Eaglewood Run

I've just completed a new small lot for Sims3, Eaglewood Run.  This beautiful home is sophisticatedly styled with many traditional details, yet is still fresh and modern. This 3 bedroom, 4.5 bath pool home is on a small 30 x 30 lot, and is constructed and decorated to the high standards of Qube Design.

While looking stately and elegant from the curb, this home features an innovative plan with a fully developed basement with garage, home theater, gym and laundry room. Essentially two wings separated from a large foyer and hall space by two glass 'light bridges', this home is perfect for a young, growing SIM family that will still offer the busy parents a quiet, peaceful retreat. For the design thesis, I thought about how this young family might live and chose classic, timeless pieces, and utilized a compound colour scheme to compliment the abundant use of natural oak through out. Large, graphic patterns in muted colours make a bold, modern statement yet provide a high level of quiet elegance and serenity. In dealing with a smaller space I've also utilized many mirrored walls, ideal for visually expanding the space and reflecting light around the rooms. Upon entering, you are greeted with a large oak-panelled foyer, opening to a large hallway with oak staircases and a 3 storey wall of glass overlooking the pool and garden (definitely NOT what you were expecting from the large stone front porch). To the right, across one of the light bridges, is a large family kitchen, breakfast nook, powder room and formal dining room. The kitchen features a funky, fresh approach to the usual boring kitchen cupboards, and there are wonderful French doors out to the terrace which overlooks the pool. To the left of the foyer is a beautifully styled living room and a warm, cozy den. Why not curl up that chair and read a good book? Downstairs to the basement, you will notice that the rear of the house features a full walk-out basement that opens to the sparkling pool. The long corridor has been stripped of decor colour in order to serve as a spectacular art gallery. At one end lies a large, sound-proof media room with marble fireplace and spectacular gold-leaf painting (thanks to Xerenity at simnational.com), and at the other end is a home gym with ensuite, which could be converted to another bedroom or study. There is also a full laundry room with washer and dryer (thanks to Melcaramel at www.toolregame.com), and an enclosed garage. Upstairs, this home has been smartly designed with a 'children's wing', featuring two bedrooms with attached ensuites, and a separate (and quiet!) 'parent's retreat wing', featuring an elegant bedroom with marble fireplace, and a sumptuous marble bath designed to spoil you. Why go the spa? Sit in your large tub and enjoy your beautiful garden. Another innovative design feature on the upper floor is the twin study alcoves in the upstairs hallway - ideal for completing homework while under the watchful eyes of the parents. Special thanks to www.simsartgallery.net for their amazing picture mods, and www.stylistsims.net and mangosims2.free.fr for their new beautiful furniture collections. Also, great thanks to the inspiring game mods available at www.modthesims.com, especially Lemoncandy for the plant recolourings and Srikandi for the mods available in build-mode, and the FreshPrince for the beautiful new Lexus IS F (I love this car!!!! but don't worry, there's still room in the garage for a Prius). More thanks to 'SimsLulamai' for the custom bath fittings and new curtain meshes. Finally, thanks to all the brilliant content artists here at TSR. Specifically Shino&KCR and Angelamveliza for their beautiful bath fixtures, Mutske for his plants, Pilar for his spectacular mirror and classic dining chair (my favourite design pieces). All the artists here at TSR are amazing! Please enjoy this beautiful home from Qube Design. Available Oct 30th.
