Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Ok well this has to be the longest time i have -ever- spent working on a house, it is also the first time that i have ever made a house with lowered back, not really sure what you call that, but the front is on one level and the back is a level down I have taken this to creator feedback and #create to get feedback and ideas on it and it is finally done! I also learnt a few new tricks with this house, i learnt that holding down the "alt" key turned the grid snapping off yes i didn't know that before this house, i tried to use new techniques and such to make it more interesting so i hope you like it.

The house has 3 floors, the main floor (first floor) which is the lower house, the second floor above that is the upper house. On the level at the bottom is the guest house, the whole level, only accesible from the outside, is devoted to being a guest house, the overall house was so large it made sense to have a completely self serving guest house There is also a pool out the back for all of the house to use and there is a double garage as well as 2 parking spots on the driveway

Lower House:
*Entrance Hall/ Living Area
*Dining Room
Upper House:
*Master Bedroom
*2 Further Bedrooms
Guest House:
*Living Area/ Study
*2 Bedrooms
*2 En-suites


Pictures of the back, pool area, and floor plans can be found in the attachments

Lot Size: 40x40
Furnished: £242,843
UnFurnished: £124,297

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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.

Does it sound bad if I say I like the back side of it better than the front ;D

Awesome house! Thanks! I think this is your best yet.

I believe they are called hillside homes and yours is great!

Love the little apartment downstairs.
Coffee, anyone?

This is so well done. The little touches and attention to detail are such a joy. Thank you for sharing.

I'm worried that my latest Salvation Army donation will result in homeless people looking like sluts from the 90s.

This is, hands down, the best TS3 house I've seen to date.

Awesome work!

I absolutely LOVE this house, thank you!!!

Through our bleeding, we are one.
Through the darkness breaks the light.
Through the light unending pain.
Deify the wretched ones till the darkness comes again.

This turned out really, really good. I read a lot in the Creator Feedback area on your home, so I know it must have taken you a while. But I think your hard work has payed off a bunch. Thanks so much! (P.S, I just learned than 'alt' trick today !)

I have downloaded the house but, it errors when I try to open it to install. Any suggestions, because I really can't wait to play it, it's so beautiful from the pictures.
