Hi everyone! Let me preface this by saying this is my first upload, so if I have made any mistakes, that's why.

Let's get down to it: this is a remake of the Grand Estate. I can't remember which expansion pack it came with, but I want to say Bon Voyage [edit: it came with Apartment Life!]. I opened the house and thought... Woah, Maxis, what is this? So I remade it. Hopefully you all like it.


Before and After

This house was just a mess. The roof was too big; the windows were completely unaligned; the front was all boring and flat, and the whole thing looked top heavy. In my remake, I kept some of the original green shuttered windows and the grey stone. I tried to make the aesthetic like how I think a house called "the grand estate" would look.

The Grand Estate was listed as having 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The Grand Estate 2.0 has 3 bedrooms, an office that could be converted into a bedroom, and 2.5 bathrooms.


Before

The rooms before had no discernable style, and I thought the colors clashed horribly. Now, it looks more like somewhere I would want my Sims to live.


After

I hope your Sims enjoy this newly renovated estate. Please inform me of any mistakes.

Notes: The rug in the living room may catch fire because it is so close to the fireplace, but a fire alarm and a sprinkler system have been installed for your Sims' safety. There is also a phone and burglar alarm included in the lot.

Lot Size: 4x4
Lot Price (furnished): 122,193

Additional Credits:
I use criquette's trees defaulted [x] CC NOT INCLUDED
I use HugeLunatic's rug mod [x] CC NOT INCLUDED
Thanks to Maxis for the inspiration
Thanks to ModTheSims for the website that I love so much

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract: Use WinRAR (Windows) or Stuffit (Mac) to extract the .sims2pack file(s) from the .rar or .zip file(s).

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.
