The forty-fourth house in my "1920s Series" - inspired by 62 Beautiful Vintage Home Designs from the 1920s - is a brick Dutch Colonial with three bedrooms, one bathroom, formal dining room, large living room, full basement, detached garage, and a large yard. The brochure says, "By placing a pergola at one end and the solarium at the other, the architect has achieved perfect balance." I can easily imagine a very successful politician living here in the 1920's, with his perfect family, and busy social life. I think there needs to be a tennis court on the lawn in back... but, maybe a pool will do?
I hope you have a wealthy sim family who will enjoy living here

Of interesting architectural note in this build is the split staircase... from the landing, you also have access to the kitchen. The ceiling seems low, but it's not too low for sims.

Please scroll through all the above pictures to see everything this house has to offer. Furniture includes a double bed, two nightstands (one with an alarm clock), a closet, cheval mirror, two easy chairs, a bookcase, statue, and a dining set. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The telephone is located in the front Hall. The front door is burglar alarmed. The range and both fireplaces 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 fireplaces - one in the living room, and one in the Master bedroom. 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 three vehicles - one in the garage and two on the driveway.

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: 3x3
Lot Price (furnished): $69,023
