This home can't help but catch your sims fancy, especially if they are part of an active family whose activities tend to spill outdoors. A wraparound front porch and three rear porches, one of them screened, offer lots of space for entertaining friends or just sitting and reading in the sunshine. Inside, a magnificent kitchen with an island counter and loads of counter and shelf space. It opens to a large, informal dining area and a hearth-warmed keeping room with French doors to the rear. A study has French-door access to the front porch. The master bedroom in enhanced by access to a small rear porch. Three upstairs bedrooms also have their own baths. Surrounded by lovely rocked-edged gardens, a basment and a double garage, this home also comes fully furnished (built on a 36x 47 lot, the little lot near a park at the base of the mountains in Sunset Valley).

*lower floor:
1 x family/games room

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
