A little peeling black paint never hurt nobody, right? On either side of Number 12, the once grand town houses have been converted into decaying, cheap walk up flats and offices for muggles. (No doors are marked NPC, but they do include hidden room markers, and public room markers.)

Grimmauld Place is my favourite location in the Harry Potter novels; so I've decided to recreate in the Sims. This version was inspired by the descriptions of the decaying georgian townhouse in the novels and my imagination, with no real dedication paid to recreating the film version.

Street access, servants kitchen and eating area (famously taken over by members of the Order of the Phoenix), cloak room, pantry, storage.

Ground floor:
Parlor, dining room.

1st floor:
Drawing room (complete with family tree tapestry, doxy laden drapes, and a nasty writing desk), a bedroom (Hermione & Ginny's), a bathroom.

2nd floor:
2 bedrooms (including Harry & Ron's... don't listen to the portrait), a study, a bathroom.

3rd floor:
Master bedroom, ensuite, bathroom, nursery bedroom.

4th floor:
Sirius' bedroom (decked in Gryffindor colours and posters of muggles permanent-sticking-charmed to the walls), Regulus' bedroom (decked in Slytherin colours), shared half bathroom.

Empty. (Not really a 'room', it uses fences for walls.)

The home has been completely playtested (my current legacy family lives here); perhaps some mirrors will be inaccessible as some are placed decoratively, I can not recommend lighting the fires without first making them fireproof, or installing a suitable mod - they inhabit very cluttered areas.
