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.

It looks beautiful, but hard to play in game. There are no stairs to the basement and no stairs from the main floor to the second floor. Still needs work, But great idea.

I don't know why you said there are no stairs, please refer to the floor plans' screenshots, there are spiral stairs from basement to the second floor and other stairs from second floor to attic. May be you don't get all the Eps I listed!!

This house is very well done.. makes me think of an HGTV Dream House

-- it truly is stunning and I'm surprised it hasn't been "featured" or even "picked".

Ung, I love your houses and may have most of your residential uploads in my game. I am searching for Tuscan styled homes and run across this gem, would I be wrong putting it in Monte Vista? LOL, I just might have to do that. This lot is gorgeous.

Thank you very much for another amazing upload.

If you don't have some Eps, I'm not sure whether it can be installed or not. You can try and let me know, thanks!
