By-gone Shores, the weathered victorian beach house, stands cold and alone on the shore line. Nobody can remember the last time it was lived in, but it was most probably before the war. Now in modern society this house stands up against all storms that both people and the sea can throw at it. And yet no one dares to enter......

I designed and built this lot with the Apocalypse theme in mind, it's a design lays roots in that of the houses on Sun Song Avenue in Sunset Valley, and in the Fallout Series. (mostly Fallout: 3 and Fallout: New Vegas)

But anyway, it was designed and built for a specific lot which i placed here:

The House has no cc. and is built with basegame and ambitions, although, as far as i am aware it is made entirely of basegame content. It sits on a 20 by 30 lot, which costs 84,450 simoleons furnished and 52,150 unfurnished.

On the groundfloor you will find; two porches, a kitchen, parlour and dinning room.
Upstairs you will find; a landing, office, two large bedrooms, a bathroom and another large veranda/porch.
Then finally, upstairs in the attic you will find; a landing/storage area and three single bedrooms.(one with a balcony)
If you haven't seen it already, I've made a pre-appocalypse version which can be found here, I hope you will appreciate it too.

Lot Size: 2x3
Lot Price: 84,450

Number of bedrooms: 5 or more
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.

This is a place worth cleaning up for a non-apocalyptic town as well.

I put this house in my game where you have it and it's wonderful. Right on the water and I love how you decorated it. The only problem I had was I have four people living there so I had to squeeze in another Great job, thank you!

Both versions of this house give me an idea for a story

All I would need for this version is some torn window drapes and broken tables and similar ("my sims survived the apocalypse")

Or, "my sims found this falling apart old house and decided to renovate it"
