Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I built this home especially for those Sims that like to live a bit more large.

I hope you enjoy this new Deluxe Family Home with swimming pool and little fish pond. I didn't build a fence around the house because I wanted to keep the house with an open view. However, if you plan to put this house in a dense living area, you could build a fence around it giving your Sims some more privacy.

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.

Wow, this house is very nice! I love the home from the outside, and the inside color schemes as well. I hope you make more homes in the future that are just as great as this one!

Wow! Not only is the house totally amazing, but good description! More uploaders should use that layout.

I love it, looks very playable, all important objects are sort of facing the front of the house (i rarely rotate the camera while playing) and the cabinets aren't in the way when viewing the kitchen.

Good Job!!

This is such a beautiful house, but I tend to use smaller houses because my families are always only 1 or 2 people. Could you make a smaller version of this house? Like maybe 2 bedroom/2 bath but still roomy enough to walk around? And maybe under 40,000 furnished. Thanks, it would be greatly appreciated.

I love your homes! You do traditional homes so well; almost all of the non-modern homes I've downloaded (and actually kept) have been yours. Your exteriors are quite nice, and your interiors are well-decorated but still look homey and liveable.

Edit: got a chance to look at this in-game, and it's even better than I thought.

Thank you wens2, I hope you enjoy them. More things will come, but I'm currently busy working with CAW with plenty of new lots. Hope to share more soon.
