Hey everyone! We're back again with another big build for your Sims to enjoy! This is the Grand Chateau, a massive 11 bedroom home, beautifully detailed, and perfect for Sims who like to live in luxurious splendor!

This house features a vast number of rooms of all kinds, offering your Sims plenty to see and do! These include a music hall, library, billiard room, nectar cellar, various studies and game rooms, a nursery, and more! The whole property is surrounded by luscious well groomed flower gardens and clean cut hedges.

I really hope you all enjoy this build! It was great fun to design and create and I hope you enjoy placing it into your games! As always, it is completely free of Store and CC content! Happy Simming!

As a side note, this home fits especially well in either Champs Le Sims, or in Monte Vista!

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.

Welcome back Pancake!! I have been missing your wonderful builds and this is another magnificent example of your talents. I really don't know how you are able to put so much character into your houses etc without using any CC. Thank you and I am so glad you are ok in these troubling times.

this is incredible! how long does it take to build something so large? how do you stay motivated? i struggle with a 3 bed family home
also i have to say you nailed the 'rich people have no taste' decorating, it's hideous in the best ways. so much marble and gold and conflicting colours!

Generally I never play huge mansions like this, but I must comment what a very nice work this is, especially the interiors, you decorated them in such a very coherent and consistent way, I especially love the kitchen and the bedrooms. When I see interiors like this I feel so sorry that Sims 3 ghosts are so harmless compared to Sims 2 ones. Very Hill House! :D

This look amazing, your skill in building and decorating is top notch. Not playing the right game for this build atm, but will definitely keep this one in mind for another time

This is breathtaking! I love the attention to details in decorating each and every room. The kitchen pics (screenshot 11 and 13) remind me of Downtown Abbey! I would love for my sims to sleep in these bedrooms. Fantastic work!

Looks magnificent. Explains why you've been gone for a while if you were busy creating this.
