The Banyan brings elegant tropical living to the neighborhood. Set amid lush coastal foliage, the Banyan is more retreat than residence. From the crown molding and hardwood floors to the granite, quartz or marble countertops, every feature of this spacious 5 bedroom 6.5 bath home gives evidence to quality and excellence. So come home. Bask in every luxurious detail, unwind in your pool, relish the coastal breeze on your porch...your retreat awaits.


Includes on the first-floor a grandparents suite with french doors to the back porch and a large private bathroom, one kid bedroom and one teen bedroom that share a bathroom, and a study/home office with bathroom and outside access that could easily be converted to another bedroom. Also has a two-car garage with walk-through laundry room and open plan living/kitchen/dining areas.

On the second-floor there is a luxurious master en-suite with attached nursery, and an exercise room with attached bathroom that could be converted to butler's room or additional bedroom if needed.

Outside is a fenced pool, fenced kids play area, and two porches - one in front and one in back. And there is room to add a garden on either side of the house, if desired.

I have all expansion packs and stuff packs installed. I tried not to use anything from the stuff packs, and to limit items to only base game, Supernatural, Seasons, and Generations. If you don't have these three packs, then their will probably be windows, doors, furniture, and appliances that will not be as pictured. If I used anything from the other packs, then the game will substitute something else for it and it shouldn't be such a noticeable difference. There is no CC or CAP used on this lot. I have checked it with Custard.

I have play-tested the lot and didn't find any problems. If you find something, please let me know and I'll fix it.

Lot Size: 40x40
Lot Price (furnished): 215,548
Lot Price (unfurnished): 128,596

Additional Credits:
This home was inspired from the floorplan found at https://www.loganhomes.com/plans/banyan-iii

I was also inspired by (and stole ideas from) all of the wonderful lot creators for the Sims 3. They are too numerous to mention by name, but I thank them all for their amazing work! Their creations have made my game so much more enjoyable to play.

Thanks also to the wonderful people at NRaas for continuing to update their game-saving mods. Without these, I would have quit playing long ago!

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
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.
