Apartment re-uploaded with the missing inside garage doors added. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I had a hankering to build a lot that was like an inclusive community, where sims could live, shop, have fun and socialize.

We do ask you to keep left on the traffic roundabout as this is Australia.

This is an exclusive community with the prices on the apartments reflecting that. No riffraff here thank you! Suitable for an upcoming film star or politician wanting privacy but not isolation. the prices will cripple anyone without an extreamly good job. Even so the management did place a row of solar panels hidden behind the shops to offset some of the costs.
The houses down the side road are mirror imaged next to each other. The floor plans are the same but each is decorated in it's own style but the management of the gated community wanted the outsides to match, so the gardens and colours are the same with alternating cream and grey brick.

There is a huge amount of photos.

Shop and Gym

I made this so it would work with MogHughson's Apartments and Shopping on the same Lot. You will need to download this seperatly. Once installed the lot will spawn three NPC's, one on the espresso bar and two on the cash registers.

The gym has treadmills where you can spy on your neighbors coming and going, work out machines, punching bags, toilet and shower, an espresso bar and seating so you can drink coffee and gossip about what you just saw while on the treadmill.

Downstairs is the clothing shop and convenience store.
Sims can buy clothing, groceries, pet collars, magazines, games and small electronics.

Outside Recreation Area

This has a BBQ area with a fire alarm.
A pool with slide
A chess table and Charisma putter
Play ground with a basket ball hoop.

Apartment and residential
I decided to upload this as both an apartment and as a residential lot. While both are nearly the same the apartment had certain demands that made the management alter a few things. The residential lot has the great divide floor fence as kitchen edging, this was taken off in the apartment lot as sims will not understand that they have a kitchen. They may be wealthy but they are not any brighter! The residential version has split modular stairs which made the apartment think the top floor was communal area, so they were made straight and the built in closet removed. While apartment dwellers may miss out on some closet woohoo they do get to shop if you use MogHughson's Apartments and Shopping mod. NPC's do not spawn on the residential lot but a sim can open it as a home business and hire staff. Home bushiness can not be run on apartment lots.
As a residential lot your sim will pay $622,470
Cars teleport out to the road.

The Houses/Apartments

These are roomy houses with a large master bedroom and two smaller bedrooms.
Two full bathrooms and one half bath.
Off the master bedroom is a small room; in two of the houses this is an office, in one a sewing room and in the fourth a small nursery.
Each has it's own garage with connecting door and private backyard.

House One- Bohemian

House Two-Retro

House Three- Red and White

House Four-Turquoise/Brown/Pink

Suggested Mods
Apartments and Shopping, on the same Lot by MogHughson
Due to the amount and placement of some of the flowers I would recommend one or more gardening mods that you can find here:
Lunatech 'Lighten Up' Ceiling Light Fix by Menaceman44 so the red and white house lights sit flush with the ceiling.

Play tested by The Goodie's and Newson's but I did not check the backyard on the apartments so let me know if there is any trouble with that.
No sims have been in the uploaded lots
CC free
Mods please let me know if this amount of photos is okay to have.

Lot Size: 6x6
Lot Price: $6,158- $6,951
