Countryside Collection: French Country Series


The Countryside Collection includes 4 sets of country styled lots. Each set has 4 houses in it. The houses vary in lot size and design. The French Country Series includes 4 French Country homes: The Orleans, The Grenoble, The Bordeaux and The Marseille. I drew inspiration from the French Country style and used the names of cities in France to represent each house. This download includes 4 lots all created on small sized lots. I leave decorating these lots up to individual tastes! These lots are from my old collection of lots, but have been remodeled and/or updated to include Expansion pack items and be more Sim friendly.


The Orleans:

RESIDENTIAL LOT / 3 x 1 Lot / Unfurnished / §22,034 / 2 Stories / 1 Car Carport / Living Room / Dining Room / Kitchen / 1 Bedroom / 2 Bathrooms

The Grenoble:

RESIDENTIAL LOT / 2 x 2 Lot / Unfurnished / §45,250/ 2 Stories / 1 Car Garage (with Gameroom Above) / 1 Bedroom / 2.5 Bathrooms / Living Room & Kitchen/ Family Room

The Bordeaux:

RESIDENTIAL LOT / 3 x 3 Lot / Unfurnished / §113,455 / 2 Stories (PLUS Basement) / 2 Car Garage (with Guest Suite Above) / Covered Porch Entrance / 2 Bedroom Suites with 1 Small Extra Room each / 4 Bathrooms / Living Room / Dining Room / Kitchen / Family Room (Sun Room leading to Basement) / Downstairs Study

The Marseille:

RESIDENTIAL LOT / 4 x 3 Lot / Unfurnished / §145,506 / 3 Stories / 1 Car Garage (Extended Driveway) / Spacious Kitchen & Dining Room / Stairwell Hall Entrance / Family Room / Sitting Room or Office / Music Room / Art Studio / 3 Bedrooms / 3.5 Bathrooms / Swimming Pool

Note: This series is slightly larger than the permitted size for uploading zips. I will not be able to zip the entire French Country set!


Other Information:

Thank you to the following artists for helping to bring this Sim lot to life: Xrax, Mzcynnamon, Windkeeper, Macarossi, Phoenix_Phaerie, Shufonk and Senesi2003. Be sure to browse the links at the end of the post for other fabulous downloads by each artist!

There are certain recolors or bedding that do not automatically zip in Sims2Packs. As a result, I have included the door recolors in the Bordeaux zip. Be sure to add these items to your downloads folder BEFORE entering the lots.
- Game Based White Door Recolors by senesi2003

As of January 2008 all stephanie b. lots will use the original Sims 2 game and the core Expansion Packs. No STUFF Packs were used to create the downloads included here.

All stephanie b. walls, floors and ground covers included in houses downloaded from MTS2 can be used in lot creations on any free or pay site as long as I receive credit for the textures. Please do not post my textures (walls, floors or groundcovers) or lots on other sites without my permission or reupload them as your own by giving them face-lifts without giving me credit for the original design. Thank you!

Enjoy the downloads!
