This download is part of the Farm/Rural Creator Challenge

I wanted to enter the farm/rural contest but I had no ideas, until I remembered that I had this lovely farm in my game. So, I have changed it a little: removed some of all the CC; made the entire look and feel appealing and other such tweakings. I hope you like it, I have done my best. And no, I have absolutely no knowledge of horses or how they should be kept; they are only there for ambience.

The ranch house has two floors. 4 bedrooms and 3 baths.

The house is partly furnished. I have only furnished the 1st floor as to show the potential and use of the rooms. The second floor have no rooms furnished. I think you yourself can do that much better to suit your room-needs.

Lot size: 6x6
Lot price: §220.000
game tested: yes, 10 days

You will need the Tuscan Kitchen Set by phoenix_phaerie to get the kitchen to look as in the pictures, and propably also for the lot to work properly. You can find it here:

PS. Lots of feedback and thanks, please!
