Monticello was the Virginian plantation home of Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States of America. The neoclassical villa was designed by Jefferson himself and has become a defining point in the early architecture of the new nation.

But this is not that. Heavily inspired by, oh yes. Not at all a recreation, but like in many ways. Monticelloesque, if you will.

As with most of my builds, I'm inspired by something (the patio wings that extend to either side and back), and I start to play around and "see where it goes".

Monticelloesque has three bedrooms in the main building and one in the guest house of the left wing. There are five and a half bathrooms scattered throughout. A dining room, parlor, and office round out the main section, and there is a studio at the end of the right wing. Though I strove for a simpler, more user friendly design, I still retained the kitchen in the basement. The basement also has many empty rooms for players to use as they see fit, and a garage is nestled into the basement of the right wing. Outside there is a pool and a pond on the landscaped lot.

World Adventures and Ambitions were used extensively. Showtime provides the arches on the side porches and wings. Island Paradise was used for the backdoor, garage door, and columns.

CFE was used used throughout. Use caution when modifying, though the basement and ground floor layouts could be adjusted without much hassle.

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.
