Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.


lot size: 14x12
original lot: 13 windsor drive, bridgeport. (i bulldozed a subway station. take that, public transportation.)
price: $15,918 furnished / $13,954 unfurnished

a small modern starter, built with privacy (not that sims need it) and the city in mind. fully furnished, partially decorated. playtested with 1 sim for 4 days.

comes with the basics, plus:
--television
--pool
--mirror (over the toilet; hard to see, but functional!)



notes:
--the space to the left of the house was reserved for a parking spot, but it can easily be turned into a garden/expansion/mosh pit/whatever your heart yearns for.

--14x12 is a bizarre lot size, so i made sure i did very little ground-painting, especially near the edges, so as to make it look as clean and seamless as possible on a larger lot. it's been built for bridgeport, but it should translate just fine to any other neighborhood.

Lot Size: 1x1
Lot Price: $15,918

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.

The first two words that came to my mind when I saw the pictures of this lot were "Wow" and "amazing" - both already used in the first two comments - D'oh!

What a lovely starter home - it's pretty cool to have a swimming pool, too - and it doesn't look like a starter home. Great work!

This is just so clean and sleek, its like a Ferrari or some other sleek car, just with a different color scheme. Not to many people build modern houses in this style (because apparently there are different types of modern styles) and when they do, they just turn out so beautiful. I love the color scheme on the inside, with the rock and the brown, and I just love how the couch is the only blue thing in the living room so it just pops out, while still matching the other things due to the buttons.

I love it!! My computer isn't very high end so it can't handle large homes so I've been looking for small homes that also look modern and stylish and this fits the bill. Wish I were a Sim living in this home!

I usually don't comment on uploads, but this was so great I had to! This is by far my favorite house. So many people make beautiful, but expensive, houses on here and no one thinks of the poor sims ya start out with! I love what you did with the space, this is perfect

Fantastic looking house.
If I made a Sims 2 version of this, would you be flattered or angry?
I would include a link back to this, of course.

Thanks.
It probably won't happen today or tomorrow, but it will happen.
Edit: It's happened.

I don't have sims 3, but this makes me want it, probably more than most of the other houses I've looked at on here. It's beautiful; a really lovely design and a great use of space.
