This is one of the very first houses I built for the Sims 3 and I've always enjoyed to play with it. Last year it went through a complete makeover and with the new look and colours it's now one of my favourite houses to play with.

It's a two-storey house which is built on a foundation and it gives room to a family with one child - or even two children, if you exchange the single bed with one of the bunk beds that came with the EP "Generations".

Lot Details:

  • master bedroom w/ writing desk
  • bedroom w/ writing desk & computer
  • 2 bathrooms
  • exercise room
  • laundry
  • kitchen & dining room
  • living room

  • outdoor grill area
  • fish pond in the backyard
  • balcony w/ telescope
  • patio w/ easel
  • bicycle stand

Lot Size & Placement:

The house was originally built in Riverview, then rebuilt in Sunset Valley. This lot is best placed on a flat 30 x 30 lot with a grassy ground.

Furnished: 102,988 §
Unfurnished: 51,855 §

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.

This is beautiful. I love the landscaping, front and back. The house itself is very unusual, but decidedly playable. And small enough for my rubbish graphics card to handle!

Thanks to all of you for your lovely feedback. I'm glad you like this build - and its roof - it is one of the first houses at which I tried to create a rounded roof. I had to practice that technique so this is the result...
