Greenwood Creek - a fantasy, storybook character house

Requires World Adventures
Built with patch 2.3.33
Uses CC from the Sims Store (see details below)

Greenwood Creek is a two-storey character house ideal, for instance, as a background lot for Sims story tellers or those Sims players who like to mix a bit of fantasy into their neighbourhoods.

With 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, lounge, study/library, combined kitchen and dining, laundry/harvest/nectar making storage shed, bbq and entertaining table, driveway for one car, bicycle with rack, mixed orchard, vegetable patch and fish in the creek.

Unfortunately, the second floor of the house (roof level) was unusable as a living space due to the roof eaves protruding everywhere and although this did not stop the Sims from using furniture and objects (when I tested it), it looked awful. I decided to build into the basement instead. It was roomier, and with the right wall treatments, turned out quite light in there afterall.

The entire lot is fenced off, which will force your Sims will use the bridge without you having to prompt them to do so. (Thanks to Colemarie for the tip!)

Just like my Puggle Farm lot, this one has been built entirely on an angle, therefore, if you want to move furniture around etc you may need to use both the "moveobjects on" and "disablesnappingtoslotsonalt on" cheats.

CC from the Sims Store used:

Topper Plant (Earth Day freebie)

Not a Street Floor Lamp (freebie)

Thanksgiving Wall Shelf (freebie)

Not so Private Study Door (can be replaced by the Mag's Door in game)

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.

This is so adorably cute...only special sims will live there. The tv room reminds of ours when I was kid...old b&w. The decor is wonderfully coordinated too. Thanks for all the time and effort you put into it. Again just so adorably cute (gushes)
