Sims 3 starter home.

This home has one nice sized bedroom, study or nursery and one bath. It comes with basic starter furnishings, a smoke detector, TV, computer, bookcase, chess table, lighting, appliances and sleeping and seating for one to three Sims.

There is a balcony off the master bedroom big enough for a telescope to stargaze or a bench to cuddle under the stars. There is another area off the study that could be balcony but you will have to change the window into a door.

This lot has a pond and there is plenty of room for a driveway, garden and/or pool. (There is terrain paint where a driveway will fit but no actual drive.)

When your Sims are starting out don’t buy and replace - use the color palette tool - does not cost your Sims a dime (simolean)!

If you have problems with people not using the front door click on the front door and tell it to set it as the front door!

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.

I love starter homes. There aren't that many with the game, and so this is great! Thanks!

Niiice. This is probably a house I want to move into in real life. It's just right and I love the roof
