UPDATED. I corrected the friezing to go all way around to back.

This is my modernized Victorian horror asylum for insane sims. As decades have passed there has been renovations. There are beds for 8 patients and a doctor.
This is a multipurpose lot (with a history), but you can easily convert it to a mansion, a museum, a hospital, boarding school or whatever you like.
You can also use this this lot on asylum challenge. I've used this lot on my own extensive asylum challenge.

Custom wall: Beehive recolors for Victorian mansion with wooden panels (TT_Grannyshouse.zip)



Backstory:

I was inspired by the Blackstone Chronicles horror game and the true history of treating mental patients, hence the name Greystone Asylum. This is not as horrible as the Blackstone Asylum in that game, but I think it's pretty close.


Graystone mansion history:




Asylum:

In every room there is mandatory music playing (easy listening music station) to "soothe" the patients like in Blackstone asylum. In the basement there is a modern laboratory for creepy human experiments (like cloning) and hydrotherapy room with sauna. Sims can actually die in sauna, like they did in hydrotherapy (from heat).

Upstairs is electroshock therapy room and the patients dorm. Because I didn't use any mods, the massage chair is supposed to be some kind of an electric chair, just for show. Doors and windows are barred preventing them escaping. Barring on the front door is fake; the bar is placed that way so your doctor can walk around it to work, but you can still keep the front door locked.

Downstairs is more historic and victorian, upstairs is more modern like a hospital. Patients live mostly upstairs. There is an old attic too, where your housekeeper can live. I realised that even 6 patients make a whole lot of mess and break stuff when you don't control them directly so you need a housekeeper.

Special thanks to AdelaideBuilds for showing such an awesome asylum exterior.
I made the exterior by this speed build guide with my own modifications to make it a lot bigger:

Thanks to simswithcheese for the great idea for an asylum challenge which led me to make my own asylum with my own modified rules ( I didn't find many suitable downloadable asylums anywhere)
