Have your simmies been workin' hard for their money? Well, let them show it off a little!

The brochure reads: A house to be looked at and lived in -- that's what this impressively formal French Provincial adaptation represents. The front court, just inside the brick wall with its attractive iron gate, sets the patterns of formality that are so apparent inside...

This house is based on actual real-life floor plans - Design #V11797 from a blueprint "collection" book by Home Planners, Inc. (circa 1984.)

If I lived here in RL, I would spend ALL my time in the back yard! Oh man, pour me a cold one and let me float

Please scroll through all the above pictures to see everything this property has to offer...
This lot has been play-tested; everything is accessible and in good working order. Invisible smoke alarms are under the range hood in the kitchen, over the fireplace, and at the outside grill. The phone is on the wall in the kitchen, and the burglar alarm is by the front door. The furniture and decorations are intentionally sparse - everything for your Sim's basic needs is included. Please personalize it to meet your sims whims.

This is a clean copy if the lot - no Sim has set foot in it. The package has been cleaned with both Mootilda's Clean Installer and Chris Hatch's Lot Compressor and then double checked with SimPE - it's as squeaky as they come!

Necessary, and NOT included - GO get them:
Backless Tub/Shower by HL @ MTS2
Invisible Driveway by SophieDavid @ MTS2
1T Tall and the 3T La Fenetre Picture Window by tbudgett @ MTS2
La Fenetre Bay Window by tbudgett @ MTS2
Lifestyle Build Bundle - It's the second link in the top post - extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY. I used wallpapers and floors from this set.

You may also need: Perfect Plants or Perfect Gardens from Simbology, as I'm not sure all the plants in the courtyard are accessible.

Standard mods I use that are not necessary nor included - but were probably used whilst building/photo-ing/prepping this house for upload...
I use Moi's Roof Shader for brighter roofs
Maranatah's White Wall Top texture replacement
Moo's Turn On/Off Lights
Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix
BeosBoxBoy's no-red-pause-mod
I also use FRAPs to take in-game pictures, and PhotoShop to clean/collage said pictures.
And, I highly recommend using gummilutt's Invisible Medicine Cabinet to add features to any mirror - as per her policy, it's not used or included in this lot.
