Custom content: frillen's invisible driveway didn't get packaged with the lot, so I included it as a separate file. Put in your downloads folder before attempting to play this lot. The 4esf ceiling rim is included with explicit permission from the creator; it's also covered by their redistribution policy as of 2007-12-08.

Starter house with private beach, sparsely furnished for 1-2 sims with one spare room.

1 x double bedroom
2 x bathroom
1 x kitchen/dining/living room
1 x spare room (empty)

All basics included; one driveway included (but no car).

The swimmable sea is made with Invisible Floortiles by the wonderful frillen -- sims can swim in the neighbourhood water like in a pool (they don't sink in), on a swimmable area that is seamless on all sides and casts no shadow. The diving animation is a bit glitchy -- sims clip through the diving board when they jump --, but since this part of the animation goes by very fast in-game, I don't consider it a major issue. Thanks frillen, this is great!

Made along the lines of this tutorial.

Please note that this is a sloped lot -- it must be placed at a shore in order for the swimmable sea to work. The left edge of the lot (seen from the street) is 100% straight, so you can place a flat lot next to it on that side. Works well with the Middleground terrain ("NhoodView" screenshot is taken in Middleground) or any other one that has a similar slope between road and shoreline.

Non-NL users will have to replace a fence and won't have a driveway; other than that it should work with any EP from NL onwards. No warranties for BV -- I have no idea whether or not neighbourhood water behaves differently in BV, and I don't have BV so I can't test that.

Lot Size: 2x3
Lot Price: 19.990§
