You will need the Lifestyle Build Bundle for some of the wallpapers, if you want them - you can always substitute whatever wall you choose.

--- You may need to have Numenor's Unlevel Wall - #90 - I use this wall all the time as it is such a forgiving wall to build with
Click the info button below to see how I suggest installing this wall
NOTE: If you decide NOT to use Numenor's Wall #90, there may be missing wall sections or pieces of the WroughtIron fence in place of walls.

Lot Size: 20X40
Lot Price: $99,544

Hilltop Bungalow
Pleasantview, circa 1946

This house has been hangin' around my game for a while now (Actually, since 1946 - would you believe it! No? Oh...) Well, I have enjoyed playing it with a few different families and I hope you'll like it too. I've changed several things around to make it upload friendly - please make more changes as you see fit to make it your house. It is a split level bungalow on a sloped lot (I used Inge Jones graded 10% slope lot template - TQ Inge!) And I built it for a specific lot - see the neighborhood picture below (but, it can go wherever you want it to go.)

This house, built in 1946, was last lived in by a young family with a new baby - who asked to remain anonymous. They were only in the house a few short weeks, when they suddenly put the house back on the market and left town (I think they moved in with her great-aunt?) Anyway, they left all their belongings and have instructed me to just "Sell that place!" I've had the house inspected, and it is deemed perfectly sound. However, the inspector did say he'd never seen an attic quite like that before. "Wild!" he said, with a shake of his head, "But, it is a very nice, well built, quaint - ahhh, well deceptively quaint, little starter home." So, without any further ado, I present to you, The Hilltop House.

~~~~~~~~ The following info pertains to the OLD/original lot only; it is not necessary for the 2021 Remake! ~~~~~~~~

  • Lot size: 20X40 (2X4) - HILLSIDE/sloped lots ONLY.
  • Around 1,391 sq ft covered living space - 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath, family room, office, living and dining rooms, patio, kitchen, and a secret hidden attic studio (accessible via transporter pad only,) decked pool, and a spectacular view of Pleasantview - if you situate this lot as I did.
  • Around $37,314 simoleons - I say "around" because I have extensively re-organized my build/buy catalogues and, in doing so, re-priced most everything. I don't know if this will effect the cost in your game or not. If it does, maybe your Sims qualify for a huge tax break? Inheritance? Or, it's their turn to win the lottery?
  • Furnished - Kitchen appliances, bathroom fixtures, flooring, wallpaper, lights and ceiling fans included. PLUS all the furnishings your family will need to be comfortable.
  • Wired for cable/TV
  • Phone already installed
  • Alarm systems included (invisible - for both fire and burglar)
  • A cozy color scheme with lots of blue, pink and dark woods - textured ceilings throughout
  • Ceiling fans in both bedrooms
  • Earth-friendly reclaimed shingles and highly polished old wood floors
  • Double-paned windows
  • An advanced retaining wall system (by tbudgett) Hillside erosion will not be a problem
  • Quality Maxis doors and windows
  • Mature Trees: including dogwoods, scotch pine, magnolia, plumeria, birch, and Rowan
  • And a stupendous view of beautiful downtown Pleasantview

EDIT>>> I just realized that I didn't mention where the teleporter device is... I used SimWardrobe's teleporter - which looks like an LP sized CD on the floor. In the "Attic" picture (below) you can see it on the right. The downstairs end of the teleporter is located in the study/office. Sorry for the omission!

*** This is a HILLSIDE LOT! ***
This house is NOT built on a level lot - it is meant to go on a sloped lot, one that drops away in back (as your facing the house, from the street view.) Sometimes sloped lots can mess up your neighborhood. So, please back up your neighborhood before installing anything.

Credit & Thanks:
To all the wonderfully talented creators & re-colorers whose work I have used in this house: THANK YOU!!! You all make the Sims truly fun!
