Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hi every one! I am here again after my first upload house gained a picked star.
This time I made a larger one that is a typical contemporary design house which is beside a lake.
In case of the desire to make a special architecture, I put more emphasis on its geometric form and the out-side structure, such as the proportionally large windows which provide a brighter inner living area.
The ground plan is completely open and spacious and your sims can enjoy a lot of fun from fishing beside a such big lake.
Hope the water lilies will light up your sims’ mood!
The interior is a combination of some color from natural and earth such as orange, white, brown and ect.
The furniture is simply and modern designed which can be comfortable to live in. Because of the limited of the pics, many things can't show up now such as the outdoor look.
Your sims also will enjoy a lux life from the in-door spa(tiny swimming pool).
I think it can afford about 5-6 people. Hope you enjoy my house in game!!
Veeeerrrrry thanks to your support! See you next time!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Cool! First post gained a star, way to go!

It's a fancy modern design. Gotta download it... :D

After 7 year hiatus, Worldwide lockdown (and regretting the purchase of The Sims 4 last autumn sale) brought me back to The Sims 3.

This is a cool house.

Love will humiliate you and hate will cradle you.
Jealousy would be far less torturous if we understood that love is a passion entirely unrelated to our merits.

Get a "picked" star on side of the thread name whit such a beautifull creation is as easy as stoling candies from a baby! xD

Fancy, modern lot. Seems really perfect for a (Damn') rich and fashionable family of 3/4. And to be given the top rate, too.

Really nice work. I like the fact that you made the house really bright, but that you still managed to keep it cosy .
