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.

What a gorgeous house,fab floor plan and beautifully decorated. I love the garden and the wonderful little garage/pool house. Those windows are a real find they fit the house perfectly.

Wow, thanks for the lovely feedback guys, you're sweet!

While decorating this lot, I envisioned that this was the kind of weekend getaway house for a Sim who poops gold bullion - you know the type I mean?

Wow, I love how you placed the curtains in the library. It never occured to me to do it that way. The whole house is quite a looker, thanks very much for sharing it

I wanted to download the windows so I could install the house, but it seems that Sims Design Avenue isn't around anymore. Any attempt to access it using the link provided results in a "page cannot be found" type error.
Are there any substitutes that you can use?
