Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
important - that means you should probably read this

Sometime along the way ,probably when pets was added, EA updated how the game routes around roof pieces. Due to this little dilemma the two older versions of this house have routing problems in the attic. Unless you want to take the roof apart ,something that I wouldn't really recommend, you will need to download the file named newcarson . Thank you for bringing this to my attention Rimbaudian.

The roof update doesn't effect the look of the exterior at all.

The exterior is based off of the Carson mansion located in Eureka ,California. I know that the roofline is very strange but it is true to the house. Since I never could find a floorplan, the interior is probably not very true to the real building. Though it is not exact ,I did use some details from interior pics throughout the structure. The house is built to hold a family of any size .
If you like the victorian style you will probably like this house .

Here are some pics of the actual house .


furnished $455,031 - the updated version from 6/8/2012 might be a little cheaper
unfurnished $212,176
lot size 64x64
requires all Eps and Sps up to generations
this house includes no CC

old pictures

This house contains the following rooms:

a living room,
a dining room,
a kitchen,
two sitting rooms,
a music room,
a library,
a few hallways,
five bathrooms,
six bedrooms,
a laundry room,
a party room,
a tower room,
a porch ,
and a rooftop deck.

I also put a carriage house on the lot because I thought it would be rather sad for a sim to sped over 400,000 simoleans and not get a garage .

Enjoy !

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.
