Attached is a 30 x 30 lot with a small stone church in a loosely Norman style. This is one of a number of lots I have been working on for a small old-fashioned village -- so it's deliberately rather basic, with a dirt path to the stairs, etc. It's got a simple altar and nave (i.e. the place with the benches), and there's also a more elaborate Landgraab Family Chapel off to one side. The playable area is pretty much one story, though there is also a very small upstairs choir loft. There is space for a wedding arch at the altar rail, so the church makes a very romantic place for wedding ceremonies, and the landscaping leaves room for gravestones or whatever else you'd like to add. The lot is currently set as a small park, but could easily become a graveyard if you add a mausoleum.

There is no required CC, but if you want the arched windows and the chairs at the altar to show up as in the screenshots, you need the following store items:
The lot looks perfectly fine without them -- just pick some similar windows and chairs if you don't have the CC.

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 is really gorgeous! I normally build all my own lots, but I may just have to download this one. It'd look really pretty next to some of the graveyards that came with the game.

Looks very nice. But can you make another version with a cemetery?

I've been really interested in adding elements of religion to my Sims games - I really like fleshing out the simulation as much as possible. This is beautiful and will work wonderfully; thank you so much!
