Price Reduced!!! Now only 246,019 simoleons!


As some of you know, I'm searching for a new house in real life.
...have been searching for over a year now - while waiting for our house to sell, so we can finally move. Finally!
...Anywho - whilst searching on-line through Trulia or Zillow - whichever, they sent me this as a recommendation. Now, why in the world would they send this as a recommendation to ME!!?! My filters are set to only search for houses that are: 2-story, traditional, built between 1890 - 1920, in Central Florida - within a half hour of Disney (which is not anywhere near the beaches!) and in my significantly lower price range. Even the Sim version of this place is too rich for me!

What the blazes?!! *sigh* So, I decided the only thing for it was to Sim it.


I must admit, my first thought when I saw this place was, "OMG! What a monstrosity!" Please remember - I am not a lover of Modern House Design. K? However, after building it and vicariously living here for a while (with the Traveller family) it has really grown on me. I love sitting in the living room with it's built in aquarium, white baby grand, and tremendous view of the ocean. NICE! Please scroll through the pictures up top to see everything



This house - though inspired by the house I saw - is completely a figment of my imagination. I have no idea of the floor plan for the original house, and the outside has obviously evolved quite a bit in simitization. It is a Modern style beach house, built on a 40X60 beach lot*, and costs $246,019.
There are 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 2 full kitchens, dining room, living room, exercise/dojo/sauna, and 3 full sundeck/porches across the back of the house - with more activities and a play area on the beach. While I failed at making it "CC free", there isn't too much added custom content. And, all skilling/living/necessary/etc objects are present. Smoke and burglar alarms are included, as are telephones, internet, and cable. LOL


*NOTE: Beach lots are EXTREMELY fiddly! This was built on the shore in Belladonna Cove. I used the in-game 40X60 beach lot; plopped it down, and built.
If you are having difficulty getting it to place - you may need to put it somewhere along the shore of Belladonna Cove.


<<<ALSO NOTE - this is a copy of the house - NO SIM HAS EVER LIVED HERE>>>

Necessary, and NOT included - GO get them:
Numenor's Unlevel Wall - #90 (only necessary if walls are missing - it means I used the unlevel wall instead of "CFE" while building. If walls are missing, exit without saving and add Numenor's Unlevel Wall to your DL folder before loading this house again)
And, I highly recommend:
Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix

Lot Price (furnished): $246,019

I don't have one Sim in my game right now well off enough to afford this house. However, it is sooooo lovely I may cheat up the dough and create a new family to live here. Absolutely beautiful and I love beach lots!

I think your Sims version looks much better than the original, thanks hun. Just have to say in my opinion that real life house is absolutely horrible, a real eyesore...why would anyone pay 6 mil for it. lol!

Wow Cat that is some house. My first thought was, that's a house?! Looks more like a huge apartment complex until you look inside. I must say in rl if I had 6 mil to spend I would not be buying that. Good job on making a replica which does look far better than it's real life counterpart!

PS I really like what you did with the girls room, I'll have to try and remember that and flog er um maybe do something similar one day.

$6 mil? Only in Florida. Well, or California, I suppose. Seriously whacked-out states. You did a good job simming it, though! Much less ugly and what? Only 5% of the selling price? But then you had to go and ruin it by putting a white piano in it. White pianos are wholly, entirely, and irretrievably evil. Seriously, what were you thinking.?

...OK, OK, so I have an irrational fear of white pianos. I can't help it!

Yeah, well... I'm not really a fan of white pianos either. But, it seemed to fit. Do Imperial Grand Booseys even come in white?
This whole house is kinda completely opposite of what I would want really; but, I like it! I think Malcolm III's ex - or maybe his current mistress - will be moving in shortly. LOL!

Jeez.. 6 Million? Where in CT is this house?! I live on the shoreline and let me tell you.... the area I'm in is NOT 6 Million. Either way, love this house. I like your version more than what's shown in the picture. Yours looks more structurally stable
