A new expansion pack means new not-so-pretty EA homes to makeover! Lakeside Place is my version of the Jones-Brown house from Twinbook, a home close to the water at 4 Poker Flats Drive.



Consisting of 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (with an extra nursery for the little ones) the modern home is perfect for a well established family.



Although moderately priced at $97862 fully furnished ($56013 unfurnished), Lakeside Place comes with everything your Sims need to enjoy life, with perfect views to match.



Situated on a 30 x 20 lot the home is full of surprises, including the secluded and peaceful back garden, complete with waterfall.



Inspect today, and enjoy!

Custom Content Used
Seaside Carved Kind-of-a-Curio Curio -EA Store

NB - I also used the fog-emitter from buydebug (Ambitions) to create the waterfall effect.

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.

Love what you've done with the place I have to agree - there are plenty of ugly houses in Twinbrook - In fact, I'm disappointed with the whole town! Went back to Sunset Valley pretty quick, I must say...
Nice job!

Thanks all!
Night_Racer I hope to make over a few more of these homes in a similar style, it's just finding the time to do so!

Wndy26 - unfortunately his house does require ambitions as I used alot of content and the fog-emitter from buydebug in building it.

Do I need to buy the EA store content for this house to work?

No you don't, those items will just be replaced by similar EA items or left blank. As I only used very minimal store CC, I doubt you would barely notice the items were missing, the home is fully functional without them.

... You've taken a house I loathe and made it into a house I absolutely adore. It looks expensive, but in a way that's warm and pleasant. It reminds me of some of the more gorgeous houses you run into in the L.A. area - the quirkier little beach houses - while not being at all reminiscent of the bourgeois and ugly ones.

Your use of patterns and colors is downright inspirational, and that garden is just amazing. Thanks.

Edit: Grrr. High End Loft Stuff. Grr. Ah well, my praise still stands. xP
