Do your sims want to be able to say that they live in a mansion but they don’t quite have the funds to buy one? Here’s a big house that they might be able to rent half of, which I guess is close enough.

This big suburban house actually consists of two mirror apartments, each with its underground garage.
No CC was used, I have all packs except IKEA stuff.
The rent is §4,363 for the left apartment and §4,274 for the right one.
The way I furnished them they only have one bathroom each, but in both cases the toilet and bath/shower are separate and accessible independently (so one sim can pee while someone is in the shower without privacy issues).

Both apartments are fully furnished.
I intended the one on the left for two flatmates who play in a band (one of them is also into tinkering). There’s room enough for them to invite over their other bandmates to hang out and play together (I imagine the upstairs office is their makeshift recording studio).
The apartment on the right is suited for a family of four. The parents used to travel a lot but ended up settling down when they had their kids. Their home still reflects their love of colorful exotic birds.

The game won’t let you rent fully furnished apartments by default. To rent an apartment fully furnished, there are two options that I know of:
- once your household is on the lot, activate testingcheats and shift+click on the door of the apartment you want. You should have the option to “rent furnished”;
- or you can download Pescado’s apartment hack, which will give you that option without the need for testingcheats, on top of other features and fixes.

Number of bedrooms: 3 Bedrooms
Custom Content Included: None
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.
