Castle Le Fay by Tatiana

This is a 4x4 lot (5br/5ba) valued at $169,068 and comes fully furnished.
This specific package has been played/tested for 10 sim days so please forgive a few weeds in the lawn.
It requires everything up to & including Bon Voyage.

I created 37 new walls, 1 picture mesh and 3 rug recolours for this lot.
Many thanks to all of the talented artists who's inspiring cc contributed so much to this lot.



Morgaine Le Fay, a prominent figure of Arthurian Legend, was said to be a sorceress, priestess, queen and would-be world conqueror. Rumoured to be half-human and half-faerie her base of operations was Castle Le Fay in the Valley of Wailing Mists. I have imagined her home to be a place where a lot of living, learning and magic occurs and this mid-sized castle is great for all of these activities. I had so much fun playing it that I kept dragging my feet to actually upload it.

The peasant cottage offers a bit of a retreat for those castle dwellers that need a break from the intensity of Morgaine's personality. In my game, I turned it into a small home business selling various baked goods. The hot-springs provide well-earned relaxation after a hard day of brewing potions.

Please click picture for larger image

Morgaine's magic (and Targa's ascension stairs) allows all sims to move mysteriously through the 5 levels of the castle without all of the tedious climbing of stairs. Medieval tapestries adorn the walls and floors throughout the castle. Morgaine is immortalized in the portrait in the ground floor study and Circe (another "strong" woman is featured in the entrance. A great hall, music room (forgive the modern piano), kitchen, nursery and baths are also found on the ground floor.

You will find the 5 bedrooms located on the 2nd, 3rd & 4th levels as well as various baths & libraries, an art studio and a place to enjoy the healing public bath.

What a nice entry, you decorated it all so beautifully. Like your choices for the grounds, the yellow trees, and flowers are a perfect autumn feel Voting just keeps getting harder for me as I look at each entry! Good luck and splendid building :D

Gorgeous. I always loved Morgan, and this castle just seems like somewhere she would live. It looks creepy but not out of place in the theme; marvelous job!

Thank you mutterfly, EarthGoddess54 and whitesiren. I appreciate you taking the time to drop by & comment.

I was trying to get that autumn feel with being too "Hallowe'enish" and Khaki's wonderful golden shrubby certainly helped me out there.
