'Briar Rose' is the second in a series of 3 houses I'm building to replace the condo style house that came with Sunset Valley. Of course these houses can be placed anywhere, but they are made to match each other. (The first in the series is Rose Red Cottage )

This Craftsman style home features four large bedrooms and 3.5 baths, covered front and side porches and a second floor balcony.
Master bedroom on the first floor has en suite bath and door to the side porch. The second first floor bedroom is furnished as a nursery with two cribs, and is large enough to hold a double bed or two or three singles. There is a second full bathroom on the first floor, as well as a half bath.
Open plan living/kitchen/dining area.
Second floor has two large bedrooms. One is furnished as a single, and has it's own balcony. The second is extra large, furnished with two single beds, and could hold more if your family needs it. (The family I tested it with already had two children and then produced triplets.)
Second floor also features a full bathroom and a study nook in the hallway.

Driveway for two cars, and plenty of yard space to add a garden.

Hewnsman Full Set

There are a couple of items from this set I didn't use (fences, gate, column, three tile curtain) but I did use just about everything, and with the set discount, it would be cheaper to buy the set than buy each item I did use individually.

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 this series. I'm trying to avoid filling my neighborhood with cookie cutter McMansions, but it's so hard to find a roomy, reasonably priced home. I'm so glad you've made this series of houses!

This is an absolutely gorgeous house. I really love your work. It's so nice to see houses big enough for actual game play with large families. I love the look of it.

However, it looks like the custom windows used have been removed and are no longer available. I'm going to try to install the house without it. I'll let you know how that goes.

Thanks!
Yes, those windows are no longer available. You can still use the house, there just won't be a window in the places where the missing CC was. Just put in another window to replace. If you don't have a suitable window already, I suggest checking out Huge Lunatic's Country Windows:
