Versailles - King's Kitchen Garden by Tatiana

This is a 5x5 lot (4br/4ba) valued at $356,772 and comes fully furnished including a growing garden.
This specific package has been played/tested for 4 sim days.
It requires everything up to & including Bon Voyage.

Many thanks to all of the talented artists who's inspiring cc contributed so much to this lot.



When Louis XIV, the Sun King, demanded a kitchen garden or "Potager du Roi" befitting his palace of Versailles no expense was spared in providing it for him. The king, a great amateur of gardens, wanted his fruit and vegetable paradise close to the chateau so that he could inspect it at will and enjoy its beauty.

Designed by Jean-Baptiste Le Quintinie, the garden resides in a courtyard and consists of 16 beds surrounded by a flowering terrace. The use of walls & multi-level terraces creates a warm micro-climate where exotic species can be nurtured throughout the year.

Don't let the name fool you, this is a working farm of the grandest proportions. I had 5 sims, each with a minimum of a silver talent badge, labouring night and day to keep everything in order. The "fruits" of their labours are included on the lot.

The home is built to accomodate a large family and contains all the amenities, just in case the king happens to drop by.

I highly recommend Paladin's Gardening Controllers and Packing Stations to turn this into a thriving home business. I did not include these objects in the lot but I did use them during my game play.

This lot is part of my Estates of Versailles collection.

I had a wonderful time creating & playing this lot. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do.
