An utterly vile and putrid bastion of filth. The former owner has been absorbed by the system and a private investors group is offering the home 'as is' as part of their social experiment. They maintain that the base structure of this shanty for one is still 'salvageable,' but there are those that heavily disagree. According to ground zero witnesses, the first, brutal impression was a fetid, funk of humanity that struck the senses like a concrete wall flying at 80 kps, followed immediately by a lingering foulness that attacked the gag reflex and could not be blocked by any means. Professional custodians have made an effort to deal with the heaps of garbage, but the damage has been done and much material has been smeared beyond restoration. The anatomy is composed of rotting wood so perished that it is turning green, followed by dingy, cracked plaster that has been snafued from a combination of elements. Rusted metal and stained tiles hit that special, sour note to complete the theme.


The fate of the property falls on you. Will you renovate the house and emancipate it from its taint of misfortune? Will you build upon it with care and consideration so that it rises up from indignation? Or is there a sim that you just don't particularly like that you wish to lock up in misery?

The name of the house comes from news articles in the 1990's about Elena Zagustin and her 16862 Morse Circle residence. She was a Cal State Long Beach civil engineering professor and, apparently, a pack rat with compulsive hoarding. The foul state of her beach house inspired the wrath of her neighbors who filed claims for emotional distress, after which a superior court judge ordered Zagustin to vacate and pay over $300,000 in compensatory damages. She became a fugitive from the law and was last believed to have fled to Nevada. Zagustin's attorney had commented "It was like a mob mentality, [ with the neighbors ] ganging up on her."

You make it sound like she is an innocent victim, lol, but dumping your toilet waste in your front yard...that is disgusting. *holds nose*! If you read that article it almost makes you want to gag when they describe her house, what a sad story, she obviously has some kind of problem, and never got the help she needed, and now she's facing life in jail I bet, from bankrupt fraud. -_- But I enjoyed this house, even though it is no where near messy enough for her house to be!

A nice thing to consider for any future designs (especially if you make textures) for a wall is a design with a backslash of tiles, but with several of them popped out like you see in those haven't-been-maintained-in-10-years bathrooms...

Very n... disgusting? 8)

Edit: I love the guy sleeping on the sidewalk out on front xD

Thank you.

Sad to say, when I left care I frequently ended up staying in filthy places like this (not that I was the one making them filthy!)- but maybe my sims deserve a break from the luxurious lots I normally download.
