This quaint cottage is nearly surrounded by a creek, the perfect spot for an outdoors loving angler Sim. Foot bridge leads across creek to the house.
First floor feature 2 bedrooms, one large enough to be a double, but furnished with one single bed, and one single sized, furnished as a nursery. Open plan kitchen, living and dining area. There is also a full bathroom on the first floor.
Second floor loft features master bedroom and bath.
From the loft you have a view below of the living area. I used monorail fencing to create beams across the open space. Ceiling lights in kitchen and dining room are 'suspended' from these beams.

I used snaitf's 'buyable fishing spawners' in this creek to create active fishing spots. I placed spawners for common, uncommom and rare pond fishes. I did not place spawners for the ocean, graveyard or robot fishes.
Snaitf's spawners are available here:
Buyable Fishing Spawners
If you don't have these spawners installed, you can still use the lot, but there won't be fish jumping, and you'll only be able to fish the kinds of fish normally available in an unstocked residential pond.

I used a lot of the store 'Hewsnman' set for this lot. Any store items you don't have will be replaced by regular game items.

One pattern by Plum, a TS2 carpet conversion, is included in the zip.

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.

How you get those beams on the second floor?

I just used the monorail fencing. That's one of the low fencing options. You don't even need a cheat to place them over an empty area, just select it and draw a 'beam' where you want it.

Ah thanks, nice house but I'll ignore it then as I feel disinclined to pay more money for individual content from the game producer less than a month after buying the game.

Simply gorgeous house!

And though the inside is quite inviting, it's the creek that sold me on this one. An outdoorsman's paradise!

Thank you so much for creating and sharing. Truly, it makes the game worthwhile.

I'm assuming you modeled this house after the "Fisher Creek" in Fable correct? In all honesty that's the only reason I downloaded it because I just finished beating fable like 4 times :P

Well, I named it after Fable's Fisher Creek, but the house isn't really supposed to look like the one in Fable. Especially since the houses in Fable don't have bathrooms at all, and most don't even have stoves, and would not be really practical for Sims, who have to eat and pee, lol.
But yeah, I love Fable and was thinking about Fisher Creek when I built this lot.
