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)

Double Frame Photo - (decor only)

lot size :3x3
furnished cost: 93,522
unfurnished cost: 50,459


Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price: 93,522

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.

The house is amazing, I absolutely love it! But next to the font gate there are two chairs (like the ones in the kitchen) stacked on top of each other, facing in opposite directions. Is that suppose to be something else or what? (:

Ashandemsmomi - I don't think it's a problem with the file (I just tested it), perhaps it's your isp. Try to download it again.

Beautiful house, but I think it is rather feminine, it is more suitable for female sims to live in.

How did you make the roofs like that?

Thanks again, for the great comments

Chaosmagex - the roofs can be easily created in the game (in build mode, under roofs) by inverting the pagoda style roof and adjusting the roof height until you get the look you desire.
