Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hi! This is my manor type duplex. Both appartments have four floors and they share the dining area and backyard. I know it´s a bit unusual to put a dining area as joined, but I wanted to make somenthing different and make sure sims don´t get lonely.

Now some basick info:

Lot size: 4x5
Prize: 251 240.

Floors: Four, if you include the floor with carage and foyer.
The appartment on the right has furnitures. Left side has not.

Rooms per appartment

-Bedrooms: Mastersuite + three smaller ones.
-Bathrooms: Three.
-Kitchen: One.
-Dining: One
-Livingroom: One.
-Walkin closets: Two.
-Special rooms: Carage, gym, library and a large hobbyroom.

(Plus there is also a swimmingpool and a greenhouse for your sims. The greenhouse will need a different roof if you have seasons. By the way I made a small picknick place by the pool. It´s hidden under the trees).

EP´s needed: None! This house was made with BGS.
SP´s needed: None!
CC´s needed: SimpleSpiralStairs by Marvine + the animation for them.

You can find the SpiralStairs from here:

P.S Because this house is so large I tested a copy of this in my game. No huge problems was found. There is some lag when you are entering in the lot. But none when you are playing. Largets number of sims at the same time in my test was six sims. (Dad, two children and their guests). I tested this house for about one simweek.

Copy of this lot was tested with:

AMD Athlon
Windows XP
1,66 GHz
768 MB of RAM

Lot Size: 4x5
Lot Price: 251240

  • 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.

What a lovely, fine home for a sim family moving up in the world. This is perfect for my patriarchal sims.
