Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
California Avenue is back!
Well some of you will know of California Avenue and some of you won't, basically in Sims 2 i created a house called California Avenue, i lost it and never managed to rebuild it, it has been requested to be rebuilt many times and has had thousands of views on youtube; so i thought it was about time i remade the house, so i made it in Sims 3! The house is identical in terms of size and placement to the previous house, the plant borders and drive are all the same dimensions! Here is the house:

Outside is a large driveway that can hold 3+ cars, there is a pond in the back garden and landscaped design. Downstairs is a large elegant entrance hall with 3 tile staircase, to the right is the dining room and kitchen, to the left is the library, living room and toilet. Upstairs there are 3 suites, the west suite, the east suite and the north suite, all have large a large bedroom and an en-suite only accessible through the bedroom.

I really hope you guys enjoy this house, this has been a long time coming and i am glad i could finally bring it to you!

Lot size: 40x40
Furnished: $149,545
Unfurnished: $93,441

Thanks to the staff here at MTS for their great work, thanks also to all the people who have supported me in building this again!

Filename - Tip: You can click the magnifying glass to see the archive contents Size Downloads Date
No.1 California Avenue-DD.rar 3.13 MB 3,485 27th Jun 2009
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.
