Here we have one of my favorite houses that I've worked on for some time which is based off a real life house plan. The house itself would be considered slightly above modest but not massive like a mansion by any means. Below you will find a picture I've scanned from the book I have with several house blue prints (the blurry part of that photo is from having that book open to that page for months & from probably having a diet coke sitting on it). I've tried to make my version as similar as possible within the realms of Simdom to the real thing.

Front View of Real Version:

Real Floor Plan:

As you'll notice when looking at the REAL LIFE Floor plan, my version is a bit different around the main floor half bath and laundry room, and around the Master Bath. And my second story has 4 bedrooms with two baths as opposed to what the Real Life version has.

Back Patio/Yard:

Living Room:

This house has two stories and a basement with plenty of room for rainy day games. There are four bedrooms and two full baths on the second floor, one of which could be used as a butler's quarters with it's own bathroom. One of the bigger rooms upstairs is decorated in splashes of pink that any girly-girl would love and the other two decorated in a Car theme and a Pirate theme. Each bedroom has a basic closet for a more realistic look. An area at the top of the stairs includes a stereo and a sitting area that overlooks the Great Room below and looks out through the two story windows at the tidy backyard.

The main floor includes the Master Bedroom with huge walk-in closet and bathroom with two sink areas. This bathroom has a 'porch' section for the garden tub and shower as well as a 'water closet,' keeping the toilet area separate. A formal parlor is just to the left of the front door for your guests to wait in before leading them to the Great Room. The Great Room includes a living area with a massive fireplace on one end and a dining room on the opposite end. The kitchen is open so that the cook can be a part of the conversation with those relaxing in the living area. To the side of the kitchen is a small quiet office. An attached ground-level garage big enough for two cars has an area for that handy Sim to tinker around in. The Laundry room is just to the right of the door leading from the garage.

The backyard includes a sunken area with a pool big enough for a family of 6, a BBQ area and plenty of flowers for the gardener of the family. I hope you like it as much as my Sim family does. An option with the Master Bedroom would be to convert the large walk-in closet to a Nursery in case your "complete" Sim family has a sudden "surprise" addition.

Note: the second floor is basically a floor that is built "under the roof" which required building that area with separate roof pieces to ensure the Sims wouldn't put their coats on when going upstairs which is the case with Seasons. The basement is slightly taller than a normal Sim basement so that makes it impossible to add walls. It's just a great place to send the kids or the husband to have fun on rainy or snowy days.
