Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This house was built in Sunlit Tides, but does not require the world to download it (if you already have Sunlit Tides – great!) It sits on a 40x40 lot with amazing views all around. It has 5 comfortable bedrooms, 3 1/2 bathrooms, a large living room, eat-in kitchen and dining room, walk out basement, large pool with a deck overhead, a balcony off the top floor bedrooms, a nursery, office, and a two-car garage that can fit five cars and two bikes total. It also comes with an outdoor patio in the front of the house for that tropical and open feel!

Furnished inside out! I’ve uploaded the CC version, along with more photos, to my website although the CC version only has about 3 pieces of cc so still not that many. I have another version on my blog that has a bit of CC such as plants and trees, and there is even a video tour to get a better look, which you can find on my profile.
-----------------------

IMPORTANT!!! - CC NOT INCLUDED -
IN ORDER FOR THE RETAINING WALLS TO SHOW UP IN GAME YOU MUST DOWNLOAD THEM FROM FLABALIKI - HERE
-----------------------

To afford this lot, simply use the freerealestate cheat. Sorry it’s so pricy!








The awkward open sky in the picture is not because the house doesn't have a roof over that area, it's because there is open area going up from the stairs right beside the kitchen!

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.

This house looks amazing! I have sunlit tides but I don't have the SIms 3 Pets expansion pack. Would I still be able to use it?

Absolutely! Just some objects will be replaced, no big deal.

Gorgeous house. A bit cramped for space since my sims decided to have quadruplets (along with the child they already had) but it's lovely.

Love this build! But my sims seems to get stuck at the front entrance just below the first set of stairs.

Thanks, I really enjoyed this house. The only issue I had was occasionally my sims would get stuck on the front stairs.
