Here it is! It took almost a year to actually get around to making the necessary changes for upload, but I finally did it. Inspired by a house that caught my eye for a split second along the Cape Cod Canal, I present my second upload to MTS2, The Squire. It's a handsome colonial for a classy suburban neighborhood. Made with painstaking realism and fine-tuned interior design and landscaping, it should suit your white-collar Sims and hopefully the Community's downloading interests.



The house comes furnished or unfurnished. There are 4 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, 2 porches, a guesthouse above the 2-car garage, 2 living rooms including the basement, 2 hot tubs (one indoor, one outdoor), a study, a lumpy-shaped pool in the backyard, gazebo, a fresh-mowed lawn, and a bunch more!



The interior style is mostly from the "mission" collection by Maxis in an attempt to keep cc to a minimum, plus it went well with the beautiful hardwood floors and wall paint, the creators of which I am forever indebted to for designing my signature style. Every room has a (relatively) realistic feel and should be fun to play.



The backyard is typical suburban, with a lumpy-shaped pool and jacuzzi. Okay, so it's a little fancy, but it matches the house well. Then there's the "playroom" style basement. What you do with that space is pretty much up to you!

Okay, then. Hope you enjoy, and if you like The Squire go ahead and check out my "Contemporary Barn" house that shares similar styles. Also, comment/PM me any suggestions! I like constructive criticism.
