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.

Gorgeous work, I lived in Downtown LA as a small child and so many of these beautiful Gothic houses in that area have been demolished since then, this is a great reproduction of the style!

Thanks, if I knew the actual name of the house I would have made the gardens as well, but it was unnamed on Google, so... Anyway, the staircases are or "U" shaped because I used controlFloorElevation. As you can see the cornices make an actual floor (which has the attic on it) so I had to connect everything this way.

Me, me, me against them, me against enemies, me against friends, somehow they all seem to become one, a sea full of sharks and they all smell blood.

Sorry for the dumb question, but I've never downloaded housing before--if I don't have Showtime, will this install correctly?
