'Coral Reef' is a 4 bedroom, 4 bath beach house built on 433 Sunnyside Blvd in Sunset Valley.
Built on stilts in a traditional beach house style, the ground floor has a small room situated beneath the center of the main floor, furnished as a convenient poolside bathroom/changing area. Parking for two cars and two bike racks are beneath the house. (There is room to add more parking if you need it. Cars shown in pic not included on lot.)
A patio with pool and BBQ is on the left side of the yard.

The main floor has open plan kitchen/living and dining with a fireplace and large windows to take advantage of the beach view. There are two small bedrooms and one bathroom on this floor. The front bedroom is furnished as a nursery, the second as a single bedroom. Front deck is partially covered by the balcony above, and there's a fully covered back porch with stairs leading down to the pool area.

The top floor has the very large master bedroom with en suite bathroom and private balcony. There is also another large bedroom, furnished with two single beds, and its own en suite bathroom.

This lot is packaged with one item of custom content, a conversion of a BV travel poster from TS2, packaged for me by Skylar. I have Skylar's permission to distribute this file.

Other custom content not included:

White stair railing and matching fence

Note: if you place this lot as intended on a beach lot, you will lose your 'beautiful vista' buff. You can add a beautiful vista buff back in using this tool:
Beautiful vista buff adjustment
This is not required to use the lot, just to add a beautiful vista buff to it if you want.
Also note that this is not a perfectly flat lot, and may not work well on other lots than the 433 Sunnyside Blvd lot I built it on.

Lot size is 30x30

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.
