Another scary, over-the-top Gothic Victorian Revival from QubeDesign. Two bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, dark and creepy everything. No spider webs! But if you're not afraid, this really is a charming little home your Sim will be happy in for years to come.
So many features make this lot truly special - herringbone hardwood floors, dark paneled rooms, wonderful details (such as the mullioned windows and the beamed ceilings), and a compact floor plan ideal for a single, couple or small family offering room to grow. Eventually the attic could become a wonderful master suite, and the partially developed basement offers room for a pool table, gym, hot-tub room, or small in-law apartment.
The main floor offers a lovely entranceway with grand staircase, with a quiet library to the left, and a cozy living room with fireplace to the right. Adjacent to the living room is a formal dining room and a large family kitchen (with breakfast solarium, laundry room and half-bath) spans the rear of the house. Basement stairs leads to three large rooms, two having french doors out to the lap pool. Stepped windows follow the staircase to the second floor, where you are greeted by a cozy reading nook and grand hallway just waiting for all the family portraits. There is also a large family bathroom, two bedrooms (the master bedroom has a private door to the bathroom), and another staircase leads to the full-height attic with whimsical lookouts and space to reconfigure to your future needs. The 30 x 30 lot is small enough to fit into any world while still offering a lushly landscaped garden (with wishing well), multiple terraces, lap pool and detached garage at the end of the lane.
As with all QubeDesign lots, you are welcomed to renovate, build onto, place upon larger lots, decorate to your ideal personal taste, and have as much fun as possible with. I always aim to give you the best possible architectural detail in the smallest file-size possible, all I ask is that you do not re-upload and claim as your own.
