It's okay, I will let you all gawk at this amazing pool. Oh yes, I know you probably aren't, you're just thinking oh look, another sim house. But really, come on, if this house were real, wouldn't you just love to go to a pool party here or something?

This time around, I wanted to make a house with a massive pool. Yes I know, lots of modern houses have pools. Most all of them. But how many have massive pools with loads of room?

It has (and I'm just talking about the first level outdoors!)

-6 lounge chairs
-a Late night bar (one inside too!)
-large table
-grill
-couch
-chess
-2 speakers (they blend in, but you probably can see them if you look)
-fire pit*
-hot tub*

*While you can't see these items in this first picture, they are there, to the left. You can see a picture of them in my photos.

So yes, clearly this house is ideal for a sim that would love to throw some pool parties.



As you can see, I have a small fountain in the front, and a carport for two carts (I don't include the cars in the price of the house).



With a house this big, you can expect there to be many ameneties. And that assumption is correct, let me tell you!

-3 bedrooms (not that many for such a big house, but you can always change one of the rooms into a bedroom
-4.5 bathrooms (that small space on the first floor was just the perfect place for a half bath! I usually dont add half baths unless there is a place for one)
-Late night bar inside (as well as the outside one)
-telescope on second floor balcony
-cat room
-large laundry room
-family room and living room
-kitchen table and dining table
-gym
-study

I hope I didn't forget anything! Two of the bedrooms are for adults due to their double bed holding capacity (LOL), and the other one is intended for a kid. It has a lot of toys in there!

I colored the house mostly with white, black, and tans/creams. I put a little more color into the kids room since hello, kids love color. Or at least I always have!

Expansion Packs

Mandatory (lots of items):

-Showtime
-Late night
-Pets (if you want the cat room, otherwise I used little items, you can make the room a hobby room or something instead
-ambitions (for washing and some lighting fixtures
-I also used high end loft stuff

Optional:

-World Adventures (I pretty much just used like one palm tree xD)
-generations (just a few items, mostly in the kid room)
-seasons (a few pieces of furniture)
-university (I used just a few pieces, and the hampers from it but you can use the ambitions hamper)

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.

Great lot! Your lots just keep getting better and better.

Absolutely wonderful uses of the windows throughout. The "sun room" on the back, with the fireplace, the windows on 3 sides, the porch there, the roof overhang, the railing, and the clerestory on it is my favorite bit. That part has a very Streamline Moderne feel to it, and I love it!

Thanks!

Thanks so much everyone! It was a challenge to make, but very enjoyable none the less, despite taking forever to build, as im sure you would guess.
