Essef Cotage is an Ultramodern house with intergalactic observatory ans fogs subaquatic view.

In a 30*30 landscaped on 2 levels lot you have a modern house.
On the 5th floor is the observatory with teleport access from the ground level. 2nd floor is only for entrance , 3rd is for the living rooms especialy a clear kitchen and dining room; bedroom is 1/4 level elevated

1st, semi sunken, level is for the garage and for the game/rest room with an "aquarium-pond" view.
In this lot I tested the "stealth stairs" TS2 trick you can find on the useful wiki : adapted to TS3 (not really modular) stairs.
Pond aquarium is basicaly a mix of the AllHeartAnne tut (How to build a pool in a lake ) and the AphexZero one (Building an Aquarium pool in S3).
The only trick I found is that you must lower the pond side of the pool with the small pond tool avoiding to center it to the pool building (fortunately undo is possible). After is just some deco to mask pool structure.

I Hope you enjoy with it

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.

It looks awesome, but I'm really interested in how you did the pool/pond thing. I read the tutorials but I'm not sure how you put them together, even with your instructions.
Could you maybe make a tutorial, or give some tips? Thanks ^^.

This is unique, love it!

Love will humiliate you and hate will cradle you.
Jealousy would be far less torturous if we understood that love is a passion entirely unrelated to our merits.
