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.

Q, this is gorgeous! It looks just like a lot of the lovely house estates I see around town here in the pricey old neighborhoods. The subtle building details are exquisite. It's devastating that you don't make these fantastic houses for TS2 anymore :'( The lighting you use for your screenshots is almost poetic. I love them all. Congrats on your 1M+ download count as well! <3

Well, Q, this is just fantastic. This whole lot is just so well put together, it's just amazing to look at!

Absolutely marvelous. Great job and thank you very much for sharing with us all!
#12 Old 18th Mar 2013 at 3:33 PM
Dude, this is seriously one of my favourite lots you've ever build. I swear to god though, every lot you build is just better than the last and surpasses any skill I have by a million miles. It's actually ridiculous!
Coffee, anyone?

Really, you only need base game (as with every lot) but the lot would be very, very bland

I would not recommend it. The outside will /probably/ look the same, but the inside will not.

Now streaming on at or - whichever is easier for you to type in your browser.
