It has 1 bedroom, 1 bath, a study, 3 fireplaces and is styled in a slightly medieval flavor with tones of moss green and bark browns. A flowing stream runs nearby and crossing the bridge by the willow tree leads to the patio and outdoor eating area, as well as a lovely fishing hole.

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.

I love this place. It would be nice to have one in a similar design with more bedrooms for a family.

OMG! I want to live here! This is so beautiful and such a wonderful atmosphere. I agree that a larger size or a series would make wonderful neighborhood. Thanks for this great home!!!

Thanks for the feedback...I admit it is a bit small, but I was thinking of a single lonely princess isolated in the woods. Since there is an interest, I will see what I can come up with for a family.

There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.

Your lots always make me very happy, and this one is no exception!

See my blog for my very latest lots, including some that are not available on MTS2: Twoflower's Sims 2 Lots. Also, see what's happening in Apple Grove, my Prosperity Challenge neighborhood.

I normally only download lots with more than one bedroom but this is sooo adorable! I cannot wait to play it. I might also modify it to make it bigger but it is just so cute as is. Maybe I will just have to try to change my game play. It will be a challenge! (Now where did I put my cape?)

In my haste to thank you I forgot to say thanks! Thank you for this contribution!!! It does have so much potential as it stands and as a starting point to make larger. I downloaded it, quickly sent off my comment and started to log off before I even thanked you! Thank you soooo much!!!!

You know something is appreciated when we all just download and sign off to play with it! Okay... now off to play! Thank you!!!!

... I love cottages in the middle of nowhere, I love Victorian style, and I even love San Francisco-style cramped houses, especially when they're as crazy (crazy tends to equal accurate, from what I've seen of San Fran xD) as you do them... Gaaaah. Gorgeous. Everything's bloody gorgeous. I'm squealing over here, you know, Lol.

I love your use of brick in this, and your use of the differently-patterned walls (using the wood criss-cross-y wall patterns with brick, over the entryway? omg.). It pulls off a fairytale look while still seeming realistic, like a normal house with just that hint of magic to it. I can find nothing I could possibly object to, and again, I love your use of fireplaces, and little nooks and crannies for book-reading or whatnot.

If you made it any larger you would lose that "cottage" feel- beautiful work!
