Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Greetings my fellow simmers today I present to you the Woodlawn Estate. This grand manor combines beauty, elegance, and functionality so wonderfully that it could be considered a work of art. The pictures really do not do this house justice...That being said this estate sits on a 60x60 sized lot and features a luxurious master bedroom, 2 guest suites, 3 additional bedrooms, (which totals 6 bedrooms), 4 bathrooms, a huge two car garage, a beautiful courtyard, a gazebo, and gorgeous landscaping all around. This estate comes fully furnished and costs a whopping total of $400,239 furnished and $180,084 unfurnished. This estate is ideal for those who love to entertain (and have deep pockets). I hope you will enjoy this lot and I wish you all much happy simming

I did use some CC but for some reason when I uploaded the .zip no CC was 'detected', so here's a list of the stuff I used that is included in the .zip:

- Door with glass - By lemoncandy

- Indoor Plants 1 - Also by lemoncany

Much thanks to lemoncandy for the awesome CC :D

Lot Size: 6x6

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.

This looks lovely, but I can't install it. I keep getting a "bad zip header" message.

I love this, the only thing is I despise that kitchen cabinet pattern but it can be easily changed.

I absolutely love this house, it's just plain awesome. The design both inside and out is just gorgeous, and I like that the hallways and staircase are nice and wide. Unfortunately, my sims can't use the bathtub in the master bathroom at the back of the house. It's a shame because I really like the design of that bathroom in particular. Other than that, I love the house. Thank you for uploading it.
