This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Halloween is not complete without a haunted Victorian. Widbode comes fully furnished, with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, formal dining area, formal living area and a perfectly unkept yard. All this can be yours on a 3x5 lot for under $185,000. No Expansion Packs required. As always, I hope you and your Sims enjoy!

Custom walls, floors and terrains were used in this home, all custom content has been created by me
This house was checked with the Clean Installer prior to upload.

Happy Halloween!
~Christine~

Love will humiliate you and hate will cradle you.
Jealousy would be far less torturous if we understood that love is a passion entirely unrelated to our merits.

did you put some kind of hack to make it haunted? Because While I was playing with my family in it and I saw something moving and there were these three voodoo-esc dolls juggling in mid air, but there are no graves!

Um, no, The only custom content is walls, floors and terrains. Perhaps you have some sort of hack in your game or there is a glitch?

I NEVER comment on things, but I had to on this...I am so in love with this. I've been looking for the perfect haunted Victorian for my ghost-loving Sims...this is it! And I agree with everyone...those custom walls and floors are just breathtaking. Are they based on any real walpaper you've seen, or totally your own creations? Either way, I bow to your creativity!

Oh wow, this house is simply fabulous! I needed something gothic looking for my new Goth sisters, but I wanted something with an elegant look also. This house fits the bill perfectly, thanks!

So, it's not really haunted at all? Dang. And here I was hoping for ghosts. XP
It's a great house though. Well done.

I really LOVE this house, thanks for sharing it!

A question tho, there are some parts of the roof (slanted areas) that I can't change the tiles, is this unchangeable or am I just being a newbie?

The slanted areas of the roof are floor tiles that I used the boolprop constrainfloorelvation cheat to build. You could change these but it would mean taking the railing away that borders the top of the roof and make sure you have the same tile on the "flat" areas of the roof as the slanted. Pick a new floor tile and use the shift key to place it on the flat surface and this should change all the tiles.

This house is just lovely! It's rare to find an expansion-free lot where both inside and outside are so thoughtfully done, with such detail!

It installed with no problems, I really love it.
