Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I was trying to create a modern home and as you see I failed miserably, but I did create this cross between modern and classic. I would envision that this home would be perfect for the couple who like to entertain guests as it has a large furnished pool area perfect for outdoor parties. With three bedrooms, three baths and the outdoor play area this home is perfect as a family home for your Sims with children. As always, I hope you and your Sims enjoy!
Happy Simming,
Christine

Note: This home was made with the base game, but the game is fully patched. There is only one piece of custom content and that is a roof recolor made by me. Please feel free to include my custom content in your houses, but please never re-upload my houses to any website and this includes the exchange!







Lot Size: 4x3
Lot Price: 117000 furnished and 77,000 unfurnished

Custom Content Included:
- Roof Recolor Blue by Christine-cc4sims

Number of bedrooms: 3 Bedrooms
Custom Content Included: Build content only
Furnishings: Fully Furnished
Special Flags: Not Applicable

You must have the expansion, game version or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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 don't usually download lots (too much landscaping and I hate hills), but this is super cute, thank you

You've done it again with another fantastic house! This looks like the houses in the Forest Heights Neighborhood where I used to have a list of clients and do show houses for remax agents.

I loaded this beautiful house but when I tried to place it on a lot it wouldn't appear on the lot (showed the lot as empty with mailbox and trash can only)and then my game would crash. Confusing. I don't have any custom content in my game and base game only. I wish I could play it, very lovely home.

Yes, Just I am. I don't know why it is doing this in your game. What exanpansion, stuff packs do you have?

Love will humiliate you and hate will cradle you.
Jealousy would be far less torturous if we understood that love is a passion entirely unrelated to our merits.

No expansions or stuff. Just base game. I have loaded other house from MTS okay, though I had trouble with one other housedownload, and I have no odea what is wrong. I have1.15.34.008001 which EA is telling me is the up to date version. Says I have current update. Bummer. (shrug) Thanks for listening, and I do love your house.

Your game is not up to date, this house was created with version: Built with Game Version: 1.17.60.00 <~~~You need to check your update thing for your game again. With the new update you will be able to create fountains etc just like you do pools.

Christine, thanks for the news. My game is telling me I am up to date, odd. I will have to work on that. Thanks for explaining to me!

Got it! Yea! I had to reload my EA download manager and then it updated me. I have placed this house on a lot and am off to play it. Thank you. Love the new updates, too.
