The forty-seventh house in my "1920s Series" - inspired by 62 Beautiful Vintage Home Designs from the 1920s - is the "Camarillo," a Spanish Colonial with three Bedrooms, one and a half Baths, a proper Receiving Hall, Living Room, Library, Dining Room, Kitchen, Basement, Courtyard, semi-attached Carriage House Garage, and a Pool. Or, as the brochure says, "7 Rooms, Bath, Toilet, Garage, and Court."

I, uhhh, ...went a little overboard, I think, on this one. Living in Central Florida, like I do, most of the really nice older architecture has a Spanish influence - so, I really like this house! It is definitely staying up on Belladonna Cove's "Affluent Ridge" in my game. This is the most expensive of my 1920's Houses so far - coming in at a whopping $93K - but, you get a lot for your money. Many of the rooms have wood paneling, the kitchen has upgraded cabinets and appliances, with a higher grade tile than what I've used in other of this series' houses. More furniture is included - mostly from the Maxis Mission set. And, curtains are included in all the bedrooms. Also, don't forget the pool! All-in-all, I'm really happy with this build, I hope your sims will be too!

This lot has been adjusted with Mootilda's GridAdjuster to have a cute little 1-click foundation.
AND it has a basement (a regular dug-out basement, not a no-slope/page-down-to-the-Nether basement.)
It is also Big Dog approved (Thanks to Shasta and Huge Lunatic.)

Please scroll through all the above pictures to see everything this house has to offer. Like I said above... I went a little overboard with this one - it is more fully furnished than the rest of the 1920's Series houses. Only one room is completely devoid of furnishings and that is the 2nd bedroom. The house is not "cluttered" though, there is still a lot of room for you to add furniture, decorations, and artwork. Of course, you can completely redo it however you want when it's in your game All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The telephone is located in the hall across from the kitchen door, as the original plans indicate. 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.

There is only parking for one vehicle - in the garage.

A quick note about the roof: If you use Niol/Moi's Roof Shader (like I do) and do NOT use THESE adjusted versions of Honeywell's Bespoke Roofs by The Llama Park/Tumblr, then WOAH! Man! That is gonna be one bright orange roof! When I opened this lot on my Win10 (noCC except whats pertinent to the lot I'm packaging) Sims2 game, I almost jumped out of my chair it was so bright! ...just a word of warning. You may want to get the toned down version of the Bespoke roofs - IF you use a brighter roofs mod.

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: 3x2
Lot Price (furnished): $93,748
