Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
In anticipation of the World Adventures EP: a french farmhouse with 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, study loft, fireplaces, skillbuilders, and more. Decorated and fully furnished in the blues and yellows of the french country style. Exterior includes a barn complete with stalls and hay loft which would make a spacious guest house or recreation/party room. There are also orchards and a large mature garden planted by my playtest sim, who is a master gardener...so everything is at least "nice" in quality. Several "mystery seeds" are sprouting and it looks like one of them is a money tree. $69k furnished/$46 furnished on the 30x30 lot size.


Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price: $69k

Number of bedrooms: 3 Bedrooms
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Fully Furnished
Special Flags: Not Applicable

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.

Too Cute! I think this is going to be a favorite for my Sims. I usually download houses that I like just to place in my neighborhood and will visit them occasionally to see how a family is coming along, however, I play my favorite Sims in houses I build, rarely will I choose a downloaded house as a "home". I believe you just changed that as I will have to play this home for a bit. Thank you so much for sharing.

Great job with this, nice idea on the barn doors. I was just thinking yesterday it would be nice if one of the options for the garage door was a barn type door, some reason I never thought of using walls. Excellent work!

I like how you made the interior very Southern France, very Provencal (blue and yellow are typical of the region ^^). Thank you, very nice !

Beautiful! Love the style, its pretty much what i like... It's way too modern how they build houses nowadays. They look awful, at least the houses i have seen around the globe in my very few trips... But this is what real house should look like, great job =)

Thanks.
That's the beautiful house though I wouldn't say it looks like a typical French farmhouse.
I'm French and most farmhouses in France are made of stones and are not shaped like a T. Barns are different too.
Your farmhouse and barn look English to me. ^^

Time and time again I find myself thinking "man this is a great lot!" I then look at the creator's name and of course, it says Ruthless_kk. I immediately think, well no wonder I'm oogling.
