Highland Avenue Hideaway

Well, this is the house that “Cellular” built- or rather, the house that the movie “Cellular” inspired me to build. This is a detour from my usual “modern, green, minimal” homes that I’m a fan of. But, the home resonated with my aesthetics. It's charming and elegant with a touch of vintage. How could I not be inspired to build it?

This picture was the only reference I had to go on so I took liberties with the interior. But, I like the way it turned out; luxurious, yet simple, interiors, beautiful landscaping.... My sims and I are very happy with it.

The home is actually located in Westwood, an upscale neighborhood in southern California. Highland Avenue is in a completely different neighborhood-Highland Park...another affluent suburb of Los Angeles that was very much associated with Hollywood back in the 50’s. As far as the name...I just liked the way “Highland Avenue Hideaway” sounded. Enough of my trivial bantar. Here's the home. I hope you like it.
