After checking with the bank and getting an assessment of the items in their current home, Chase and Candy decided today was the day to move into the new digs. The $230K (and change) home is now in Chase and Candy’s hands.
And now a word from our author:
Before we get into the pictures of the new digs, let me explain my inspiration. I am a huge Frank Sinatra fan. So I wanted to capture some of the charm from the house Sinatra had built in 1947 in Palm Springs, California. The estate, which is still in use as a rental for events, was originally planned to be a big, Georgian mansion with columns and red brick, but the architect that Sinatra went to thought that wouldn’t look right in the area, so he drew up a plan of a large, single-floor mansion, essentially, built in that mid-Century fashion. The estate is known as “Twin Palms” due to the fact that the land had two palm trees on it when Sinatra purchased it. In order to build his pool, Sinatra bought lot beside it.
I have attempted to, as much as I can in The Sims 4, recreate the basic look of the house. I have a YouTube video giving an overview of the real life house. I am not a great builder, so if it doesn’t look quite right, I do apologize. That being said, I do like how it turned out. As you can tell, I suck at landscaping! LOL
Or, if you don’t want to watch a video, you can see an overhead view of the RL house. It’s on the left with the orange map pin
And now… my version of it… to the best of my ability
And now some shots of the interior. In order: kitchen, bar, coffee nook, side entrance/woodworking room, formal dining room, living room (three images), and, view of the pool.
I’m certain the Stoddard Family will enjoy this home for as long as they live.
