Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.


Finally I was able to make the Goth mansion look the way it should have looked originally! The Second Empire style suits it perfectly, maybe this is sort of what EA had in mind when they originally built the house, who knows.





The only changes inside are the enlarged attic (thanks to the new roof) and a few minor furniture changes because of the windows.

Some pictures of the inside furnishings and the "before" picture:


Only the base game and the Mansion & Garden Stuff Pack is required.

Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price: $140,342

Additional Credits:
Thanks to gethane for the Lake Crossing neighbourhood which I use to model a lot of my lots! I can always find a nice view in Lake Crossing.

And thanks to Maxis for making this house in the first place, then finally getting around to making the rest of it!

Number of bedrooms: 3 Bedrooms
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Fully Furnished
Special Flags: Not Applicable

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

You've done an amazing job with the Goth Mansion.
This is a classic example of why our modders are important to us. They think outside of the Sims box.
Thank you so much for sharing with the rest of us.

Hey! I love this download and I'm trying to recreate my own because my Goth Mansion is already decorated how I want it so I don't want to replace it and redecorate the inside. I'm doing pretty good so far, I see a few things I need to adjust but I'm wondering... How did you get it to go up another flight to add the railing to the very top? Mine does not go up that far.

This is fantastic. My ingame Goth mansion lot had just become corrupt and I had no option than to move out the family and bulldoze the lot. I'm so glad I found this so I can move them back into an upgraded version of the original. thanks a million!

This is truly a beauty. I have tried re-doing the Goth house myself, placing it on a slightly larger lot (to make room for a pool, a greenhouse and a garage). I love this one and my Goths may be moving.

Thanks for the upgrade.

First of all let me say, this is great and I would really love to have it in my game. For some reason however, it is not showing up. I have all games from base to Apartment Life, and I have Family Fun Stuff, Glamor Life, Celebration Stuff, and Mansion and Garden Stuff. I am very familiar with custom content, and I was just wondering if anyone might have an idea why it may not be showing up. Again, this is great, and I love what you have done with it, Maxis houses always seem so odd to me so it's awesome to see what you have done here Thanks!

I really don't know why it wouldn't be showing up for you - it doesn't have any CC and should only require M&G stuff. All I can think of to suggest is to try installing it using the Sims2Pack Clean Installer if you haven't already. If you have, maybe try installing it WITHOUT the clean installer? This is all guesswork on my part, though. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Whoah, I think I love you!

Thank you so much for this excellent remake of the Goth House! I've recently just begun to play them again (big thanks to the person who made the Superhood!), and that boring old house made me sad. Old Morty deserves some style. ;-)

Many thanks!

I don't suppose that there's any way to actually physically *replace* the default Goth mansion with this mod? Some kind of code I can give it?

This upload is fully furnished, just like the original Goth mansion.

It also has a newspaper on the front lawn, but appears to be clean.
