When Fergus' Mind
started a CFF thread for his Villa Strandheim
, I fell in love with his source material as well. With his gracious permission, I delved into making a version of my own.
Villa Litsegard is a loose exterior recreation of the Dragestil
homes of Villa Strandheim and Villa Balderslund. Those two homes are remarkably similar. The shape, with the cupola, and "boathouse" is all Strandheim, while the decorative tiles are from Balderslund. I oriented the home with the show-y facade facing away from the road, the main entrance (up a winding path) to the side, and the informal "backside" to face the street.
I went for a very homey, sorta dated interior. As the structure was taking shape, it seemed like an extremely comfortable, family-focused home, the kind of grounded family that's too busy being close-knit and involved to care that their house is filled with garish wallpapers. The home has 5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, and 2 half bathrooms. Along with the a living room, dining room, and a kitchen, the ground floor also has an office. The basement has a laundry room, one of the half baths, a cellar storage room, a room with a pool table, and an additional large room which would be great for skills and hobbies. The boats are included with the lot, the cars are not. The name, of course, is just "Dragestil" backwards.
Lot Size: 40 x 40
Games used: WA, Amb, LN, Gen, Pets, Showtime, SN, Seasons, and IP. Fast Lane, Master Suite and 70s80s90s (one chair) Stuff Packs were used as well.
No Store Content.

I used the Neutral Gray Slate Roof from QBUILDERZ's Neutral Slate Recolors
A huge thank you to Fergus' Mind!
Thank you for introducing me to this style and all your lovely creations. Sorry it took me, like, 8 billion years to get this lot finished up!
