San Pedro Villa

Requires World Adventures and Ambitions
Built with version 4.0.87
Uses Sims Store CC

San Pedro Villa is a Spanish styled house I designed for the MTS Foundations Competiton, but missed out because the maximum number of entrants filled out within a couple of hours of me deciding to participate - I was too slow, waaahhh

Anyway, it is a medium sized villa and features 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large kitchen, formal dining, formal lounge, architect's office and tv room, entertaining patio with bar and buffet table, laundry with dryer and washer, swimming pool and bbq area, driveway, vegetable garden, landscaped gardens and a relaxation patio with water fountains and plants. It is also still strictly based on the foundation footprint as provided by MTS for the competition.

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.

To echo the sentiments of those above me, this really is such a beautiful lot! You did an awesome job capturing that "south of the border" style, excellent work .

Wow thank you all guys - I have never been to Spain either, nor Mexico so I am not quite sure what style this is, it's what my mind's eye thought looked rustic and Spanish but if it's more Mexican, then I have learnt something new

Romagi - thank you for your kind words about the landscaping. We have a huge garden here (although it seems to grow weeds better than anything else lol) and perhaps that helps with garden creation in game.


btw: if you download this lot, I just noticed that there is a rogue lavender plant in the rear garden - it's hovering in the air above the garden bed a bit near the house I guess you can just delete it if you find it

I did not say that solely to make it BE featured/picked; conversely, I thought the lot was incredible and therefore I merely said what I felt. Perhaps I should stop wondering aloud (it has landed me in bad situations in the consumption of donkey in China...) Sorry if it was taken the wrong way.
