This is my remodel of SimGuru Hydra's cottage, I call my version Underhill Farm.
"Underhill" is a term for a place of the fairies, a place that lies alongside our world and may touch it in places. Supposedly the fey can cross into our world and may lure humans into Underhill through portals like fairy rings or enchanted mirrors.
Among the ammenities of Underhill Farm:
1. All appliances upgraded. This was especially challenging as the Fey are not good with cold iron, but as it happens Lillianna Stormbringer (my tester Sim for this build) is one of the rare "iron kissed" and able to work man-made metal.
2. Fully stocked nectary cellar. Try exotic vintages like Stormbringer's Summer Days or Blue Moon.
3. Fully stocked pond for fishing AND swimming. There are two fish spawners for lake fish, but there are other fish stocked in this lovely pond as well.
4. Small barn with one stall. Suitable to house the family horse or unicorn.
5. Fully decorated and detailed rooms with a great deal of Sim-painted art and cut gemstones and captive insects as part of the decor.
6. Two bedrooms, each with it's own private bath and unique ammenities such as private balconies.
7. In addition to the private family bathrooms, the cottage boasts a third bath for guests on the main floor.
8. The bookcases in the home contain most skill books, recipes, and musical compositions. 9. There is a lavish garden with harvestibles of the common and the magical. 10. There are chests at various points on the lot. Here's a hint: OPEN THEM!
I hope everyone enjoys Underhill Farm because I had such fun making it! I kept some of the first floor's shape, the bathroom, and the floor pattern. I also kept (and added to) some of the stone walkways and wildflower sprays that were already present on the property.
