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......

But it wasn't always that way...

There once was a time when By-gone Shores went by a different name, and was known as part of the early Sunset Valley community. Although many aren't old enough to remember the days when grand parties were held where dancing and dinning would last the whole night through in a house which was once the height of coastal fashion, the Goths were said to have graced many of the parties, and were even said to have owned one of the neighbouring beach houses, which since then have been reclaimed by the sea, forcing the Goths to retreat back up the hil.
But today I bring you a shining glimmer of the past, inspired by a comment on the weathered and decaying version, which can be found here.

The house is costs 93,576 Simoleons furnished, and 58,168 Simoleons unfurnished, it requires a 20 by 40 lot which I placed here:

I hope you will enjoy this much enlightened version of one of my favourtie creations.

Lot Size: 2x4
Lot Price: 93,576 Simoleons

Additional Credits:
I really want to thank Collector whom gave me the idea to fix up By-gone Shores.
I would also like to thank those who helped me on the creator feedback forum; especialy:
Tee Hee Hee,
and WaterHornet.
I wouldn't have gotten this far without you guys (and girl).
P.s. I'm sorry it took this long. And another thing that inspired me to do this was seeing Traelia's Forgotten and then her Remembered, They're both just wonderful and inspirational lots, and well worth a look, and download

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.

Glad to have been of help.

The sort of old and interesting buildings you do are great because they can be used at whatever stage of their life fits best with the style of a town. They can be owned by people with a feel for tradition or remodelled by the nouveau-riche with more money than taste. Even when they're old and abandoned they're fun to explore or maybe be taken over by squatters.

Thanks! I hope the name is alright, I'm still not sure what to call it and will consider changing it in the future, once a better name has been found. I don't really do modern, the most modern I like really is Edwardian/Art Deco, I just love the Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian and authentic Medieval/Tudor styles, I have even planned my dream eclectic Victorian styled home on Sims 3 which I am considering uploading, although have yet to be persuaded, especially as I have many others in a queue waiting to be finished and uploaded, as well as a world filled with older styled homes, so I have quite a lot to do as well as college work

And p.s. I would really love too see your dream home you created for The Sims3

You extract the sims3 file and then place it in your downloads folder. From then you can then install it from the sims 3 launcher.

I'm going to move Agnus Crumplebottom into it as it seems like a better fit than the house she's in now. Thanks for building it.
