Balcom Split Level is a charming split level home that is perfect for a young family. With four bedrooms and three and a half baths, this home is sure to suite the needs of most any family. A large backyard leaves plenty of room for running children and a private pool for relaxing or throwing pool parties.

The top level houses the living and sleeping quarters for the family. Three bedrooms, including a master with en-suite bath, make up the upper half of this level. The master bedroom is just across the hall from the two nurseries (both large enough to be converted to regular bedrooms as the children age) so mom can keep an ear out for the babies in the middle of the night. The lower half of the level features a large living room and combined kitchen and dining area.

The bottom level focuses more on the fun times for the family. The upper half of this level has a recreation/play room for mom to take the children to play during the day. It is complete with bookshelves, plenty of toys, a small tv to keep the children entertained and a computer to keep mommy entertained with Simbook! It also has a guest bedroom, sparsely furnished with mismatched, aged furniture. This room is perfect for visiting grandparents (or daddy when he makes mommy mad). Perhaps as the young ones start school, a new baby will be welcomed to the family. The lower half, or the basement, houses the man cave. Guitar, bar, foosball table, and darts; this room has it all when the man of the house needs to escape for a little while. A laundry room and storage room converted to another bath can also be found in the basement.

This home was placed in Riverview to be tested and was set on Hidden Grove Lane using VelocityGrass's mod (listed above) to add a 35x35 lot. My sim was able to access all items and get to all floors with no issues. I will warn you that the arm chair in the living room is at risk for fire. But, you can handle it, right? Also, the only content used from WA are the olive trees; therefore, if you don't have that EP, you should be fine with downloading and not breaking any fundamental aspect of the lot.
