I saw an article on Yahoo about a haunted mansion being sold for $160k and could not resist to take a closer look. Apparently the mansion in question is the Scutt Mansion in Joliet, Illinois. It was the former home of the creator of barbed wire and is said to be haunted. The article could not have come at a better time, as the new venue in The Sims 3 store included the exact mansard roof sections needed to re-create this dignified Second Empire home.
As I worked to duplicate the home, I had a decision to make: a dilapidated worn and decidedly haunted mansion or a lovely representation of what the mansion could be, were someone to purchase and renovate it?
I decided that....being as far away from Halloween as it is....I was not in the mood for haunted and worn. So my simself promptly purchased the mansion, moved it to Sunset Valley and renovated it from top to bottom.
This Second Empire Victorian includes:
5 bedrooms (2 ensuite)
large formal dining room
roof top play area
large patio and gardens
small kitchen garden
40x40 lot size
A handful of store items including those roof sections
