This medium-sized estate is perfect for the large sim family looking for space, but don't want to sacrifice the cozy feel of a home. This estate features 5 spacious bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms. 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom is located near the back of the house as the retirement suite for elderly sims. Other features include a spacious eat-in kitchen, formal dining room, study, a large central family room, main floor master suite, bubbling pond with 5 types of different fish, greenhouse with grown plants, art gazebo, covered car port, and upgraded plumbing, appliances, and electronics. Everything has been lovingly furnished and decorated in soft yellows and greens .. except for the 3 bedrooms upstairs, which has been left unfurnished to allow you to customize to your specific needs. Furnished, this lot costs 114,831 simoleans. Unfurnished (which will make me sad ), this lot costs 77,986 simoleans.

Lot Price: 114,831

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.

I love the appearance of the house and think the decorations are lovely. However, my favorite thing is that this house will fit my style of play (multigenerational families) beautifully, and it doesn't cost a huge amount. Thanks so much!

I Dont normally DL lots but i have to say this IS really pretty. I especially like the shade of green used in the LR and Kitch. But i think my fav aspect is the guest room. Very well done.

Thank you for the comments, guys! This was my first upload to modthesims as the exchange on the official site isn't always so reliable.

@Anahita1: This was actually a practice build I did for my 2nd generation Legacy! I specifically laid out this floorplan so I could use it for many generations. I ended up liking the practice build enough to polish it off and upload! I hope you enjoy!

I use this for my family of four, maybe turning into family of five. I can't tell you how nice it is to have a house with big enough rooms and an open floor plan. I deleted the wall of the dining room to make it at the bottom of the stairs and it works awesome in my game.

I also really appreciate the sprinklers in the garden!

Thank you, Guardgian! Hope your simmies enjoy!

@omgahitskasey: One of my main goals when I build a house is to make it very playable. It annoys me when I see a nice house and then find that my sims have a hard time moving around inside once I download and install, so it makes me really really happy to hear you are finding the build easy to play on! I am currently using this house with my legacy family with 8 sims! The only issue I've come across are the bookcases flanking the fireplace. You might need to move them a tad, as I think they are too close to the fireplace and sims can't get to it.

Thank you for downloading and taking the time to comment on my hard work!
