Does this house seem somewhat... familiar? It might be the house that Snow White found when she stumbled across the Seven Dwarves. Or maybe it's the cottage where the three good fairies hid Princess Aurora for 16 years? Or I suppose it could even be the home of the infamous Three Bears (a nasty lot, as Goldilocks will happily attest). This is also probably where Queen Cimorene hid with her son, and where Grandmother lived (you know.... "Over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house we go!") The fisherman even lived here for a while, but his wife decided that they needed to leave and find a bigger house.

This house has probably appeared in many fairytales. Or maybe not... the only thing we know for sure is that this is definitely not the house that Jack built.



Yeah... that was lame, I know. But I really can't just place this cottage in one story, because it was inspired by many fairytale houses. So please, come inside and take a look around! Don't dawdle though--there are chores to do, and the golden eggs aren't going to pick themselves up, you know! But the work won't be too difficult, and as long as you stay virtuous and kind-hearted, you'll probably be rewarded by a beautiful fairy or a passing stranger. Your step-mother might be a bit angry with you, but it's nothing personal--she's just upset that Prince Charming opted not to marry either of her daughters.

Happy Simming!

Lot Size- I can take a guess, but nothing in the Enchanted Forest ever stays in one place long enough to know for sure.
Price- Two bags of golden straw, or your daughter's hand in marriage. Willing to haggle.

It doesn't require any Expansions, strangely enough, I checked!
Yes, Ella Enchanted, Sleeping Beauty, all of these come to mind.

This is so beautiful! I agree that this house could've been in so many fairytales, that it's hard to place it in just one. I can't wait to use this! =)
