Luxury and elegance are redefined by Milano, an exquisite Mediterranean villa that combines state-of-the-art amenities with Old World details. This breathtaking home is a place of relaxation and comfort unlike any other. It offers unique design elements, such as glass walls, outdoor living spaces, and a stunning open floor plan that combine to create a seamless transition with the beautiful outdoor grounds. Come take the tour and see why Milano is the perfect retreat from everyday life.

This is the sixth house in the Mediterranean series, and there are more in the works.

Furnished: Yes

Milano's lush landscaping complements the villa's unique design.


Milano's exquisite furnishings and unique architecture set a new standard in luxurious living.

YOU WILL NEED THE CEP (Color Enabler Package), if you don't already have it installed, to use the paintings. Get it here:

http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=92541

You will need University, Nightlife, Open For Business, Pets, Glamour Life Stuff, Family Fun Stuff, and Seasons to play this house!

WARNING: This house is HUGE! It contains a lot of graphics-intensive items, embedded objects, special lighting effects, advanced building techniques, etc. Be advised that it may make your computer run slowly (or even crash your game if your computer can't handle it.) Be careful when trying this house for the first time, and I would suggest turning your graphics options down to the minimum until you know how this house will run. You can reduce some of the landscaping and mirrors, which will help improve your computer's perfomance if you are having trouble.

NOTE: The one-tile stone fireplace in the 1st floor leisure room is not usable due to its placement along a diagonal wall. It is purely for show. All other pieces of diagonal or specially placed furniture have been carefully playtested, and they all work correctly.

Installation Instructions for the Paintings:
You MUST install the paintings for them to work properly! Simply extract the files from the two Paintings zips to your Downloads folder, and you are ready to play. Be sure that you use BOTH files--I had to split the paintings into two files in order the keep the download size small.

My Policy:
Feel free to use or modify any of my house designs, but only for personal use! Please do not upload them to other sites. And please don't modify my stuff and then try to upload it as your own--I often spend days at a time working on a really big project and take great pride in my work.

As for the custom paintings I have created for this house, you may use them however you like, as long as it isn't for commercial purposes, and under the condition that you give credit and a link back to my profile page at Mod the Sims 2.

Be sure to check my profile page here for news and updates about my work. Thanks!

Enjoy!
