No CC! No spawners! In-game patterns only.
This 4 BR, 4BA house has room for 8!

The backyard has a curved pool with a covered walkway over it. There’s a hot tub off to the side of the backyard. The flame-retardant awning-covered outdoor barbeque is a-ok in any weather. There’s plenty of seating for sitting. There’s chess, guitar, & an outdoor speaker system on the back porch. There’s off-street parking & a bike rack. There’s an outdoor, gated access to the bomb shelter basement. The entire backyard is fenced to keep the in-laws & police… I mean, paparazzi, at bay! A little gardening niche is just around the right front corner of the house.
A Sim’s got plenty of chance to view sunsets & neighbors, with 3 ground floor decks & 3 upper-level balconies. Darts, a bar & a nectar rack can be found on the upper deck overlooking the backyard.

Interior is, well… interior. You’ll find a nicely decorated abode with little details to which even the perfectionist Sim will give a nod. (Note: If a bookcase is emptied, it’s because it’s not freely usable by Sims.)

Basement (Bomb/Fallout Shelter):
Well, hence the name, What Lies Beneath. It is what it is-- Built to sustain a small herd of Sims in case of llamazombieapocolypse. (Have you seen the folks in Twinbrook?! C’mon!)

Oh yeah, … There’s a nifty little secret room with secret passageways to a secret underground lab, but now it’s not so secret… so enjoy! ~PlayinSafe

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.

I am very glad I stumbled across this lot because it is one of my most favorite downloads, namely because it's the embodiment of my 'dream house' excluding the science lab. As I went through each room, I loved the creativity you put in layering items and it's really helpful for new ideas. The color scheme you selected is very relaxing, the house is inviting and perfect for a sim to grow old in while their grandkids can explore its secrets. Kudos to you and I hope to see more from you!
