1920's Vintage Home Design ~ 3B/1B American Foursquare, 39th in the Series

The thirty-ninth house in my "1920s Series" - inspired by 62 Beautiful Vintage Home Designs from the 1920s - is an American Foursquare "of great dignity and charm." It has three large bedrooms, the bathroom has both a tub and a walk-in shower, downstairs features a huge living room, large dining room, and a somewhat small - but functional - kitchen. The interesting architectural note about this house is the staircase. And, it has a full basement, plus a detached "workshop" garage. I see a very successful family living in this house - with maybe an artist or entrepreneur-of-some-sort tinkering away all hours in the garage. Oh! And, maybe they know how to teleport to the attic? I hope your sims enjoy living in this house






Please scroll through all the above pictures to see everything this house has to offer. Furniture includes a double bed, nightstand with an alarm clock, a closet, loveseat and easy chair, and a dining set. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The telephone is located on the stair landing (as the original floor plan indicates, though on the opposite wall) The front door is burglar alarmed. The range and fireplace have smoke alarms.


This is a clean copy of this house/lot; no sim has ever lived here. The package has been cleaned with Mootilda's Clean Installer. Pictures were taken with Invisible Fire Alarms in place, but the lot is packaged without that mod. So, you will see the fire alarm over the range in the kitchen and over the fireplace in the living room. Pictures were also taken with the Invisible Driveway, but the lot is not packaged with it. I highly recommend both invisifying options! .

There is parking for two - one in the garage and one on the driveway. Because the garage is turned sideways, there are no arrival/departure animations for cars. Cars will teleport from the garage to the road and back again.


CC list - used but NOT included - so, GO get it:

Standard mods I use that are not necessary nor included - but were probably used whilst building/photo-ing/prepping this house for upload...
If you need help installing Numenor's Unlevel Wall #90, click this info button:

I use Niol/Moi's Roof Shader for brighter roofs
And, HW/Honeywell's A Little Greyer: Roof Trim Defaults
Then, if it's a Bespoke Roof recolor - it will be THESE adjusted versions by The Llama Park/Tumblr that you see used in the pictures.
(However, what you get in the packaged file, will either be the plain EA roof or the straight, un-modified Bespoke roof from the set here on MTS2.)
Maranatah's White Wall Top texture replacement
Moo's Turn On/Off Lights
Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix
BeosBoxBoy's no-red-pause-mod
Nopke's Go Under Spiral Stairs mod for proper spiral stair usage
And, of course, everyone needs Numenor's CEP and SEP!
I also use FRAPs to take in-game pictures, and PhotoShop to clean/collage said pictures.
And, I highly recommend using gummilutt's Invisible Medicine Cabinet to add features to any mirror - as per her policy, it's not used or included in this lot.


Lot Size: 2x3
Lot Price (furnished): $43,201
