Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Suburban Manor started out following a traditional house plan with siding, built on a 3/4 foundation. The formal flower beds and some build elements seemed a little out of place with the siding so I used a stone wall instead and now I think the house looks more like a manor.

The floor plan was altered as well to make the kitchen slightly larger and the master bedroom was made smaller in order to add a family room and fourth bedroom upstairs. Switch out the stone for some siding, though, and this house is perfect for a typical American suburb.
Custom Content Needed But NOT Included:

Modern Georgian Manor Set by phoenix_phaerie

Japanese Style Rocks Fence by TheJim07
Medium 3x4 Lot
4 Bedrooms (1 furnished)
3 Bathrooms
Lights, Alarms, Phone
All Skill Builders

Playtest Notes:
The house was playtested with a family of four and their cat for a year.

Layout and rooms work and flow well for sims. The family room and the eat-in kitchen (furnished like a study) were sim favorites.

All furniture can be used and is fully functional.

All the landscaping can be reached and was maintained by hiring the butler and gardener both without help from the sim family.

The game recognizes the door on the garage as the front door. The backyard is fenced off and can't be accessed without going through the house so the newspaper is left on the side walk. If you remove the door to the garage sims recognize the "real" front door and the paper is left on the porch.

This house is beautiful and highly realistic! Sadly, I can't download it because I don't have all the required EPs and SPs... but if I did, this would definately be going in my game! Keep up the good work!

I reject your reality and substitute my own.

Very beautiful design. Since I've been living in a medieval creation world, I find myself looking at modern Sim lots like yours and getting all googly eyed! I love the detail in decoration and the overall ambience of the layout. The landscaping (which is one of my pet peeves) is absolutely stunning! The house is very welcoming and I'm sure many Sims would be glad to call this jewel home.

Thank you for sharing this!

Hey Honeywell, thanks for this beautiful home!

Are sims able to use both garages and driveways properly? Apparently I heard if a garage and driveway is placed is too close to the edge of the lot the car and/or sim can disappear?

I've never experienced a problem or heard of that but I did place the driveways with cheats so if someone, somewhere has experienced disappearing Sims I guess it's possible? I don't know anything about it.
