You don't have to live in a palace to experience true luxury. Ferretti is a celebration of elegant simplicity and Old World romance. This exquisite home uses an open, breezy floorplan and spacious rooms to give it an airy, expansive feel.

Ferretti is fully furnished and decorated, and comes with a garage (complete with sedan car). It's perfect for a growing family!

-Unique, efficient layout with plenty of doors and windows
-Dramatic low Mediterranean-style roofs
-Fully landscaped with trees, fountains, and elegant courtyards
-Lighting and decorative plants in every room
-Safe and secure with burglar alarms, fire alarm, and phone
-Each bedroom includes a private bath and walk-in closet
-This spacious villa can comfortably house six people, with plenty of room to expand and customize
-And so much more--check it out for yourself!

This charming little villa was inspired by my Arriosa house (see the link and picture of Arriosa below). You can see that the exterior of this house is very similar to Arriosa, though on a much smaller scale! The interior design of Ferretti is completely unique, though many of the themes are similar to Arriosa's. This is the fourth house in the Mediterranean series (and there are more in the works).

Lot Size: 3x3
Fully Furnished: $131,435
Fully Furnished Clean Version: $123,960

This home is an enchanting blend of Old World elegance and contemporary comfort.

This charming little villa gives the illusion of being much bigger than it really is.

The elegant front courtyard is graced by beautiful lighted fountains that welcome you home in style.

Ferretti's exquisite stained glass windows define its distinctly Old World flavor.

The graceful foyer is topped by an impressive cupola with a 20-foot ceiling.

Ferretti's open, breezy floor plan creates an airy, expansive atmosphere. The use of warm, earthy colors and plentiful natural light gives this villa a timeless appeal.

The centerpiece of the home is its comfortable and inviting living room. Relax and enjoy your favorite movies or music!

The formal dining room can seat up to eight people.

Indulge your inner chef in the efficient, spacious kitchen.

Wake up to a promising new day in the sunny breakfast nook.

The luxurious master suite is separate from the rest of the house, for maximum privacy.

The beautiful and spacious master bath is an inviting retreat from the rest of the world.

The master bath features a deluxe lighted shower for two!

Each bedroom is individually decorated in its own unique style.

The spacious bedrooms are ideal for a growing family.

Each bedroom suite has its own luxurious private bath.

Floor Plan


This house contains no hacks! It contains the following custom content:

A series of five paintings (recolors of original Maxis paintings), created by me with SimPE:

-Queen Anne's Lace
-The Favorite Poet
-The Horse Fair
-White Knites

You will need the CEP (Color Enabler Package) installed to your game to use the paintings! Get it here:

You will need the Family Fun Pack to play the original version of this house!

This house was shown with the Millenium reflective floors installed. Please note that this is NOT part of the actual house download! If you wish to install the reflective floors in your own copy of the house, you may get them here:

I have also provided a clean version of the house that contains NO custom content, and doesn't require any stuff packs, as requested! Enjoy!


Be sure to check out Arriosa, one of my most carefully crafted masterpieces! It took over two weeks of uninterrupted work, and you just have to see it to believe it! Arriosa is a luxury Spanish villa with a bold, open floor plan, elegant courtyards with refreshing views, and a dramatically landscaped pool.

Arriosa is here at last! Thank you to Delphy, Aquafina, Fresh Prince, and everyone who made this happen! Get Arriosa here:

Also, make sure to check out Cordillera and Montserrat, two more villas available in this series. Cordillera is a featured download here--check it out!

Saraceno, another unique villa in this series, is in the works and will be finished very soon!


My Policy:
Feel free to use or modify any of my house designs, but only for personal use! Please do not upload them to other sites. And please don't modify my stuff and then try to upload it as your own--I often spend days at a time working on a really big project and take great pride in my work. (My Arriosa house alone took over two weeks of uninterrupted work, and used over a hundred individual cheats!)

As for the custom paintings I have created for this house, you may use them however you like, as long as it isn't for commercial purposes, and under the condition that you give credit and a link back to my profile page here.




Downloading Instructions:

To use the version of the house with the custom paintings installed, download both the regular Ferretti II zip and the Ferretti Paintings zip. Extract the contents of the Ferretti Paintings zip into your Downloads folder. Double-click the house file and it will install to your game. Make sure you have the CEP (Color Enabler Package) installed to your game (see the link above). That's it!


**This post has been updated!** I have provided a new version of the paintings zip, as requested, that should be compatible with all unzipping utilities. Enjoy!


Stonehaven, the first house in my new Country Estates series, is finished! It is currently in the process of being uploaded. Check out the sneak preview here:


Please be sure to check my profile page for any announcements about important issues or houses to be released next. Thank you!
