Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
My first Sims 3 upload, it took me ages to perfect. Enjoy!

Furnished: $89.593
Unfurnished: $60.712
Lotsize: 40x30

Sunflower Breeze
This charming new-built house is ideal for small families or for your rich single sim.
The house has a very modern open kitchen with lots of workspace. The great amount of full length windows make this house very light and give your sims the feeling as if they were part of the nature that surrounds the house.
The house has a small built-in garage with space for bikes or if you don't own a bike the garage could easily be transformed into a study or even a small bedroom if you wish.

There are 2 bedrooms upstairs and a large bathroom.

At the back of the house you'll find a big sun-drenched terrace with a BBQ spot and even a pool. The big pond is part of your land and home to loads of fish.

The best location to place this house is on the street where the Crumplebottom mansion is (I think that's the best place for any 4x3 lot ).

[Update]: There wasn't any counter available for sims to prepare their food, so I deleted the middle cabinet above the kitchen counters and replaced it with the hanging pots and pans. Everything works fine now.

I've made a tutorial for building a pool in a pond/lake:

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.

Simply Stunning!

I saw this in CF, I'm so glad you uploaded it! And as I said in CF the pillars with the trees in them very creative. I've tried several different pillars and trees and you found the best match!

I absolutely love this house!! I end up trying out a ton of lots to find The Perfect One. This might just be it.

Edit: It seems that my Sims cannot "Have [Meal]..." or "Serve [Meal]..." ever since they moved into this house via fridge & stove. They can open the fridge, eat leftovers (which were from their previous house) & have a quick meal. It is stocked as when I opened it, there were items. I'm not sure what's wrong? I even tried replacing it with another fridge to no avail.
