Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is my first upload to this site so I hope it's not complete crap. I was slightly inspired to construct this by the many homes in Alpharetta/Roswell, GA. Having lived there for many years, most of the family homes are 5+ bedrooms and I figured it was time I treated my Sims to the same luxury. The rooms in the home go as follows..

Main Home
  1. 4 Bedrooms
  2. 5 Bathrooms
  3. 7 Living Areas
  4. 1 Dining Room
  5. 1 Kitchen
  6. 1 Office
Garage
  1. 2 Bedrooms
  2. 1 Bathroom
  3. 1 Kitchen/Breakfast Bar
  4. 3 Car slots
Rest of Lot
  1. 2 Pools
  2. 1 Maze Garden
  3. 1 Pond incl/small garden
  4. 1 Tropical Indoor Garden
  5. Fully Landscaped Property

Lot: 60x60
Furnished Cost: 351,403
Unfurnished Cost: 233,109

Lot Size: 6x6
Lot Price: 351,403

Additional Credits:

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.

lol thanks, I left out one thing though which I'm currently revising. I'm teiring the yard downwards to add a completed cellar floor that opens to the back yard. I forgot how common that is, everywhere near GA400 really.

Thank you kindly, the funny thing is I'm using it as my main Sim's home and he's single -__- But anyhow, it loads just fine for me but... but my computer is a little.... overly extreme? So to be honest, I'm really not sure how it loads on a normal computer :X

Thanks to both you and Jill and yes, about finished with a few small revisions to this current one and also waiting on a modern style one to finish approval so it should be ready for download on the site within 24 hoursish?

This house is amazing. I to only have 1 sim currently living in it but I was looking for something modern and huge like a mansion. I can't wait for your other houses or anything you make. Thanx for saving me hours of frustration trying to build something so perfect.

Not really sure to be honest, it may be due to just that. It is quite large so that could cause some issues if your computer barely meets the minimum requirements, what are your specs?

And to Hockey, it's ironic that you mention it because a wine cellar is actually one of the revisions I'm adding amongst other things, namely some improved landscaping, custom floors and whatnot.

Probably a few more days as I'm working on a Spanish style mansion right now, and with college courses in between, I'm limited on time. I seem to get ideas when I lay down to sleep, so then I get back up and work on something for a few hours and get to bed around 4-5am haha, so it's a "as they come." type basis. The Spanish mansion might be done tonight, if so then I'd guesstimate no later than Monday the revisions should be up for download for Sanford. Something a bit more.... or less, interesting, the house was actually named after the town that Nick Frost and Simon Pegg are PC's in, in the film Hot Fuzz. I was watching that movie in the background when I completed the manor and couldn't come up with the name and then his Sargent says "We're making you Sargent..." "I see..." *mutters under breathe* "In Sanford Glousteshire." "In where? Sorry?" blahblahblahblah etcetcetc. so yeh, that's where the name comes from if anyone gives a rats rearend.

No idea, as I stated to the other person that had that problem, it could be due to the home's large size? When I place the home on my map, it takes no time at all so *shrug* really not sure, I suppose it depends on your computer specs. But thanks

Thank you so much, my family outgrew the biggest house that came with the game, and I couldn't find a big enough one on the exchange..This is a beautiful home, AND you made it with pretty much the best stuff, I hardly made any changes. It took awhile to place in the game, but very much worth the wait!!

This house is amazing. It's perfect for my family of 7, ha. Riotgirl, you need to find a lot that's 60x60. The only ones in Sunset Valley are 15 Summer Hill Court, in the roundabout that's shaped like a D, or the Goth, Landgraab, or Alto family houses
