Requires World Adventures
Built with patch 2.6.11
Uses free and premium CC from the Sims Store
Mirkwood Glade is a clearing in a great, ancient, magical forest. There stands Mirkwood Glade House, an elven dwelling. It has 3 double sized bedrooms (the master bedroom has ensuite), 1 double nursery/children's room, nectar making facilities, cozy kitchen/dining, lounge with fireplace, 3 bathrooms, reading room, ornamental gardens, a fish stocked river, thriving vegetable patch, all surrounded by a mystical forest.
There are no tv's, radios or telephones or driveway (yet there is room for several car parking spots). There is, however, a chess board, an easel, two bookcases and two fire alarms. There is also a pathway leading through a small forest for you to plant your rare and special plants in
The interiors are quite spartan and organic, in that they do not feature any bright colours mostly muted neutrals and woods. There are no modern items (other than the great Sim essentials: the toilet/tub/shower/fridge/oven).

Sorry, I don't take requests.
I don't follow real floorplans, because just as with following a cooking recipe, I tend to deviate (really well lol)
