Welcome to

Do your sims have visions of grandeur? Do they dress for success? Want to be the talk of the neighborhood?
Need to own their own place palace?

This lot is sparsely furnished, though everything your sim needs is included ~ It is "Move-In" ready! There are alarms, phones, appliances, plumbing, beds, and a dining table... The "decorations", however, are nill. Your sim can customize and add whatever they want This also helps to keep the cost down, so they can move in sooner rather than later. If you remove the expensive Courtyard Fencing from the lot perimeter, you'll bring the cost down to a fairly reasonable $116K. As you can see from the Lot Overview picture below - the house isn't really all that big; It's really just a facade!

No sim has ever lived here. This is a clean copy. The original house has been play-tested. There are NO routing issues. Cars may disappear (teleport) when entering and exiting the driveway, but they'll still work. Enjoy!

Necessary, and NOT included - GO get them:
Numenor's Unlevel Wall - #90 is a MUST for this lot's facade!
The Lifestyle Build Bundle extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY - many of the walls/floors are from this bundle.
TS2 Store Art Nouveaulicious Set now housed at GoS - for the dining chairs and pendant lights.
CS-plants: Crotons and SpiderLillies extracted by Havelock at MATY.
Castaway Stories Bougainvillea by Honeywell @ LeeFish
Spaik's Corner Stairs slaved by HugeLunatic @ Sims2Artists
Invisible Driveway by Sophie-David @ MTS

Standard mods I use that are not necessary nor included - but were probably used whilst building/photo-ing/prepping this house for upload...
I use Moi's Roof Shader for brighter roofs.
Maranatah's White Wall Top texture replacement.
Moo's Turn On/Off Lights.
Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix.
BeosBoxBoy's no-red-pause-mod.
I recommend Gummilutt's Invisible Medicine Cabinet so any bathroom mirror will work.
I also use FRAPs to take in-game pictures, and PhotoShop to clean/collage said pictures.

Lot Size: 4x6
Lot Price (furnished): $141,486

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract: Use WinRAR (Windows) or Stuffit (Mac) to extract the .sims2pack file(s) from the .rar or .zip file(s).

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.
