Inspired by a picture of a small cottage in the Greytown area of New Zealand which I frequently visited, I tried to recreate one. It's not an exact replica of the picture. It is an old two-bedroomed house with a narrow hallway, lounge, kitchen/dining and one bathroom. A small garden and seating outside complete this furnished 2x2 lot, with room to expand. The only cc are two recolours of existing Maxis wide wood panel walls.






Lot Size: 2x2
Lot Price (furnished): 38,374

Custom Content by Me:
- Brown recolour of wide wood panel wall
- White recolour of wide wood panel wall

Number of bedrooms: 2 Bedrooms
Custom Content Included: Build content only
Furnishings: Fully Furnished
Special Flags: Not Applicable

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

What a cutie. But doesn't the hallway cause routing issues?

If you remember me, I'm awesome!

Unfurnished but with floor and wall treatment for bathroom it comes in at around 16200 simoleans. Possible as a starter but would have to have bare-bones furnishing.

Pretty house, though. Thank you!

That's the risk I took for making the house as authentic as possible. If I'd widened the hallway the facade would have been too wide. It's an ideal residence for a single Sim.

Thanks! Next time I might offer an unfurnished version.

Super cute house. I plopped a couple and a cat in and playtested it for a Sim day or so and no pathing issues came up either. I even locked all other doors so they had to use the front door and none of them minded! Thanks!

(I did have to add a kitchen sink, since I'm weird like that lol)

I live in Greytown NZ and that's a very good replica of some of the cottages in this area. Never in a million years did I think I'd find something from my neck of the woods on MTS2.
