So I haven't been around for a bit... well a lot, and I thought I'd jump on the Ancient Bandwagon!!

This is basically what used to be an ancient Roman country villa that has managed to survive the centuries, be looked after and dragged into the present day :D

I took the floorplan from some of my old Classical Civilisation lessons at 6th from and built the house (loosely) based upon what I found obviously I couldn't follow it completely as it's nigh on impossible, and also because i wanted to add many many things to it, like a sauna at the back, and a temple and things!! Though originally it would have actually had the plants growing in the yard at the front and the majority of the plan is at least similar to the plans I found

First off, this does need only one fairly important piece of CC, the DIY build set, by Armiel, found here I would hide it in a pretty link but I can barely make text bold PLEASE DOWNLOAD IT!! As not only is it incredible and the one bit of CC I use without fail, the villa will look dodgy without it!!!

This Villa has four bedrooms (5 if you include the cupboard where I have the butler sleep near the nectar cellar) and it has six bathrooms!!

It's on a 50x50 lot and costs 206,908 Unfurnished and... wait for it... 422,921 Furnished!!

First Floor Master Bedroom

I think that should be enough photos!! I have to be honest, I'm really proud of this, and I don't think the photo's do it justice at all!! You'll just have to download it and see if you agree :P

Thankyou for looking!! I hope you enjoy playing with this house as much as I do!!!

Much Love,

Craig :D

Lot Size: 5x5
Lot Price: 422,921

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.

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.

It is agreat house but from my stuies it seems to have on major historical flaw; naked wood. The romans used a form of plaster on all wooden surfaces and prefered stone pillars like those you put ouside indors as well

Wow- so nice! It has great little intimate spaces and yet it is huge!

Too bad I need a cheaper house for a roman challenge... I'll come and get this one in a few generations, lol
