Inspired by Bernal Heights Residence in San Francisco, this cozy residence is the perfect house for your more urban Sims.

It's a three-story, fully furnished villa designed with a desire to create a contemporary expression that feels distinctly clean and modern. I tried to make every single room give off its own unique vibe, so that every door you open would create a new experience. Even so, I wanted to make sure that it all came came together nicely, which is why I used a lot of wood and bricks when designing the rooms.

The only custom content I've used is Buggybooz's KitchenBasic set. Now, normally I wouldn't use CC at all, but for this particular house I felt it was the right thing to include. After trying many different kitchen counters, I finally realized that none were as good as Buggybooz's.

Small notice: The recliner in the first bedroom is unusable since it's on an angle (Don't ask me why, ask Maxis). It looks better that way, though!

Thank you for the comments! The idea to put the kitchen on the top floor actually comes from the real-life building which this one is based on.

Did I really say that?
- Well, at least yesterday is behind us now.
Not actually evil.

I am once again amazed by the talent than create something like this using Maxis only (except for the kitchen set) content!

You just click on the "Active Ceiling" button and then you can repaint the ceiling with any floor tile. The "Apartment Life" expansion pack is required for this, though.
