Well I don't know if the name really fits or not, but the lot did end up being what I wanted when I started so all is good! This is built on a sloped lot in Sunset Valley, just down the road from the Wolf house on the beach. With the new in game editor you should be able to place anywhere and fix the terrain but it will look best on a sloped lot. The lot really is 25x20 not the 20x20 it says below, this is because the uploader only allows lot sizes that end in zero.

The lot is fully furnished on the main level and has an unfurnished lower level, just one large room. This can be expanded to add bedrooms and bathrooms or a large family play area. There isn't any clutter or much of any decorative stuff since my sims live in uncluttered houses just as I do. Just consider it ready for you to add your own personal touches.

The lot was made with Base, WA, HELS, and AMB installed. If you have the AMB patch installed for any of your games this lot will install fine, it just will be missing the build/buy/patterns from the other two EPs.

Lot Size: 2x2
Lot Price: F §33,276 / U §25,71
Number of bedrooms: 1 Bedroom
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Fully Furnished
Special Flags: Not Applicable

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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.

Gorgeous! It meets everything on the checklist for a unique, cute and summery beach house! I love that pergola toward the back and the wrap around porch/balcony

Oh the countless nights that could be spent on that deck! Not to mention the killer view! The view from the deck or the view from the window...... Oh the dilemma! :p

where are you supposed to place this? near the 3 coastal lots?
#12 Old 15th Jul 2010 at 4:01 PM
I always like to play in houses that take me a way to some wonderful place, and your beach house does that!
#13 Old 15th Jul 2010 at 7:36 PM
Ooooh I love it. It has a very quaint feel. I love the back; the stone goes very well with the blue siding. Thank you for your hard work!

You know what? I almost never download other houses, and usually only play in ones I made myself, but this one has a really unique charm, is beautiful, and yet still looks very playable. I LOVE it! Thanks!!
