I finally got around to make a Bridgeportversion of my "Modern Dark Villa". The previous version were only suitible for Sunset Valley since that one was a souterrainhouse (spelling?) and Bridgeport doesnt supply many souterrainlots. I found one however and made an entirely new house on it.

- Two bedrooms with a great view
- Guestbedroom
- Bathroom
- TV-area
- Laundryroom
- Storageroom

First floor:

- Entrence
- Kitchen
- Diningarea
- Lounge
- Terrace

Second floor:
- Masterbedroom with walk-in closet
- Bathroom
- Library / Office
- Big balcony with retractable sunroof

The house also got a poolarea adjecent to the house also with a retractable sunroof.





A boy´s room and a girl´s room:


The masterbedroom with walk-in closet:




Lotsize: 35 X 25
Cost furnished: 179.000 $
Cost unfurnished: 108.000 $


Purpousebuilt for:
152 Windsor Drive

The current lot must be erazed and replaced with a 35X25 lot according to the attached picture.

Thanks to Amiao103. Her houses have inspired me to the style of the roof and the sunblockers / Sunroofs. Check her stuff out, they are great...

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.

Wow...you have a bedroom that is smaller than the laundry room. I would hate to be the kid stuck in that room...lol. Nice house though. Love the modern feel of it and the way you did the yard and decorating inside.

Such attention to detail; I love that you actually hooked up a ventilation system for the house! So much more realistic now!

Can you build a flat-lot version, for custom neighborhoods?

I probably wont do it any time soon. No energy for it atm. But if you wanna have a go yourself then it´s quite easy to remake this one for flat lots. Just place it on a flat lot, eraze the windows and walls in the kid-rooms and replace with foundation so you have foundation all around the house. After that, just flatten the land outside...

If I make one myself, I let you know...

Thanks!

I dont really know how long it took to make it, time flies when I do it . But I would guess somewhere in the region of 10 - 15 hours or so.

Okay, I'll try it myself, but sometimes when I place lots that aren't flat on flat land, the game decides to go bonkers, even if I fix the house, usually something goes wrong later :D

Hey m8.

If you hold down "ALT"-key, while placing and rotating, that allowes you to do so with more accuracy. Please try it out and let me know if you need more help.

I play that house since decades! Great job, so fashionable with a dark vibe.
