This was one of the first homes built in Riverview but sitting on the outskirts of town it was soon forgotten. Lucky for you the previous owners fell in love with the charm and romance of the era that the house was built, they also, found the house to be one of the most structurally sound houses on the market. They have cleaned up the landscaping, sealed the pool, installed new plumbing and electric, updated the kitchen, renovated a lot of the interior walls and even turn that dirt floor cellar into a nice family room. And, if you offer them enough they just might tell you about the room under the garage instead of letting you find it yourself!

The main floor has:
Living room
Full bath
Eat-in Kitchen

The upstairs has:
Master bedroom
Two full baths
2 child/guest bedrooms

Basement has:
Family room
Weight room
Spare room

The lot has:
Swimming pool

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.

Thanks All! I am glad you like

I am not sure how Sims 3 works but I do have WA and the latest patch so the house was built with that installed.

Nice house. I love the little details like the "mouldy" wall covering on the outside of the house. It adds depth to the house. Good job =]

I have walked the edge of the Abyss.
I have governed the unwilling.
I have witnessed countless empires break before me.
I have seen the most courageous soldiers fall away in fear.
I have seen your future.
And I have learned.
There will be no more Sadness. No more Anger. No more Envy.

Absolutely gorgeous - I love the Frenchy influence (being the uber francophile that I am).

You will need to have WA to have the basement.

Could someone clear something up for me? Do I need The Sims 2 easy installer to put this house in my Sims 3?. I keep rereading all the instructions to put it in my game but it still isn't showing up. I downloaded it to my downloads folder, and then using winrar, extracted the files into my mod/packages folder, then went in the packages folder, and clicked on it. It brought up the launcher, but it doesn't show. Riverview works, and a couple other things Ive downloaded but not houses? Any help is appreciated.

*** NM I figured it out

You should be able to download it to anywhere. Unzip it - open the folder and double click on the icon - the launcher should open up and install the house for you.

WOW, my friend, I don't know how I missed this gorgeous creation of yours... This house is fantastic, amazing and so sweet all together !

Plus, it has been featured in a French Sims Site called Rabiere & Co in which I am also a member here

He hee, it was so great to see you over there too, so I just wanted to let you know
