are accessible for dog washing.

Possibly used but NOT included - so, you may need to GO get it:
--- I use the Lifestyle Build Bundle wallpapers/floors ALL the time. (If you followed that link, it's the second link in the top post - extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY) This 'bundle' lives back in my Bins folder so it doesn't have the CC star. If you ever enter one of my builds and find it has blank/unpapered walls/floors, it is because I used ones from this bundle and forgot to mention it. So, either substitute the wall/floor of your choice, or go get this bundle and re-install the lot (from your lot bin.)

Custom Content Included
- stairCorner Concrete by HugeLunatic (HL) @ GoS
- Roof Edger/fence by HugeLunatic @ Sims2Artists

Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price (furnished): $101,005

Thank you, Mootilda for the awesome Grid Adjuster and Lot Adjuster tools - both were used to make this lot.

NOTE: I use HL's Tweaked SweetDownLow to add shiftablilty and stop items from turning dark when they are shifted down. So - if pictures, curtains, shelves, and ceiling lights have 'jumped' out of place when you install one of my lots - just click the item to put it back in place. The 'jumping' is a side-effect of the mod. It won't affect your game at all (other than the inconvenience of things being initially out of place *sigh*)

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 Deastrumquodvicis' Roof Shader for brighter roofs
And, HW/Honeywell's A Little Greyer: Roof Trim Defaults
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
HugeLunatic's Sweet Down Low Tweaked + for the ability to shift things up/down on a wall without darkening the item!
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.
And, of course, everyone needs Numenor's CEP and SEP!
And Gunmod's Radience Lighting System, which is installed with the Scriptorium (which is necessary for installing CC stairs.)
I also use FRAPs to take in-game pictures, and PhotoShop to clean/collage said pictures.
