Nestled atop a beautiful snow covered hill, this elegant home is the perfect place for your Sims to spend the holidays!

5 bedroom/6 bath
4x5 lot

This lot contains custom Maxis made objects, but does not require any additional stuff packs.
All custom terrains, walls and floors were created by me.

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

Very beautiful house!

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

This is absolutely stunning.. but where is the floorplan? That is usually what I will rely on before downloading a house, because some houses are beautiful, but I find their floorplans too awkward to play for me. Either way, gorgeous lot!

Wow! Such lovely compliments and comments. Thank you all so much! Sorry I missed the upload of the floor plans, the system never wants to take my large photos. Lol! Anyway, it's done now.

This is breath taking, Linda, excellent work as always!

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.

Thank you everybody! I'm so happy you all like the place, and can use it in your game. I've played it (more than just for testing) and it was a lot of fun to play. Have fun!

Default Major Problem with Lot
Ok, major problem... I downloaded this a week or so ago and just now got around to playing it. When I try to enter the house to look around (no sims playing it), I get two problems. First, it says it costs over a billion dollars... seriously. Then, not even halfway into loading the lot, it crashes my game... Any suggestions? Is this happening to anyone else?

Wow! Now that is really strange. I wonder if this is another one of the pet related bugs? I had never heard of this problem before. The other night I added one of my neighborhood families to it, and hadn't had any problems playing it at all. I'm sorry you are experiencing a problem. I wish I knew what might help.
#18 Old 17th Dec 2006 at 8:57 PM
hmm... ok, I'm going to keep trying to figure it out because I really want to play this lot, it looks great! Thanks for sharing anyway :D

Thanks Gangreless. I'm really glad you like it so much. If this one proves to be too much trouble for you, I also uploaded it to the exchange:

You could try downloading it from there and see if it works better for you. I don't understand what the trouble might be.

Hi, when I play this lot, the whole backyard seems to be underwater? Anyone else have that problem?

The lot was built on a backward slope. If you enter the lot and save it while you are there, the next time you enter, the water should be gone.

The water is there temporarily, and the Sims will walk right through it as though it were not there at all! Good luck!

Absolutely breathtaking.
I saw an fibre optic house the other day that looks exactly like this!

Now that the official Sims 2 site is no more, I am so glad this house is here. Thank you for saving it ... it's beautiful, and it would have been sad to see it flung into cyberspace.

Thank you, gazania! Wow, I had heard the official site was ending, but hadn't known when. It is sad to think of all those houses and creator pages gone forever. Thanks for your kindness and reply. Have a very Merry Christmas and an awesome year ahead!
