This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
My favorite style of architecture is Georgian, and with set, I decided to do a modern take on it.

Contained in this set is all you need to make your sims their very own Modern Georgian Manor.

For those unfamiliar with Georgian Architecture, it's named for the four monarchs of England named George that ruled during the height of this style's popularity during the 18th and 19th century (and NOT for the state of Georgia). Mostly Georgian-style has alot of balance and symmetry on the facade. You could actually draw an axis righ down the center of Georgian structures and each side would match the other exactly.

The Modern Georgian Manor Set is a re-imagining of the very first build set I did for TS1 which had alot of Georgian influences in it.

I am adding my standard disclaimer to this set: Due to the ornate nature of this set, there are very high poly counts!.
I'm not in the business of creating simplistic designs, so when you think of me, think of HIGH POLY COUNTS!

Each door features gold hardware accents, with the entry door featuring a kickplate, door knocker and peephole.

There are 6 doors and 4 windows to this set. Poly counts are in parenthesis:

arched window (2864)

palladian window (3808)

shuttered window (1476)

tall shuttered window (1587)

main entry door (3144)

double door set (2264)

french double door set (2296)

interior door (1652)

interior french door (1448)

2-tile doorway (732)


All the windows and doors are slaves to the SHORT SHUTTERED WINDOW and the ENTRY DOOR. Deleting either of these from your downloads folder will remove all the color options for the other doors and windows!

The frame of each window and door comes with 5 built-in color options (meaning you should try to delete any of them), and the shutters and main entry door also have 5 extra options of their own.









Note: if you plan to recolor any of the doors or windows for this set, you will have to recolor the repository objects (the SHORT SHUTTERED WINDOW and ENTRY DOOR), Since all the other windows and doors take their textures from these two items. Recoloring individual windows or doors will NOT work!
(Recolor templates coming soon)

Uh-oh, I forgot my terms of use

Please feel free to recolor this set, but do not host the actual files anywhere else. Please simply link back to this thread and allow users to download the actual set from here. If you'd like to include these pieces in a lot, that's fine, so long as they are NOT uploaded to ANY paysite (w/the exception of TSR). Please also give me full credit and a link back. Thanks.

I am NOT allowing this set to be cloned, hacked, or uploaded to the exchange.

Edit: Alot of people are asking me to upload the house I used in the pictures. The house is just a shell and doesn't have anything in it except the rooms I photographed (I actually had to delete the study to build the kitchen "set"), so uploading it would be sort of pointless

This set was a toughie, so let me know what you think! (comments, questions , problems, etc)

This is wonderful! Georgian is a common architecture style where I currently live and would love to move into the vacant one next door to me.

(ooh, which family should I move into this house... let's see..)

Very nice work. It reminds me of some of the old farm houses that still survive here in New York that unfortunatly get torn down for more modern structures all too often.

Thank you so much for this set. It's absolutely stunning.

I would like to let you know that the double archway goes a little screwy when placed on a diagonal wall, tho.

Any chance we can get the windows without the shutters? I need single windows for my wrap-around kitchen.

Phoenix Phaerie, could I be really cheeky and ask if you could possibly make a 3-tile version of the window pictured in georgian3.jpg? Pretty please!

(Sorry my architectural knowledge is pretty limited so I'm not sure if thats the Palladian window or not). I think this set is absolutely beautiful and it is perfect for the new neighbourhood I'm currently working on.

I'd love to do a 3-tile version...eventually. Unfortunately I don't have OFB yet, so I can only make 2-tile windows.

It would be great if you could make the windows without the shutters also. Thanks again for this wonderful set!
