Brooklyn Brownstone
Based on RL: 198 Washington Park, Brooklyn, NY
Both Single Family & Subleted versions are available to download
Place several of these side-by-side for a Row House effect like the cover picture implies.
8 bedroom - plus nursery - 5.5 bathroom
- no slope basement - attic - pet friendly - walled garden -

~~~ Only 3 CC - stairs ~~~

Enjoy!

The floor plan comes from Brownstoner.com; and the "Zillow" listing from last year. It was listed for 6.5-million, and sold Jan/2021 for $4,875,000. My floor plan inspiration picture is included in the pictures above.






I was going to just "suggest" that this lot could be made into apartments (I only want the Single Family Home, as originally designed, for my game.) But, a friend of mine was having trouble converting a similar house into apartments - so I thought maybe I should try it before suggesting it. It took me over 5 hours, and quite a bit of rebuilding to make it work! Partly because of the No-Slope Basement and lowered foundation Grid-Adjuster work, and partly because of the Lot-Adjusted shrunk sides... mostly because TS2 doesn't like staircases in apartments. *sigh* So, the upper inside staircases have all been changed to the spiral staircases - I don't like the aesthetic - but it works. That's the only difference between versions. Well, and rezoning for apartments.

So, the Sublets Available version: offers two apartments.
- The bottom 2 floors (Garden level and Basement) with 2 room-mate style bed/bath suites and a small kitchen. Rent is $3,941
- The upper 3 floors (plus the attic) with 6 bedrooms (plus a nursery) and 3.5 Bathrooms. Rent is $7,693.

Yes, it's pricey... but not nearly 6.5-million!


This house is furnished, and lightly decorated. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The stoves, grill, and fireplaces all have smoke alarms. Both front doors are burglar alarmed. There are telephones on each level.

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 no parking.

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. The back yard is not accessible to large dogs because of the 2-click foundation height. They can get to the terrace dining area, but not down to the grass.

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
- Romanesque Stairs by Chrissy6930 @ TS2 Creations - which is gone, but now hosted on SFS via CaptainJack's Simblr
- Chic Stairs - made RECOLORABLE by HugeLunatic (HL) @ MTS2 - no script file needed as these override the original stairs.
- Chic Stairs - Open Underneath by HugeLunatic (HL) @ MTS2 - these do need a script file so follow the link and make sure you install them properly!

Lot Size: 3X1
Lot Price (furnished): SFH version = $162,011
Rent Price (furnished): Sublet version = $3,941 - $7,693


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

  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
Gunmod's Radience Lighting System, which is installed with the Scriptorium (which is necessary for installing CC stairs.)
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.
And, of course, everyone needs Numenor's CEP and SEP!

NOTE: Sweet Down Low Tweaked + sometimes causes pictures, curtains, shelves, and ceiling lights to 'jump' out of place when you first install a lot. You can 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*)
