Welcome to the Arlington, a stately home with an elegant brick front, three car garage, large backyard, and more. As you enter, a breathtaking two story foyer welcomes you. On either side is the formal living and dining rooms, which are outfitted with stately columns and elegant furnishings. The family room is the heart of the home, offering a bright, airy feel with a fireplace, television and custom cabinet. The kitchen has a huge breakfast nook which opens onto a large patio and granite countertops. A secondary staircase allows easy access to the 2nd floor. The study is so private, but so close, and has access to the backyard and is off the mud room, which opens to the side yard. Upstairs, four bedrooms include the sumptious master bedroom suite with retreat, guest suite with private bath, large bedrooms(one outfitted perfectly for a teen girl, the other for a boy of any age really), and a large loft area for tv watching or homework.

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.

Nice home with a very realistic and playable floor plan, I like it . Thank you for sharing it!

Looks great!
Couple of suggestions, the exterior of the home is beautiful i really like the brick and the black shutters! But the house is set very far back, which can be good, but in this case it makes the front yard look empty with no terrain paint, landscaping, etc. Also it would have been nice if there was a potted plant of some sort on each side of the door? to give it height and also warm it up. (: also maybe some lights on each side of the door, also on the garage.

For the interior, it has a fantastic layout, looks really great, however, although the moldings around the house walls is beautiful, it would have been nice to see more colors.

Another thing I noticed is that there are some VERY small details missing,

There is no floral or candles on the dining table, the chairs in the formal living room are a little to small, the coffee maker is not the same color as the microwave/kitchen area, the parking spots for cars is not evenly spaced.

-As you can see, I was very specific in my observations, I hope i did not offend you!
Its a beautiful home, just missing those 'finishing touches'.

Hope to see more from you soon!


Call me Tyu. (:

Any little sim child would be lucky to grow up here! I like the interior columns. They add elegance to the dining and living areas.
