Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Custom designed for a family of five, this house is modern, luxurious, and fits perfectly into any suburban neighborhood. The owners will be the envy of the neighborhood thanks to the sleek exterior, finely decorated interior, and backyard pool.

The adults can relax in spectacular comfort in the living room, or work quietly in their private study. A workshop next to the garage guarantees there will be space for all those hobbies they might want to take up. A spacious kitchen and gorgeous dining room, as well as an outdoor patio and grill, make entertaining those snobby neighbors a breeze.

The children of the house will love having their own rooms, and they will never have to give their bed up for a visiting relative due to the comfortable guest room downstairs. An upstairs playroom allows them space to spread out and make noise, and the backyard pool provides hours of fun. When the day is done, everyone can gather around the fire pit and roast marshmallows and tell ghost stories.

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.

This is nice, but I have to say I downloaded for the music painting. There's too much CC for me to use the house, but it is cool looking. Anyway, thanks for the painting!

Hi there Thought I would say that I can't seem to get this house, it says 'No input file specified.' Which is kind of annoying because I just downloaded all the CC, but, what can you do, eh?

After I install the custom content that wasn't included in the download, will it now show up in the house in game?

Beautiful! I'm house hunting for my sim who has the "Surrounded by Family" lifetime wish and this is definetely an option. It's her, her husband, and her triplets = 5.

This has always been my favorite Sims 3 custom house. Love love love it. Too bad the Sims 3 isn't compatible with my graphics card so I can't play! Still love this house!
