Well hi,


Originally the Wickswell tower, this manor was built in the early 1900's.
Why tower? Nice that you're asking.
The tower and the small part at the right of the house, was the original Wickswell house. Wickswell bought the tower in 1832 because he thought in case of war the old tower could be useful. No war, but still a nice tower to live in. Wickswell became older and his kids had to move out as soon as they were 18 because the house was too small for 5 Sims. When Wickswell died, the tower remained abandoned until 1897, when one of his grandsons moved in. He was a businessman and business went well. He kept earning money and at some point, he was so wealthy that he was thinking about a bigger house, but moving away? No way! He extended the tower more and more until the tower was just a small part at the back of a huge mansion; The Wickswell manor.




After he bought his first car (He was tired of being driven around) the garage was built into the house for easy access, but one car wasn't enough. A second, double car garage was built and a guest house above it. The only thing missing was a pool but that was done quickly. Now his life and manor were complete, and his brothers could visit him and sleep in the guest house. They could even bring their kids as there's space for 4 Sims!


Now, the current generation of Wickswell likes it ultra-modern and sadly decided to sell their manor as renovating it to their likings wouldn't be possible.

Love it! I have a question though, is there enough room for 7-9 people? (two of them would share a room) Because I have a family with 4 kids and they are going to have more

Looks great! Clever CFE solution for avoiding a dormer with the stairs going to the third floor. Nice.

Yay I'm so glad that I can use this house But I'm having a problem, I'm trying to place it in SV but it lowers the part where the house actually is so its unroutable.

I'm not sure why that happens, the house is built on a completely flat lot..

If you remember me, I'm awesome!

Well, I just tried it on a 50x50 lot and it does the same thing but on the edge? It looks like the house was pushed down when I placed it, but everything else is sitting flat.

You've run into the old sunken/raised lot glitch that no-one seems to know why it happens. There is a cheat to lower and raise the lot level (see here ) but is annoyingly cumbersome to use.

Very usefull. I'm really used to building on the Builder's Island and I'm sad to hear that this glitch happens to a lot of people who've downloaded houses which are made in that world. Really sucks if they just want to play but have this problem instead.
