Open House: The Felicity

This is the cottage I built for Felicity.  If she wins the heir poll, anyone who doesn’t move to their own place will move to this lot with her, along with the family ghosts.

I’ve never built a house with an entry like this one; it was sort of a challenge to work out the roofing.  If the whole family moves here, a small carriage house, greenhouse, and graveyard will probably be added.

Felicity’s Place is shown here (and is on the Gallery, link here) on the 64  x 64 Dresden House lot in the countryside of Windenburg, which is where I plan for her to live.   I picked this lot because it has a waterfall, stream, and fishing pond behind it which is very scenic.  (And it doesn’t have a bonfire pit nearby to constantly spam my sims’ whims!)  However, this house and gardens will fit on a much smaller lot.

Going around the side to the right (kitchen and upstairs, writing nook)

And now, into the house!

The interior:

Entryway, with stairs to the right and a tiny library to the left.  Straight ahead, the living area.

It’s a really tiny library

I will decorate the living area after I find out how many family members will be living here

But Felicity’s already got plenty of books!  There is a small bathroom at the foot of the stairs.

The eat-in kitchen has very few modern fixtures.

The back door leads to the patio and natural pool outside

At the top of the stairs, to the right, is a reading and writing nook

The upstairs also includes a hall bathroom, and a master bed and bath.

    It’s very cute. I like the townhouse looking one as well. I think the color scheme on both are good.

    Wow, this is so lovely! I’m really impressed with the job you did on that roof too – I’m awful at roofs! Mine are always very plain.

    Gorgeous!!! This house is what nudged Felicity ahead in my vote, I was very torn between her and Fearghus. I adore Fiona too. So many great heir possibilities! The roofline on this house is really pretty, and I like the layout quite a bit too. I can understand with the colors, which I think are great, but it can be hard to adjust when we try to do something differently. I think the rosey colored writing area really fits the garden/yard on this house, and the kitchen area is really welcoming too.

    • It makes me so happy the house was a factor in your vote. I’m glad you like all the heir possibilities, though. Overall, I am really happy with the layout. I would have liked to have used the little nook over the entry in the bathroom but I couldn’t get the roof to stop showing through the room. There’s a custom room tool and usually when you draw a custom room, it blocks out all the roof that would be cutting through, but it didn’t work here for some reason. That bit of wasted space bugs me, but I guess it is like crawl space :-). The proportions of rooms in this house reminds me of old houses I’ve been in; modern ones tend to have much more standardized spaces, but this one has the big rambling kitchen and the huge upstairs bath, as well as the tiny study. I didn’t think about the writing space being rosey fitting with the garden, thanks.
