Victorian style cottage in light violet with four bedrooms and three and a half baths, wraparound porch and ornamental pond.

First floor features master bedroom with en suite bath, living/dining room, kitchen, office/studio and a half bath for guests. Large porch wraps from front of the house to the right.
Second floor has three bedrooms and two full baths. Two of the bedrooms are furnished with one single bed each, and the other as a nursery. One of the single bedrooms has a private balcony.

Fully landscaped yard features parking for two cars in front, a small pond, patio area with firepit and a space for a vegetable garden on the left side.
The pond doesn't have any fishing spots in it: you can either have your Sim stock it from inventory, or use snaitf's buyable fish spawners to create an active fishing pond. (As is, your Sim can fish in it, but there will be no visible fish swimming, and they won't catch as much).

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 always enjoy seeing your creations, Cali. I especially like seeing your roofs. You always do them so well & they tie in the whole creation together perfectly. Nice job.

Thanks! Building roofs is actually one of my favorite aspects of making houses.

I love this house! And I agree, your roofs are great. That is my hardest thing about building houses. I have this house I built and adore, but I cannot for the life of me get a roof on it properly! So, poor thing looks all stupid with a premade one on it for now... I am DL'ing this one! Thanks!

PS. Thanks for not using too much CC. I have most, if not all, of what you used, so it was easy for me to decide on this one!

That's odd. That never happened to me, I had that house in my main play neighborhood, as well as my build and testing neighborhoods, and it always appeared just fine, so I have no idea why it's happening to you.
I've heard of odd things happening to lots with WA installed. I haven't played Sims since November, actually, and I've never seen any of my lots in a game with WA installed. When I installed WA I removed all my CC, and I've never reinstalled any of it, since I've kind of lost interest in Sims. So I'm sorry I can't really help with your issue.
