Having fallen for the beauty of the first film, I decided to give the original games a try. I have to say I wish I had discovered them sooner. But anyway, I wanted to recreate/create a house inspired by the Gillespie House, home to Dhalia and Alessa Gillespie.

The trouble was, I didn't like the interior layout that the house has in the game, as seen here. So I went for something more historically accurate considering that the Gillespie House was inspired by a real house; the Olson House in Maine.

And so I thought that I might combine the two, and create a historical New England home with a Silent Hill feel to it.

I'm quite pleased with the outcome and intend to remodel it into a recreation of the Olson home later on this year.
Lot Info:
The Gillespie house is built on a 30 by 30 lot costing 118,093 Simoleons furnished and 77,338 Simoleons unfurnished. The house has 6 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms and an outhouse. There's also a shed in the garden and a cellar accessed by a ladder in a kitchen cupboard.
I'd like to thank SimmyRN, Johnny Bravo, lulume, cutsocks, klaartje68 and Tigerhydr over at CFF for helping me with feedback on this lot.

I intend on uploading more pictures of the lot in the comments section, so be sure to check there.

Lot Size: 3x3

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.

Bwah, creepy as hell XD
This is even better that an exact copy. I mean, really, who has such a giant room on their first floor and nothing else? Except weird cult leaders, apparently.
Anyways, thanks for sharing

I love the pure symmetry of this house without the spookieness but the spookieness makes it a 10++

The exterior is really lovely in its form. You want to paint it and landscape it with lots of flowers and maybe a stone wall and garden path. It's one of those houses with lots of potential. But not everything in the world is sweetness and light, so a touch of realistic shabbiness is good.

If it was, they would have blown the house up or demolished it by now, given the reputation that show has, lol. If they did that to my historic home I'd blow them up as well.
P.S. Thanks for all the comments and feedback.

I love the Silent Hill series so this very quickly caught my eye. Might have to recreate the Gillespie family and move them in. Now only if we could have our sims perform burning rituals on one another then I could recreate the event that started it all!

awesome design and very alike to the original but found something out when i actually played in it, sim cant get up the first stairs due to the second stairs being above it, he will get to the top and instantly turn around on the stairs without stopping at the top and go back down, tried fixing it but couldnt get anything to work with it

Oh dear, not that trouble again. Unfortunately I'm not able to fix it at the moment as my laptop is well and truly broken. But I will update this upload with a fixed version as soon as I can.

Great creation, though it can't be called "Gillespie House" because the interior is completely different from what can be seen in Silent Hill: Origins.

I believe I've fixed the trouble with the staircase. I've attached a picture of the revised attic floor plan.

I didn't realize this was for The Sims 3 and now I'm super disappointed
My own fault, I guess.

This is fabulous! Not sure how I missed this before. It's perfect for post apocalyptic/dystopian neighborhoods.
