Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Built with Numenor's *BaseGameStarterPro*

Potter’s Grove is a shopping district where everything is peaceful and has it’s own place, in other words, a utopia. All of the citizens are fun-loving and idyllic people, perfect people in their own rights. The neighborhood houses lots both young and old, residential and commercial, and in the country and craftsman styles. Our story continues with
The Crafty Victorian

The Crafty Victorian is an aged and antique Victorian-styled home fused with the Potter's Grove signature country-craftsman style. The exterior boasts massive curb appeal, but is also very low maintenance with many of the plants being strictly decorative.

Aside from the curb appeal, the architectural details are what mark this home as a landmark. It features 2 separate exterior, but covered porches, as well as 2 covered balconies. The front porch includes space for a morning cup of coffee, and the back porch offers a place to host a small dinner party. The balconies off of the second floor are another way to enjoy the outdoors.

The interior is decorated in authentic Victorian wallpapers, with a country-craftsman twist. The furnishings were chosen carefully to both fit the theme and space, and most importantly, comfort. You will find a very open floorplan, along with 1 bedroom and 2 full bathrooms.

In total, the home comes to a value of $84,454. A very affordable home for a family just celebrating a promotion.


Lot Size: 2x2

Very beautiful work, Kid! Everyone loves a Victorian Style Home and this is a fine example. Not sure about the "roof" over the second story balcony, though. Great pics, too, and thanks for sharing!

I love to view Victorians and this one looks authentic, I hope you decide to do more Victorians in the future.

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.
