Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
So, I got a request to do this home from babiefalenangel over at TS2, and I finally got working on it a few days ago. I tried to replicate the house pretty accurately (which is terribly frustrating without using custom content).

The house is on a beach lot and has 3 bedrooms and 3.25 baths. There are great views from all three levels and multi-level stairs as well. Enter the foyer to be greeted by cheery red walls, go further ahead to come to the entertaining room. This is a great room to hang out with the family and watch some TV or relax after swimming in the ocean! The kid's room is on this level, along with a full bath. The garage is attached to the house and is accessed from the foyer. Off the garage is the "fishing" room (I made this into an office).

On the second level is the gourmet kitchen, dining room and family room. On this level is also the guest bedroom with it's great green walls and black furniture. The guest bath is beautiful with steam shower and separate tub - also, let's not forget the dual sinks. There's a large balcony off this level with great views of the ocean.

The third level is wonderfully secluded and has the master suite, master bath and coffee area. The master suite has two private balconies and a large master bath. The bath has a separate steam shower / tub area and a separate duel sink area. There's also a toilet closet and regular "closet".

WOW! This HGTV Dream Home has NO CC or HACKS! Move your sims in and have them start living their very own dream (HGTV style that is).

As always, remember to check out my other houses when you get a chance!

  • 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.

Amazing house! Thank you!

Sims is just fun and every custom content should be available for FREE.

Awesome! I've been looking for a new house to download, particularly a beach lot, and I prefer lots without CC. I like CC content for build mode, but I prefer to install it myself, in sets, rather than in the small bits that often come with lots. Anyway, this looks amazing, and I can't wait to try it out.

Well done. I undertook this project myself a few months back but quit out of frustration with the stairs. I tried making them two wide as I hate stupid Sims getting stuck on a floor because someone else is using the stairs. I created a problem with CFE and couldn't get it fixed.

Completer sets help me feel complete!
