This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
My love of high-English architecture in all aspects is relatively unparalleled, so I began building this little gem a while ago and after forgetting about its existence, rekindled its construction. =3 It can comfortably accommodate between six and eight sims, boasting 24 rooms, including five bedrooms and four baths with the possibility of one or more of either, lounge, study, library, ballroom, conservatory, music room and low maintenance but attractive grounds. It sits on a 5x3 lot and will set your simmies back a none-too-hefty 178,699 simoleans, unfurnished.

Indeed - its too bad we can't do more architecturally with The Sims 2 engine. Maybe we'll get lucky with Sims 3. Hah. & Thank you!

Yes, this must be a feature! We all know you couldn't use the maxis items to build that. It is gorgeous and stupendous. I am wordless. :O All I can say is great job!

Stunning! I love the brick and smooth stone combination you used, it's so English :D. This is an incredible piece of architecture, and it does deserve a feature. Thank you!

What a creative use of columns - It's very impressive and beautiful. You did everything right from dimensions to the color of the exterior brick. Very nice job! The entrance and the tower are very nice touches that make the house very typical of the style. I can't stress this enough. It is gorgeous.

What an absolutely beautiful building! I have always loved this style of architecture, along with Georgian architecture. Really lovely!

Ooohhhh. I love it! I agree with the others in saying that it should be featured. I think you were very creative in the architecture. I have been looking for a new house for one of the noble families in my Royal Kingdom Challenge neighborhood. The house they have now is very tiny but I got a new computer that can now handle lots like this one (their daughter is engaged to the king, I think they diserve a house as nice as this one.).

has no one else noticed that this is basically the house from Clue with another floor tacked on? Nice job though.
