Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

I don’t use a ton of custom content in my game, but I definitely have a few favorite items that I tend to automatically reach for while building. I’m of the opinion that a judicial use of Maxis-matchish content adds to, rather than subtracts from, the appeal of a build, so I normally don’t feel bad about slathering on the CC in the interest of achieving just the right shade of roof or perfectly proportioned bathroom tiles. But it’s been a while since I’ve done a CC-free build, so I just wanted to reaffirm that I’m perfectly happy with this game even without twenty-piece matching window sets. Plus, I like not having to put together a content list!

This is an old-fashioned Victorian painted lady with three good sized bedrooms upstairs and main living areas plus a study (and potential fourth bedroom) downstairs.
  • 20x30 lot
  • §101,456 | §50,926
  • 3 bd/2 ba + study

Important Info

I faked the look of decorative window trim by using wall shelves above and below the windows. Since those are Buy items, they will disappear if you choose to move into this house "unfurnished." Just a heads up!

By the way: if you’re in the market for another CC-free, old-fashioned Victorian, check out the lot under "also recommended" in the sidebar.

Lot Size: 20x30
Lot Price (furnished): 101,456
Lot Price (unfurnished): 50,926

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.

I confess that I belong to the "preferably no CC" team when I download a lot into my game, so I appreciate this beauty very much! It will be ideal for my Reyes County savegame.

I'm so jealous of your use of patterns. You have the ability to see styles and combination that in my head would just scream "clash!" It's something I really admire about your interiors. And the exterior to this is great, the windows (with trim) and the different textures. Great work
