This is my first community Lot....and a really big one ^^

This Lot features a small castle with a big garden on the backside.
On the groundfloor i decide to let the entrance area unfurnished, so you can place there what you want, also in the staircase rooms.
On the left side is a room with buffet and tables, wher your sims can eat and on the right side a library room.
(I hope it will give a business extension pack for sims 3 soon...)

On the first floor you find on both sides toiletrooms, lounge rooms, 2 rooms where you can play chess and in the middle a bar.
I built this lot very symetrical.

The garden has a large fountain in the middle, 2 labyrinth hedges, many litlle romantic places, on both sides chess areas and 2 little ponds.

The statues and the lamps on the wall of the castle are from the simstore.

Lot Size: 6x6
Lot Price: 415.620 / 252.279

Number of bedrooms: Not Applicable
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Fully Furnished
Special Flags: Not Applicable

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.

Normaly it should fit on a 60x60 lot ...hmmm
The place where i built it is called "Sonnenhügel Platz 10" but i think it doesnt´t help :/ (I don´t know the name in english)
Its a sort of U-Shaped street near the beach in Sunset Valley.

I think you're talking about the Landgraab Lot at 10 Summer Hill Court. It's a pre-made lot with the Landgraab Family...and a very rich one at that. They have a very small hedge maze in the back corner of their lot, but it pales in comparison to your wonderful creation. Your lot makes the Landgraab's look like middle class folk! LOL! I love it! It's absolutely amazing!

The angle at which you took the first picture gives the illusion that the lot is MUCH longer than it really is. But I think it's more of the game's camera limits than your picture taking. The game can do weird things with camera angles sometimes.

Not having a sig IS my sig. Oh wait, this is a sig, isn't it? Nevermind...
