Northumbrian set, this time for your more well-to-do sims, patricians, nobility and royalty.
To the left is the King's House of Leisure. I envisioned this one as a place that the King and his family, courtiers and such would relax and retire, but not a main residence. In medieval times the King and his court would often travel from castle to castle, mainly so that the other castles could be cleaned and maintained. People would often urinate on the floor and throw food all over the place- so these lots have courtyards that are rather grungy looking. The House of Leisure is intended to be like a vacation home where perhaps they can all enjoy some feasting and dancing. However, it is not heavily defended, so it could also be suitable for a lesser lord. Although it does have two back towers where prisoners can be kept and tortured if needed. ;)
To the right is the home for the middle class, the Northumbrian Family Home. It is large and spacious, but not too opulent or grand, yet perfect for a middle sized family. Obviously it's the smaller house of the two.
Both of these lots are only sparsely furnished, with just a few key items I included so your game is not loaded down with a lot of unwanted CC. Both of these lots use:
Big Barn Build Items and Winery Build Set from WFS, the latter was once a free download but is no longer.
Bucket Toilet by Supertramp (Free)
Medieval Stove, fireplaces by Sims Design Ave
Medieval Gate by UK1967 (Free)
Pirate Bay Walls, Column by Parsimonious (Free)
Floors and Fence by Mia86 (Free)
Stone Fireplace by HolySimoly
Catacombs Wall Torch by Beosboxboy (Free at TSR)
In addition, the family home uses:
Russian Stove by Jeka (free)
Various Maxis Recolors by Piggy (free at Piggy Sims)
All the free content can be found at MTS2, except for the catacombs wall torch and the maxis recolors. (I'm assuming you all know the links to these sites.) Let me know if you have any problems with either of these lots, or wishes for other lots I can do in this series. I'm open to requests, but I DON'T do "fairytale" castles. (I go for realism folks, realism.)
