The immense variety of flowers and flora confer this house a unique garden and a beautiful setting. Whether you love to relax by the pool under a sunny day or prefer to just stay inside and read a book, this may just be the house for you, if you can afford it.

Exterior & Backyard
The main entry has a covered porch. The house is almost entirely bounded by flowers and shrubs.
In the backyard a patio and a pool make a perfect junction for an afternoon spent surrounded by family and friends. Also, a nice gazebo completes the landscaping.

First floor
The living room is a nice spacious room, right on the entrance of the house. Also in this floor, the dining room, the kitchen and a guest bathroom.
The side-entry garage can hold 2 cars and has an entry from the inside of the house.

Second floor
In the upper floor, there are 2 teenage bedrooms (one includes a private bath), the master suite and the study/TV room.

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.
