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.

A nice job. It's a good house for some rich Sims especially in the french (parisian) future style. Thank you !

I am so releived that someone French thinks it actually looks french. I was worried that I might not be reflecting the style properly. Thank you for letting me know it is ok.

Really pretty. I usually prefer modern homes or the more traditional American craftsmans and the like, but I think I'll have to find a place for this in my town. The interior decorating is great, too.

I would LOVE to see this place as a 60x60 mansion, if you decide to expand it in the future. Either way, this version is fantastic. Thanks for sharing!
