WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF MAGIC: Harry Potter Collection of Lots!
This set includes both residential and commercial lots. There are a total of 25 download pages (with 34 individual files to download) in this collection.

Harry Potter Collection: Spinner's End

Originally, I was only going to create Snape's terrace row home in Spinner's End, but decided to make it a residential neighborhood instead. This lot contains Severus Snape's childhood and summer home. Snape lives at the end of a row of terrace houses. His house is the first one to the left of the lot. It is very dark inside and filled with bookshelves. There are a few local businesses, a church, a river and a playground where Snape met Lily Evans (Potter) and her sister Petunia Evans (Dursley). The Evans' family home is also on this lot (located on the other side of the river).

Lot Data
RESIDENTIAL LOT / 4 x 5 Lot / §430,529 / Furnished / Includes: A Row of 3 Two-Story Terrace Houses, 2 Small Family Houses (one belonging to the Evan's family), a library (with a restroom), a pub (bar), a Fish & Chips restaurant, an abandoned Textile factory (with a chimney that rises above Spinner's End), a church, a playground and a dirty river separating the haves from the have nots

3 Terrace Houses:
(1 belonging to Snapes, 1 abandoned, 1 belonging to a neighbor, each with a living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom)
Evans Family Home:
(3 Stories, Small Back Yard, 2 Bedrooms, a Play Room, 1 and 1/2 Bathroom, A Family Room with a Sitting area, Dining area, Kitchen)
Evans' Neighbor's House:
(2 Stories, Small Back Yard, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, A Family Room with with a Sitting area, Dining area, Kitchen)

Other Information:

I owe the deepest of gratitude to all the extraordinary artists whose objects helped to bring my vision of Harry Potter's Magical World to life! Thank you for sharing your time and talent with the Sim community. Thank you to the following artists for helping to bring a little "magic" to the Sim
World: Mia,Worship4ever and Lara. Be sure to browse the links at the end of the post for other fabulous downloads by each artist!

All stephanie b. walls, floors and ground covers included in houses downloaded from MTS2 can be used in lot creations on any free or pay site as long as I receive credit for the textures. Please do not post my textures (walls, floors or groundcovers) or lots on other sites without my permission or reupload them as your own by giving them color face-lifts without giving me credit for the original design. Thank you!

These lots are creations from my imagination based mainly on excerpts from the books and on-line information. I am basing very little on the movie versions of each place, so don't expect exact replica's of movie versions of the various places in the Magic and Muggle World.

My vision for this neighborhood is that the students do not "live" in Hogwarts. I see the school as home to only a few teachers (Dumbledore, McGonagall, Trelawney). Everyone else is spread out in either their family homes or in the Summer Houses.

I used the floorplans found on the Harry Potter Lexicon site as inspiration. For extensive Potter INFORMATION, checkout the HP Lexicon here:

Enjoy the lot!

Hi Steph,
You have really put a lot of work into this project. I like the way you fully describe the locations and give some background info. Although not my personal, "cup of tea", you have certainly brought Harry and Co to simland.
Keep up the great work.

While the Harry Potter "following" may not be your "cup of tea", I appreciate you taking the time to post a comment about the collection. Initially, I was not into Harry Potter as I thought it was so "childish". After a colleague of mine gave me the first 4 books when she retired from teaching and my son begged me to purchase the first movie about 1 year ago, I found myself lost in how magnificent Rowling's mind must be to create such a wonderful world where she dealt with a diversity of topics in such an awesome way. Needless to say, I have read the books to my young son and we have watched every movie to date. I do digress... Thank you for you comment!

You will be SHOCKED to know I have finished the shell for the Ministry and I can't wait for YOU to see it (especially since I am really creating it NOW for your happiness!) YOU WON'T BELIEVE YOUR EYES, THOUGH! OMG! ....Now, that I am have tormented you enough...I will upload it tomorrow. I am adding the finishing touches (designer walls & floors). I am also trying to find a few must have objects to get the look I want in a few of the rooms. Just so you'll know...10 stories, underground, with an INTERESTING entry level...:D

Take care for now!

Stephanie, these are wonderful! I write Harry Potter fanfic and when I get time hope to do some Sims movies of them and am always on the lookout for HP content. Your lots look amazing!

Thanks for the compliment. I created the lots with Sim story/movie writers in mind. I hope you can use them in your Sim movies! Take care and happy movie making!
