The “Owen Maybeck house” began as a contest entry on the The Sims 3 forums.  It is a craftsman style house based on a publicly available floorplan that I found online.

Sketch of what became the Owen Maybeck

At JDCSims, we aren’t afraid to try anything, but the craftsman style, until now, simply wasn’t in our repertoire.  That has changed.
I named this the “Owen Maybeck” house after California architects Bernard Maybeck and  David Owen Dryden, out of San Francisco and San Diego respectively.  It essentially has two wings and boasts 2 bedrooms with a Jack & Jill bathroom, a laundry room, and a two-car garage (with workbench) on one side, an office and master suite complete with two walk-in closets on the other.  Through the core of the house, you’ll find the dining room, kitchen, and large open living room.

Off this large room is an proportionally large deck with a full outdoor kitchen.  The backyard boasts a raised hot tub and lounge area on one side, a pool on the other.

Even the side yards are decked out!  On one side, a gorgeous pond stocked with kissing gourami and small koi; on the other, a fruit tree arbor features every fruit-producing tree in the game up to Pets.

The whole thing comes in at a tidy §188, 668.

Because this is a The Sims 3 contest, there is zero CC in this house. You can download it on MediaFire. (I couldn’t get it to upload on The Exchange, which honestly suits me fine.  Note that the house weighs in at 8.82Megs.)
