"The Brownstone"
by boolPropped

I started building this apartment building in an attempt to incorporate one of my own recent favorite studio floorplans, and it evolved into this space-saving 8 unit apartment. The contrasting brick colors and styles reminded me of the brownstones I saw during my trip to Boston, MA, so that style was the inspiration for the overall exterior.

"The Brownstone" is a 2-level apartment building with 8 units total ranging in rent from §766-§1,416 per week. On the first floor, there are two studio apartments, which are for the single Sim who doesn't need a lot of space to stretch. The other two units have 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, kitchen/dining and living/study areas. The second level units of the apartment building is identical to the first floor.

(Studio Unit)

(Study/Kitchen Area)

The inside common areas of the apartment are limited to two foyers, one per floor, which support an elevator and staircase and community trash chutes. The outdoor common area comes outfitted with a large playground and TONS of space for outdoor games or to just simply lounge around.

The .rar Files

I have included two .rar files for this upload. They are two different versions of the building.

TheBrownstone.rar - Fully furnished, zoned as apartment
TheBrownstoneResidential.rar - Unfurnished, zoned as residential

The reason I included two versions of this lot is if you want to edit the outdoor common areas or the fences (etc) or furnish starting with a clean slate without having to re-zone the lot a zillion times from apartment to residential back to apartment. So do with the versions as you wish

  • This apartment has been play-tested!
  • Floorplans for unfurnished version attached
  • Unfurnished residential version costs §71,611

Lot Size: 4x3
Lot Price: §766-§1,416
