The Bel Aire Mansion

You know your sims have made it when they can afford to move into a home like this one. Either that or you just hit Motherlode 4 or 5 times! The Bel Aire has everything a large, successful sim family could desire including:

6 bedrooms
6 baths
formal dining
art studio
home gym
kids playground

50x50 lot

Find it the Sims 4 Gallery under my Origin user name: ruthless_kk


  1. Very beautiful, elegant house. Great job!

  2. I love this house! I love that Weezer song btw, but when I saw the name my mind instantly started singing that Will Smith song... yea, you know it, "In West Philadelphia born and raised, on the playground is where I spent most of my days..." :P

    But more seriously, absolutely stunning!

  3. Ruth dear how do you get your Gallery pictures to take so good!! I would love some tips!! Me and a wonderful friend are struggling with them just showing the roof part when we go to upload it to the gallery?? Any help would be much appreciated dear!!

  4. Bree...I have found that it depends on 1) how many stories the house is (2 or 1 stories show better because 3 story homes are taken from a wider angle and you lose some of the detail unless it is a huge house) 2) how close the house is to the street. Before you do the landscape, save the house to library to see what the picture is looking like. It will tell you how much of the front yard will be in the Gallery picture. You might need to move the whole thing back a few squares to be able to see everything in the final picture. 3) which lot you use. Some of the lots are located with trees or other things that cut into the picture. Very frustrating. Once again, I suggest that once you have the basic shape of the house fleshed out, you save to library to see what the picture looks like. If there is a big tree blocking half the house, you probably want to move it to a different lot.
    As far as roofs not showing...I am not sure about that part. Can you give me more details?

  6. What did you use for your bricks outside the house? Is it a mod? If so, can you send me the link? Thanks!
