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 use this in ALL of my houses unless I am trying to keep them under a certain price. I love them. Would a 1 tile archway be possible? I have tried matching in game single arches but they are all a bit shorter and look awkward with the doors.

These are absolutely wonderful. I was wondering if you maybe could change the gold to some form of silver. I know it is a bit late for sims 2 but I just recently went back to sims 2 and about a year ago found out about modding.

These are wonderul!

I've used them for a couple of days, and at first they seemed to work fine. But today I wanted to place a singletiled window without shutter on a diagonal wall. Placing it works fine, but it shows gaps on all sides exept below the window..
Does this happen to a lot of you who use these windows?

Mabye I've downloaded something else that interfears with your windows.. Or mabye I was just so excited from the beginning that I didn't see it..
Anyway, if you know something that ruins the diagonal windows, or something I can do to fix it, please reply. I really want these beautiful windows to work out

Edit: Removed all my other windows from the download folder, and now the small 1-tiled windows are fine on diagonal walls, but the long ones still leave a gap on top of them...

I love this set and I use it a lot - actually it might be one of my most used downloads of all time - but I have one annoyance with it as I've used it over time. There isn't a window short enough to be used in conjunction with kitchen counters. I'm always forced to use something different in the kitchen, which I don't always find easy to do in a strict "Georgian" themed style of a house.

Why isin't there a single-space arch? It would be really useful.
