When dear old grandma passed away she left me this in her will along with a small stack of cash. Choices, choices - sell the house and buy something newer or upgrade the old dear's lot??

Chose to do a small upgrade - extended the left side for a open plan kitchen/diner (it took me weeks going around all the DIY stores to find the bits and bobs to retain the "grandma" look in the kitchen, too much modern stuff these days).

On the subject of modern, built a new glass pod leading from the kitchen for a study/career room and added a small pool and new decked area out the back, you don't want to know how many skips it took to clear the back yard!!

Anyway, the rest of the lot is as grandma left it. One bedroom, one bathroom and the living room. I would have got rid of the rustbucket in the garage, but I can't get it to start.

So this is a cosy home for a single or couple as the landscaping is as grandma would have had, just with a little twist.

Price is furnished/unfurnished.

Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price: 63,293/39,065

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.

This is cute! I'm a sucker for intentionally questionable and thoroughly grandma-esque interior design (something I think I actually DID get from my grandma; the clashing flower patterns in the living room look exactly like something she would have). The landscaping, though, is really quite pretty. Excellent work.

Is this a sims3 file? I would like to install it but Install Instructions talk about sims2... so I am a little bit confused!

yep the install info seems defaulted to sims 2, but the file IS .sims3pack format and should install lovely with the launcher app as along as your running TS3 that is..
thanks to all others for the nice comments, hopefully more lots to come in the shape of this style (cozy, cutesy etc)
