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.

Simply stunning! I'm so glad to see it here on MTS. I put it on Horseshoe Loop near the Equestrian Center and it still fit nicely. You work like a professional designer of both architecture and interior to make this a rare gem of the 50x50. Thank you.

The house is beautiful, but the sims will sometimes swim in the ground, or stand in the water of the pool. That's the glitch I've found so far.

Thanks! I like the house!

This is great! I was trying to find some big houses for the empty lots in Appaloosa Plains and this is perfect!
