Welcome to Flamingo Heights!  The lot you're viewing is number 7 - The El Dorado!  Have you ever wanted to go to Africa?  Do you dream of living on the lands of the wild safari?  Now you can!  Here in our neighborhood, with our latest home design in likeness of the beautiful culture of central Africa.  Come join us in Flamingo Heights today!


Custom content is required for this lot!  Please see the links below!

Hello Simmers!  Here I bring to you another home of my design which I titled the El Dorado.  It is a small one bedroom home designed as a starter or permanent home for your Sims, from my MCM neighborhood of Flamingo Heights.   Big enough for a single Sim or a couple.  The home is designed in late 1950s Atomic Age and Mid-Century style, with the primary interior theme being central African and Safari asthetic.  The use of colors here are earth-based tones, for a more colorfully relaxed and calming feel among the theme chosen for this build.  The home features one full bathroom, a dining room, living room, laundry room, and a full kitchen.  There is a patio space with a raised in-ground pool adorned with a decorative balustrade to accent the home's design.  Indeal for the nearly constant warm climate of Flamingo Heights (Oasis Springs in your game).  I built the home in one night, for which I'm pleased with the ending results.  I used the moveObjects cheat for most of the objects placement, especially when designing the living room and bedroom windows.  I feel the dividers placed inside the windows gave them a wonderfully unique look that goes with the home very well.  There are two walkways on both sides of the house that lead to the rear and front of the home.  These could possibly be converted into driveways if you wish in the future, but the space will be limited.  I hope you all enjoy this one, and be sure to watch for my future creations here on Modthesims.   As well as my other homes and buildings currently uploaded here!    

NOTE:  You can download the home without the CC but it will be devoid of ALL furniture except for the kitchen, laundry and patio!

Woah...those kitchen floor tiles are actually real. I have a MCM house I just bought and I'm going to redo the kitchen tile with that exact tile ! Guess I have to snag this lot!

I actually never knew that The floor tiles came with a set of retro tiles, so they're all probably based on real designs.

This is gorgeous! Took me forever to figure out how to navigate blacky's site lol (the links for the two mods from that site did not lead to the mods, just the site), but I'm very excited to play on this lot! Where did you build it?

Sorry about the confusion at Blacky's site, it was that for me too and it changes often but the mods are still located there, thankfully. I'm glad you like my home design! I built it in Oasis Springs, but in my own game I renamed the town to Flamingo Heights using the neighborhood rename mod tool from the Sims 4 Studio website.

For that reason, I'm thinking of using them more often now in future builds!
