Everyone knows a house just like this. You pass it every day without a thought on your way to work, or to school, or to pick up some groceries. It's almost stereotypically normal. You've never see the owner, but you suspect it's some mild-mannered person who quietly works a dull job every day, like an accountant or something. Nothing dangerous or dark about it at all...

...You were wrong. Dead wrong.

Perfect for the mad scientist or sadistic kidnapper, this house looks normal on the outside, but underground you'll find a secret laboratory and six holding cells, perfect for holding prisoners or experiments in. Each cell comes with a bed, a toilet, a shower, a sink, and a mirror. The route to this basement horror is hidden behind a sliding bookcase in the study.

The main house comprises of a living room, a kitchen, a garage, a double bedroom, a study, and a utility room.

The size of the lot is 20x25.

Unfurnished: 48,736 simoleons.
Furnished: 75,889 simoleons.

Name supplied by the almighty, if rather strange, whiterider. :P

Note: After more play testing, I've come across a bug in my game that stops the sliding bookcase from working properly in a newly-placed house. If you have the same problem, just delete the bookcase and place a new one in the exact same spot. It should work now.

Lot Size: 2x3
Lot Price: 75,075

Number of bedrooms: 5 or more
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Fully Furnished
Special Flags: Not Applicable

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 house kinda of reminds me of that 'Let's play' thing I've seen on youtube with the death hotel thing... I don't remember what it was called.

I always wanted to create a wicked witch who imprisoned sims and fed them poisoned apples. I was just too lazy to create a secret basement. Thank you for this. Now I can be sadistic to my sims...mwahahaha

One way to have people locked down there is to call for roommates and set their beds to the ones in the basement and lock the doors behind them.

I love it. The only thing that bugs me is when my starved imprisoned sims pull out their cell phones and starting browsing the internet like nbd.
