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 absolutely fantastic! I'm downloading this right away. We need more cute starter homes for our sims. The ones in the game just aren't cutting it for me. :/

I don’t usually download houses because I like to build my own. But this little cottage is so beautiful that I had to have it. Great work, fantastic work, I love it. Thanks

I have been waiting so long for a tiny Victorian!! My neighborhood is only tiny houses and it's hard to try and shrink the big Victorians without having them lose their charm :o But this is PERFECT!! I love the roofs!!

Well I will have to see if I can come up with another one for you, then....cant guarantee a starter, but I will make it small and as cheap as possible.

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.

I am downloading some of your houses and I have to say, you have a true talent for decorating! Sims living in the ones I build will be so completely jealous of those living in yours! LOL

I so love your houses. Small but cute and classy. I hate EA starter homes, and I don't always want to have to use a money cheat just to have a cute and functional smaller home. You don't know how much I appreciate your hard work.

I was looking for the right words to describe it, but you took them right out of my mouth: "charming little Victorian." Holy mother, is it charming. I just want to put it in my pocket c: So darling, yet posh. Great work <3
