Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This elegant and spacious modern house sits among sprawling green lawns and the windows give wide views of the landscape. This is the house every sim dreams of, and any rich sim would be proud to show it off to their friends. It includes every comfort sims could want, including a three car garage, a double height living room, a private office, and an exercise/hobby room. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a master suite, each with floor to ceiling windows looking out into the private backyard. The backyard itself includes a large swimming pool, a swingset and slide for the kids, and a covered, skylit patio and grill area. This is the perfect place for hosting A-list private parties or entertaining those higher-ups from the workplace.


Custom Content:

No custom content is included with the download. You'll have to download it yourself. There's a fair amount of stuff, but I couldn't resist, and it makes everything so much more realistic and fun.

From Mango Sims:
Set Orani
Set Julo
Set Arsène
Set Scarab

From Simply Styling:
Bathroom 1
Deco/Misc 2 (bathroom deco)
Livingroom 4
Livingroom 5

Plants by Einfach Simlisch (found under "Deco/Misc")

Rattan Outdoor Set by Vitasims 3 (need chair, sofas, and tables only)

Laundry Set by Around the Sims 3 (need front load washer, deco dryer, wall drying rack, sink, folded ironing board, and both wicker laundry baskets)

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.

It's a very nice lot, but the amount of custom content spoils it for me.
Perhaps you could replace it with simple base game furniture for those of us who don't want a lot of custom content in their game?

Same here, its hard to go trough all that CC. Why not include it in the download?

I love this house, but I didn't want to get all that cc either, so I installed without it. Then I used the pictures to recolor and position my own cc in place of what was missing. It worked out great. My sims moved in this morning. I played through two sim days with no problems.

WOW I love this house, I would have download it but it has too much CC which makes it a really tough choice, could may upload one that has only base game content.

Thanks for the house it's great and the CC goes brilliantly with it well worth the time to download it all

I love this house inside and out! I spent forever getting all the cc so it would show up exactly as it is in the pictures. Only problem is I want to move my family in, but unfortunately in Bridgeport there is no room to place a 64x64 lot!

If there is a 60x60 lot go onto edit town, clicke the little square box with a pen, and delete the 60x60 lot and then put a 64x64 lot in it's place, hope this helps

Love this house, don't really care for all the CC like most, but I did get them all. >.<

I did notice however when I started to play, that my sim couldn't go inside. I then realized.. there are no doors to get inside!! Lol. I added them though.

Thank you for the upload.

Geez, there are TONS of preparation!! I think most people back out with this lot because of the massive "content is not included" list, but to me it's all worth - the creator spent more time on searching suitable objects for the house, and it DOES look great! So why not just spend slightly less time (compare to time spent by the author) to grab those stuff and enjoy his/her lot? He/she deserves our thanks! :D

It is a nice house but I've seen some other creators have uploaded great houses too but without zillions of custom contents. I agree with posters above,the list of "Custom Contents not included" is a big put off.Sorry
