This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
My love of high-English architecture in all aspects is relatively unparalleled, so I began building this little gem a while ago and after forgetting about its existence, rekindled its construction. =3 It can comfortably accommodate between six and eight sims, boasting 24 rooms, including five bedrooms and four baths with the possibility of one or more of either, lounge, study, library, ballroom, conservatory, music room and low maintenance but attractive grounds. It sits on a 5x3 lot and will set your simmies back a none-too-hefty 178,699 simoleans, unfurnished.

Haha it sure DOES look like the house from Clue... which just makes it even more amazing! I love Clue, and I think this house is absolutely fantastic. It's so wonderfully detailed, and it's so realistic... I love it!

Wow! Very nice job! It somewhat reminds of the old asylums built many years ago - and that is one of the highest of compliments as many of those old buildings had strikingly beautiful architecture.
