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)

I have downloaded this and I don't know if it's because I have the Pets expansion or not, but the windows flash blue T__T is there something I can download to fix?

Did you delete the shorter shutter window? YOU CANNOT DELETE THAT FILE because it contains the color information for ALL windows. You also cannot delete the entry door because it has the color information for all doors.

If it would not be too much trouble would it be possible to make a 2 tile shuttered window and a 3 tile shuttered window? I am making a house that needs both, I have something now that can work but it just does not look right. I am using the rest of this set for the house.

Thanks!!!!

the doors work fine, the only windows that seem to be messing up are the arched window and the large shutter? i think lol, I downloaded the harvard house that uses these windows, when I saw they were messed up I downloaded the zip file straight from here...

I'll try downloading the zip again after I delete them.

I don't know how, or why, but the windows (as well as my other old custom objects that worked fine pre-pets) are working fine now. I didn't change anything lol Guess it just took some time for it to kick in or something?

Anyways lovely set, I love it!

I have no control over which way the door opens. The game designates what side of the door is the "outside" and what is the "inside".

But even if I could change it, I wouldn't do it anyway. This set was alot of work and it's too much for me to go back to it over something unnecessary. Sorry.
