Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This house in the style of Second Empire has everything your upstart Victorian sim needs! House includes formal parlor and living rooms, small music room, formal dining, four bedrooms and one bath downstairs (though one of the smaller beds could easily be converted into another bath upstairs), pool, gazebo, and large attic split into two rooms, one of which could also be used for another bedroom. The driveway accommodates one vehicle, or buggy, and the yard is very low maintenance.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

Coming from an architectural historian--You've done an amazing job here using what's available to recreate second empire era architecture. That looks just like some 19th century mansion from Iowa or Missouri.

Very pretty, I love the almost "antique" look to it, thanks, I love all of your work!

Please do not re-upload my houses or Sims anywhere, even if it is just refurnished.


Thank you for your consideration.

This is so beautiful! I love all your work really... sad part is I never move sims into these houses, but I simply download em just to get inspired from your work! Haha, I love this house, with a bit touching up this could look very much like a haunted house! Infact (I dunno if you've ever heard of this) but it reminds me of this one ride in Disneyland paris called "Phantom Manor." It looks very much alike but I guess it must have been a style of homes back in the late 1800s? You are so good at these aged houses, I love them very much! Keep up the excellent work!

I have this ridiculous love of Second Empire houses... and I love this house in a way that is totally ridiculous. It's absolutely beautiful, and you've really managed to capture the feel that a house from this era would have. Awesome job!

this is the first lot i've ever downloaded, and i love it! thank you ! ! !

my personal life can be supported by veiwing this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-n2z-Q6x6eU and others on my youtube page. I believe there's a few building tutorials there aswell. I create rather sporadically, so excuse me if I'm gone from this website for months or years at a time.

Jealousy would be far less torturous if we understood that love is a passion entirely unrelated to our merits.

I love the photos but it doesn't work in my game... All the custom content doesn't appear, instead, I see only the default windows, etc... So my question is: to see your wonderfull work, do I have to install something else in my game? Is there any software or crack or I don't know that is needed? I specify that I put my downloads in the download folder and also I have University and Nightlife, as require your houses... Can you help me?

Under game settings, make sure that the option which came with Nightlife that does not allow custom content is turned off. Other than that, I'm not sure what to recommend other than to delete the lot from you DL forlder and re-install it. =/
