Hey guys,

I’m coming from a different perspective on this one. I wanted to create a comfortable and charming environment where your Sims could have fun and spend more time outdoors without getting bored. I started with a big pool and then moved on to landscaping; parks, pond, fountains, paths, and driveways. Finally I fitted the structures/buildings around whatever space was left which was a bit challenging but fun.

This is a resort style, modern luxury mansion with all basic needs and a flexible architecture that responds to change. It could be used as a small, medium or large family home. It could also be used as a community lot such as a wellness center/clinic, resort/holiday hotel, etc. All structures are modifiable to suit your style; the choice is yours.

It has two main buildings; the first building in front comprises 3 small houses with different heights linked together by a bridge and functions as a unit with the stargaze tower included.

On the west side is the guest house with an open living, kitchen, and dining areas, 1 bed, full bath with private laundry, study, and 2 balconies (one has a private bar, BBQ, dining and relaxation areas). The built-in bookshelf under the stairs next to the guest house is fully functional.

The middle house is the entertainment area; it features an open plan living, kitchen, and dining areas, a half bath, 2 bars, game and multiple seating areas, study, and 2 balconies (one has a good view to the pool area and its surroundings).

The house on the east has two spacious ensuite bedrooms (one has 2 balconies) with a common laundry room, kitchen, seating areas, study, and a half bath in the shared room downstairs, and both have direct access to the stargaze tower.

The second building (back) which is actually the fourth house also has an entertainment area on the first floor with an open plan living, kitchen, and a separate dining room, study, half bath, game area, multiple seating and relaxation areas.

The master ensuite is on the second floor and features a private stairway and balcony with great view to the pool and its surroundings. It also offers a separate living room, bedroom, and dining areas, office, study, and a shared laundry room. Also on the second floor is another spacious ensuite bedroom with a balcony facing the pool.

The main library is located on the third floor; it has a large balcony with seating, relaxation areas, and a panoramic view of the lot and its surroundings.

The outdoor environment offers 2 poolside parking spaces with private driveways, a large swimming pool (ideal for parties), foot massage, poolside seating, and relaxation areas, 6 small parks for recreational activities, fish pond, outdoor shower next to the gym, artist easel, game and picnic areas. The T-shaped buildings feature 2 kitchens with BBQ, 2 poolside bars, 3 half baths, sauna, hot tub, body massage, open-air gym, fireplace, study, artist room, game area, multiple seating, relaxation, and dining areas.

I added few walls to the T-shaped buildings to preserve an open look and feel of the environment but you could add walls, windows, and/or glass roofs as needed. All breakables upgraded and burglar alarms in designated areas.

Please note: the flat screen TV in the hot tub room (T-shaped building, West) is functional but not useful; it’s just a deco to make it look nice.
As always, all floor plans, builds, pattern, and deco styles by me but you will need Late Night, Showtime, 4Sps, and store contents (deco items) to make it look exactly the same otherwise they will be replaced with standard items. Place anywhere on a flat lot.

If you encounter any issues, please comment or send me a PM.
Hope you enjoy playing it


Store Contents: the store contents are deco items (plants, pictures, furniture) which do not have any impact on the builds or function of the game and could be replaced as needed.

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
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.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

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.
