This year I visited Hobbiton (this is the place) and after that I couldn't resist having a go at Bag End for our Sims. I didn't want to use any custom content so I haven't given you a round door, or indeed any round windows, so let's call this my approximation of Bag End without CC or Store Content. I have, on the other hand, used items from the Buydebug section, and a very useful section it is too.

Despite the fact it's up a hill and surrounded by rocks it's a fully playable, cosy little home for your Hobbit complete with a veggie garden and all home comforts, including a Nectar making machine, a Magical mirror and an Alchemy station.

“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.”

Changing the structure of the house might prove a problem as I have use CFE in the creation of the roof at the front of the house.

Lot Placement
I have placed this home on a 50x50 lot on the site of the fishing spot called Pinochle Pond - To place the lot bulldoze the original lot and put down a 50x50 lot, change the designation to Residential and you will then be able to place the house.

Mods Used
In order to create Hobbity arches for the interior I used this incredible mod by velocitygrass to remove stencils and overlays to remove the yellow decoration on the red Chinese arch. You too can get rid of the yellow decoration, once in game, when using this Mod, you get the option to remove the decoration if you click on a decorated item.

The lot is a little expensive for a one bedroomed home, but the money isn't in the furnishings, it's in the construction and the hundreds of shrubs and plants!

Happy Simming!

Lot Size: 50x50
Lot Price (furnished): 86.050
Lot Price (unfurnished): 55.421

velocitygrass for the incredible remove stencil and overlays mod!

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.

Nice design. I love the groundwork and the use of shrubs on the roof. You can indeed make very mysterious living spaces by doing that.

Hubby (not a sims player) is very very impressed with what you've done here, moreso by the fact that you've done it without CC.

Excellently excecuted concept from beginning to end.

Thanks, I hate it.

This will crash my game, so I can't download it, but it looks awesome, almost worth the crash risk, almost.
