Here is another sprawling house for your hard workin' sims...

The brochure reads: Another interesting and charming L-shaped one-story. This time with Tudor exterior styling. Contributing to the pleasing eye-appeal are the varying roof planes... and that dramatic front door with it's surrounding glass area.

This house is based on actual real-life floor plans - Design #V12961 from a blueprint "collection" book by Home Planners, Inc. (circa 1984.)
As I was trying to use as little CC as possible, some of the "Tudor styling" the brochure mentions is reduced to Tudor-esque windows.

Please scroll through all the above pictures to see everything this property has to offer...
This lot has been play-tested; everything is accessible and in good working order. Invisible smoke alarms are under the range hood in the kitchen, over the two fireplaces, and at the outside grill. The phone is on the wall in the kitchen, and the burglar alarm is by the front door. The house is fully furnished; but decorations are intentionally sparse. Everything for your Sim's basic needs is included, please personalize it to meet your sims whims.

This is a clean copy if the lot - no Sim has set foot in it. The package has been cleaned with both Mootilda's Clean Installer and Chris Hatch's Lot Compressor and then double checked with SimPE - it's as squeaky as they come!

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

BeosBoxBoy's no-red-pause-mod
I also use FRAPs to take in-game pictures, and PhotoShop to clean/collage said pictures.
And, I highly recommend using gummilutt's Invisible Medicine Cabinet to add features to any mirror - as per her policy, it's not used or included in this lot.
