Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
The house with a lot of flow. Open floor plans and limited doors make for an easy house to live in. Split level with plenty of light. Two bedroom and two bath with plentiful living space around the fireplace. Lofty interior with open two story hallway overlooking main living area. Completely furnished in stylish matching woods and metals. Outside is fully landscaped with a tropical feel around the pool. Extra space on the roof. No custom content. Inspired by one of my favorite real life houses.

Hope you enjoy my first Sims 3 house!

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.

Absolutely wonderful! Thank you so much! This is exactly my style

May I ask, how do I get my sim to move into it please? How do I access a d/l'd house once I'm in the game?

@Simosity: go to EDIT TOWN, you can find custom houses there. but you have to place it at the right LOT location though... or it will look weird if you place it on other lots..

Default Luv it!
I'm not gonna kill your sims...I have a better idea, I'm gonna send them to work every day (milk the money) while my sims can enjoy their life. J/k I'll keep them in my game cause you have done such WONDERFUL job It's an honor for me to take care of them.

Thank you so much!

Love the house. One of the best so fare. Have a question though. In some of your pics, when you're in the house at ground level, you can see the upper level. I can see some ceilings but what should be part of the upper floor interior, I see sky.

Is this a setting that needs to be checked? I've gone through the options and have every thing set to max and object hiding unchecked.

Thanks.

I do happen to have same problem. I have successfully installed like a half a dozen of houses, but this one doesn't work, doh. I did re-install the house multiple times and it still fails to load up in the house library.

Can anyone help? I really do love this house XD

It took me a while to find it too. Then remembered the creator said there was a family in the house. So I looked in the family bin and there's the house. Just place the lot then evict them.
