Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
In anticipation of the World Adventures EP: a french farmhouse with 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, study loft, fireplaces, skillbuilders, and more. Decorated and fully furnished in the blues and yellows of the french country style. Exterior includes a barn complete with stalls and hay loft which would make a spacious guest house or recreation/party room. There are also orchards and a large mature garden planted by my playtest sim, who is a master gardener...so everything is at least "nice" in quality. Several "mystery seeds" are sprouting and it looks like one of them is a money tree. $69k furnished/$46 furnished on the 30x30 lot size.


Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price: $69k

Number of bedrooms: 3 Bedrooms
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Fully Furnished
Special Flags: Not Applicable

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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.

Thank you! I rarely play any other lots than those made by you, and this is one of my favourites. Just the right size and so cozy and authentic feeling!

I'm a lousy builder but I love decorating/furnishing and your floorplans are always great and inspirational.

This house can go in whichever town you prefer and on any 30x30 lot or larger. That part is all up to you.

Whoa! This is....stunning! I love it! Gorgeous! :o I can't wait to play it...actually, I can't wait until my family gets enough simoleons to move in! I came here looking for a house under 45,000 simoleons because that is their budget, but it looks like I should just have them make due in their current house until they can afford this one!
