Designed for an elegant witch with an evil disposition and a talent for the dark arts, this isolated tower is decorated with an abundance of black, but stylishly appointed with the best antiques and accoutrements for a witch and a feline familiar. The tower is perched atop a sheer cliff, and the only way to reach the front door is to cross a bridge over a waterfall. (The start of the stairway/walkway is in the back, along with the mailbox and a couple of wolfsbane plants.)

The first floor houses bookshelves, a chess board, a jelly bean bush and a half-bath. The second floor has a kitchen, dining area, full bathroom and small sitting area, with a scratching post, litter box and cat dish. The third floor is the sleeping area, with a magic mirror, an incense burner and cat toys/cat bed. Above that is the alchemy room, with a research station, plenty of storage for elixirs and their components, and a desk and a planter to aid in research and development. And finally, the top floor has an austere throne room, with a moondial and a pair of gargoyles. The outdoor walkway at the top of the tower leads to a broom rider's "landing pad," complete with more gargoyles, and greenish lighting to add a spooky ambiance when night falls.

There is also an unfinished basement (not pictured because it's just a plain round room) awaiting further expansion... or possibly the bones of unsuspecting passers-by.

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 this house! It's so perfect for a witch. The only thing I changed was turning the roof into a rooftop garden.

This looks amazing, but I don't have World Adventures and Ambitions. Is it still going to work alright?

It should work ok, but you will be missing some things you may need to recolor when the game replaces them for you. You'll be missing more from WA than Ambitions so you'll have to decide if it will be too many changes for you.

From Ambitions, I think you will just be missing the spooky trees and the chairs by the chessboard, which can really be replaced by anything you like.

From WA, it looks like you will be missing the incense burner in the bedroom, the fence around the walkway, the gargoyles on the roof, the front door, a chest and chair in the spell room, the art over the couch in the chess room, and the outdoor landscaping rocks. As noted, the game should just automatically replace those things with a base game item that you can then replace with whatever you want, or recolor to match.

Thank you, this helped me. I'm definitely going to download it despite these changes.
