The Burlington

Named after the large tree in the backyard, this modest home can accommodate a family of four (or more, if you include the basement space for a particularly, ermm... eccentric family member).

The home may look compact, but features living on four floors - the full first and second levels, an attic, and a basement - and some lively furnishings. The first floor is an open plan, with a spacious family / communal space with plenty of hobby objects, dining area, and a newly renovated galley kitchen. A full bathroom rounds out the first floor. Upstairs you'll find the master bedroom with on-suite bathroom (with walk-in shower and tub), a child's bedroom, detached full bath with laundry. The attic includes a bedroom and another bathroom, likely a room for that brooding teenager who needs more space.

If you feel inclined, you can even have a sim stay in the basement, whether a relative with some bizarre interests, or a guest spending the night. There is a Murphy bed, a workbench, fridge, microwave, and sink, and even a radio transmitter. We'll let you decide what to do with that...

The back patio is small but practical, but a grill, table, and hot tub in the enclosed space. Outside the gates, sims can use the yard and a telescope under the large Burlington Bushblossom tree that gives the house its name.

Important Lot Info:
I built this house in Twinbrook. It is perfectly flat and can be placed anywhere, but if you want to replicate the look and feel, you'll want to use that neighborhood.

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 really cute! Not too cramped, either, for a smaller house.

I love this, but unfortunately the fence/railing from Anulaa89 is no longer available, and she hasn't got the file either =( Do you have it saved somewhere, or know where I can possibly download it? Thanks! I'd love to use this house in my game =(
