Normandy House: 20 x 20 Lot

Created for: The Sims 3

Normandy House has a long and interesting history, and if your Sim searches very, VERY, carefully, they may find the 'rumored' hidden treasure they've always wished for. You see, Normandy House was left abandoned during the war when opposing forces occupied Champs Les Sims. The Simclaire family fled with their belongings, but rumor has it that instead of taking their large trunk full of treasure (with fears of being caught), the buried it under one of the beautiful flower bushes in their yard. However, records indicate that some of the original town ruins from the 13th century also lie buried under the gardens, and the town magistrate firmly instructed us to leave the gardens untouched. Besides, the magistrate said, the rumored treasure is just that - a rumor.

So when Qube Design first started to renovate this beautiful little house, we had very strict instructions to leave the original gardens untouched. In fact, we left the entire exterior, and most of the interior of the house as it was originally built in 1926. We did alter the main floor layout a bit to accommodate the more informal lifestyle of today's family. To the left of the main foyer there used to be a large kitchen and old butler's pantry but this area has been renovated into a beautiful kitchen and sunny breakfast room. The original 'morning room' directly in front of the main entrance has become a gracious dining room, offering beautiful views of the garden (and river, as this home was built on 200 East Northbank Blvd. in Champs Les Sims). The old, stuffy drawing room and tiny formal dining room have been opened up, and the result is an over-sized great room, with a small study nook and a sweet little music room (or formal reception room). The foyer has been enlarged to offer space for an antique mirror or painting and a lovely reception table for flowers or mail. All of the original heritage charm remains, however, as you can see, the entire house is empty and ready for your individual decorating ideas.

The main staircase takes you to the second floor, where the large master bedroom with ensuite and balcony occupy half the entire floor. There is also a den, second bedroom, and bath. Private attic stairs (which can be opened up for a more expansive feel) take you to the attic level, which has two more bedrooms, a third bath and small sewing or computer alcove. This level can also be re-configured into a second large bedroom suite if your Sims are accommodating an extended family or nanny.

But the best part of this little home is the lot size - 20 x 20. Yes, believe it or not, this elegant manor home sits in an incredibly small but exquisite garden. This allows you to place this home on pretty much any lot your Sims desire. Even placing it on a 20 x 30 lot will still allow you ample room for extended gardens, perhaps a garage, and definitely a pool. Or put it back in place in Champs Les Sims if your Sims absolutely H-A-T-E-S yard work.
