Right... This house has 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a dining room, kitchen, and living room. There's also a garden out back which took a LOT of effort and swearing to make, I don't think I've ever put so much effort into a garden.
Default size is a 30x30 lot, but I should think its easily adaptable to bigger sizes. There's a bit of room for expansion at the sides but that's about it! Carpool for two cars...

Pricewise :

Furnished - 155, 575
Unfurnished - 80, 947

No CC of any kind..

This lot needs Ambitions, but it doesn't matter how many times I try it wont let me select 'Ambitions' so just a heads up, all the windows and probably other stuff is from it!

And now... Phototime!!

The house from the street:

First Floor:


Well that's about all I can think of!

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.

It's pretty. Good job! Actually it's perfect for a family I've been trying to place in a nice home.

nice work! i was totally going to join the contest, but unfortunately all of the work i had done on my house got deleted because there was something wrong with my computer. it was only letting me go into safe mode and it kept restarting itself, so i couldn't save it in time before my computer had to be re imaged.

The house is very pretty and I love the way you decorated it!
Just saw your second entry for the contest and think it looks amazing. The pond that goes under the house is very cool. Hopefully you'll put that one up here too!
Good luck with the rest of the contest!
