~ Story ~

After winning gold in the 2012 London Summer Olympics, this professional tennis player began to bring in some MASSIVE endorsement checks.
Recently hired by GatorPunch as a new face model for their sport drink bottles, as well as BSPN producing his new sports talk show - He was making a few hundred grand a week!
Bridgeport was generous to him upon his return home, but he felt like something was missing...
He needed to be submerged in a fast pace city with something new to offer - He decided to hop right back on the plane and head back to London!
Rumor has it, his new flat has a tennis court on the roof!!!

Sadly, The Highview Estate rests unused...
Don't lose your chance to own this beautiful home, as its not likely to stay on the market for long.

A note from Simoleon:

Thank you all for taking the time to view this home!
I would like to thank the good folks at ModTheSims for creating a wonderful place for us to all share our creations.
Without MTS, The Sims honestly wouldn't be a game I would play - custom content really defines this game for me, so THANK YOU for all you do!
Thank you to the supporters of MTS - all of you who take the time to download/comment/thank/contribute/etc!

Its been a long time since I've uploaded a home to MTS, and I sincerely hope it was worth the wait!
Please, if you download the home and enjoy it, I would greatly appreciate a thanks, favorite or comment.
If you dont like it, I would love to know why - honestly - your feedback has progressed me to where I am now, and I appreciate that.

Side Note:

Should you decide to edit the house, you will need to use the "RestrictBuildBuyInBuildings Off" cheat.
Currently, anything outside of the rooms is not editable due to the level skips I placed on the roof and foundation.
Lastly, please feel free to explore with different setups for the rooms.
If you are looking for another bedroom or two, consider remodeling the reading lounge or game room.
Keep in mind that no basements were used, so you can definitely build down as well.

Thank you, and enjoy living your new luxurious life in The Highview Estate!

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.

Thank you very much for the great compliment!
Honestly, I was really hoping I would get a Featured Upload, or even a Picked Upload.
So much time was spent making this a beautiful home, so I was very disappointed that I didn't get a Feature or Pick - I guess there is always next time though, right?

I also have to remember - my style of building is very much an acquired taste.

I greatly appreciate you (and everyone else) for taking the time to download and comment!

This house looks amazing and is really inline with the kind of house that I was trying (and failing) to make. And to top it all off, it's located where I'm currently living. So it fits in PERFECTLY with the roleplay I had planned for building a new house.

This will be the first house I've downloaded since game release. Consider this a huge compliment.

This is awesome man! The house is simple yet elegant. Not only that, the trash bins and cloth bin thing(what ever you call that) is properly placed, it is really complete, there's also a wine rack (with nectars). Everything is also upgraded. Thanks mate~! this is the only download I've commented in. Good Job~

Very good job...! So beautiful...just like the one i would have...but i am not an ex-tennis player...! I have so much to tell, so i will explain in french because english is hard for me.
J'adore le fait que la maison soit réaliste, pourvue de fonctions multiples, du moins en apparences...! Le cellier remplit de nectar, vraiment cool..! Cela concorde bien avec un intérieur luxueux. Dommage par contre que les sims ne peuvent jouer au tennis. Cette espace devient inutile, mais très réalise au niveau visuel.
Bien pensé les espaces walk-in pour les vêtements, la ventilation, la salle de lavage, le garage assez grand pour plusieurs voitures.
Superbes toutes les zones fenestrées...!
Pour ma part, j'ai installée la maison en bordure de mer à Starlight Shore. Cela me donne une magnifique vue sur la mer et les couchés/levés de soleil, ainsi que toutes tempêtes et orages...super...!
J'ai eu un petit pépin avec le trophée de l'inventeur qui s'est mit à jouer une musique de cirque sans vouloir s'arrêté. Mais compte tenu de tous les mods et CC que je possède je ne peux en tenir rigueur qu'à ma partie ultra chargée et complexe.
Je prévois peut-être ajouter un sous-sol, mais franchement la maison est très complète et fonctionnelle.
J'ai ajoutée un évier près du bar dans la pièce de lecture pour permettre un nettoyage à proximité aux sims, retirée les enceintes commerciales qui ne jouent que du classique, retirée une petite chambre pour en faire un atelier de peinture et j'ai changée quelques meubles, mais franchement pas grand chose à retoucher, et c'est aussi bien sur, une question de goût personnel....!
Pour moi,...c'est vraiment un super coup de coeur...merci et bravo à vous..!
