Croydon House No 1, Greater London
two separate single-family houses ~ meant to go side-by-side
based on a RL semi-detached, freehold property in England
Both Houses
3 bedrooms - 2.5 bathroom - 1 driveway
larger houses - pet friendly - fully fenced back yards/gardens

~~~ No CC! (But, you will need Numenor's Unlevel Wall #90 for the CFE'd walls under the swoopy-roof bits) ~~~

I found the original "Inspiration" houses while randomly Google-traveling through the UK, in search of your typical suburban neighborhood:

Both of these houses are a comfortable size for a family of four, with equally comfortable price-tags: $81K and $77K, fully furnished. The kitchens are fully equipped, and with fire alarms; bars are included, and telephones are located in the hall, on both levels. There are outdoor grilling/dining areas in the gardens.


Both houses are furnished with vintage style furniture. The left house (above) feels more like actual antiques, while the right house (below) seems more like reproductions - to my way of thinking.


I have included various skill-building items, where I could fit them in. Both houses have: a dart board, chess table, bookcase, toybox, and TV with gaming system. The Right-Side house also has a piano. Every bedroom has either a closet or a dresser/armoire for clothes storage.


Please enjoy touring the rest of the houses by scrolling through the above pictures.

These houses are part of a mini-series I am doing of British Houses. I hope you will enjoy them all . Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

Both houses are fully furnished, and lightly decorated. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included, as are fire alarms and front door burglar alarms.

This is a clean copy of this house/lot; no sim has ever lived here. The package has been cleaned with Mootilda's Clean Installer.

There is parking for one vehicle on each of the driveways. The Left House driveway is in the front courtyard, and the Right House driveway is in the back garden. Cars will teleport to the road. AND, I highly recommend invisifying the driveway with Sophie-David's Invisible Driveway.

This is a pet-friendly build. No pet items are included - but there is plenty of space to add them.

Possibly used but NOT included - so, you may need to GO get it:
--- I use the Lifestyle Build Bundle wallpapers/floors ALL the time. (If you followed that link, it's the second link in the top post - extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY) This 'bundle' lives back in my Bins folder so it doesn't have the CC star. If you ever enter one of my builds and find it has blank/unpapered walls/floors, it is because I used ones from this bundle and forgot to mention it. So, either substitute the wall/floor of your choice, or go get this bundle and re-install the lot (from your lot bin.)


There is No Custom Content Included.

BUT will need to get:
Unlevel Wall - #90 by Numenor @ MTS2
Some people weren't sure how to install this wall... Click the info button below to see how I did it
NOTE: If you decide NOT to use Numenor's Wall #90, the CFE'd walls under the front swoopy-roof bits might be broken.

Lot Sizes: (Both Houses) Lot-Adjusted 30X10
Lot Prices: (Left House) $81,632 - (Right House) $77,368


Thank you, Mootilda for the awesome Grid Adjuster and Lot Adjuster tools - both were used to make this lot.

Standard mods I use that are not necessary, nor included - but were probably used whilst building/photo-ing/prepping this house for upload...
I use Deastrumquodvicis' Roof Shader for brighter roofs
And, HW/Honeywell's A Little Greyer: Roof Trim Defaults
Maranatah's White Wall Top texture replacement
Moo's Turn On/Off Lights
Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix
BeosBoxBoy's no-red-pause-mod
Nopke's Go Under Spiral Stairs mod for proper spiral stair usage
Gunmod's Radience Lighting System, which is installed with the Scriptorium (which is necessary for installing CC stairs.)
HugeLunatic's Sweet Down Low Tweaked + for the ability to shift things up/down on a wall without darkening the item!
And, I highly recommend using gummilutt's Invisible Medicine Cabinet to add features to any mirror.
And, of course, everyone needs Numenor's CEP and SEP!

NOTE: Sweet Down Low Tweaked + sometimes causes pictures, curtains, shelves, and ceiling lights to 'jump' out of place when you first install a lot. You can click the item to put it back in place. The 'jumping' is a side-effect of the mod. It won't affect your game at all (other than the inconvenience of things being initially out of place *sigh*)
