Retreat! Where to find a little ME time! Absolutely well hidden, but oh, what a gem! This garden was made especially for Ti, a man in desperate need of a place to find some peace of mind and to escape the city. That's why I named it Ti's Secret Garden. The lush, overgrown grounds with the small cottage is just what you need to unwind and get earthed again. The interior is basic, it is about the garden and the landscaping. The basement can be turned into a second bedroom if you like.

There is a lawnmower provided, but I can't see where you would use it except on the little one-hole golf course ....

The lot was built on a 60x60 existing park lot in Twinbrook. You will need to bulldoze the Amphitheater and change the lot to residential. It will best fit there. Of course you can try to place the Secret Garden on a 64x64 lot anywhere else. You might have to adjust the edges since the lot is well hidden from street level. I left out Generations, Supernatural and Into the Future Extension Packs. No stuff packs were used and no Store items.

For the garden I used some of SuzaSimplyStyling plants, like the potted ivy, Hibiscus and the Hollyhock. SimplyStyling is no longer available unfortunately. The golf flagpole is by Sandy at http://aroundthesims3.com/objects/function_entertainment_sport_01.shtml. The climbing flowers are by Visty6, here: http://visty-6.blogspot.nl/2013/03/color-roses.html

One of my favorite homes in my game. I have it on a hilltop in Twinwood overlooking the lake. I did "tweak" it a little since I have a mother and daughter living in it with their many dogs and cats. Thank for all of the beautiful homes you create. Am always anticipating the next one...LOL Huggs \:wub\: Robin
