This Plantation Style home has several options. The rec room in the pool house can be moved to the attic and the pool house can be converted into an office for one of the new careers. The pool house is also the same size as the garage so if you prefer more enclosed parking it can be easily done. The attic is also the perfect place for a studio if your Sims are more on the creative side.

The main floor has:
Great room
Study / Den
Full bath
Formal Dinning room
Laundry room

The upstairs has:
Adult bedroom with balcony and own bath
2 child bedrooms with shared bath
Adult bedroom with own bath

The attic:
Is ready to be anything your Sims need it to be!

The pool house has:
Rec room
Full bath

The lot has:
Swimming pool
Garden seating
Garage for 2 cars
Room for 4 more cars to park

EA Store item: That will and can be easily replaced.
Romantique Telephone Table – 50 points

I don't think I used anything from HEL.

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.

Wow, what a southern stunner, Romagi! Twinbrook is in dire need of some swish "plantation" style houses like this gem

Wow I love this house. I've been looking for something larger for my simmies that won't look out of place in Twinbrook. I really dislike the look of the premades and building is not my forte. This is perfect for what i'm after! Good job.

I am really glad people are liking this house cause it almost didn't happen! Between not liking the first lot, the power going out and stupidly not saving, the new ceiling tiles hanging in mid air out side and having to restore the back up save I seriously thought about just calling it quits! You will also notice there are no fancy ceiling now So please everyone enjoy!

And DD you do tease! Is there anything you can't build?

I love this house! Thank you so very much. I think I may renovate it to make it suit the family to live there, but it is absolutely wonderful.

Beautiful. I'm beginning a new legacy, and I'll be using this house as their Legacy home, but I was wondering if you could remember which world you built this in? I'd like for it to look as close to the photos as possible. You're an exceptionally talented builder and I was overwhelmed with excitement when I found this house, knowing it was perfect for the Sims I have in mind. Thank you for taking the time to provide us all with your creations!

I built it in Twinbrook and I'm pretty sure I deleted a white house because I like that lot. Happy Legacy! I've only managed to get to generation 3 before wanting to build again.

I finally got my pc working again and am able to begin my legacy. Thanks again for this beautiful home for my sim children to grow up in! It's absolutely perfect!
