The Sims Freeplay- Houses Guide (Part Two)

125 Comments

You can buy several different houses in the sims freeplay.  In this guide I will rate each house and give my opinion so you can see if it is worth buying!

The price and time it takes to build a house increases with every house purchased so when you get further into the game it takes a lot longer to save up for big houses and I usually get impatient waiting for it to complete building! Also a lot of houses cost LPs but are they really worth it? You will find out in this guide!

So in this post we will cover:

  • Japanese Retreat (s+p)
  • Sci Fi Shuttle (s+p)
  • Neo Tokyo (s+p)
  • Geek Heaven (s+p)
  • Sim Cinema (s+p)
  • Hallway House (s+p)
  • Two Story Mansion (p)
  • Scandinavian House (s+p)
  • Teen Mansion (p)
  • Haunted House (s+p)
  • Latin Villa (s+p)
  • DIY House (s+p)

s= can be built on a standard plot

p= can be built on a premium plot

Standard or Premium?

Once you complete the real estate quest you can build houses on premium plots which are bigger.

  • Standard= 18×18
  • Premium= 36×18

NOTE: Some of the houses have been slightly modified.

Japanese Retreat- 3/5

image

This Japanese themed house is 1 story, I don’t really like the layout of this house and the kitchen is very thin and narrow but I like the decor as almost everything matches and the garden feature is unusual.

Cost: Simoleons, depends on how many other houses you have built so far

Floors: One

Car: No

Premium Residence: garden decorations

Sci Fi Shuttle- 3.5/5
image

image

The Sci Fi Shuttle is a one story house and if you love the whole futuristic, floating chairs thing you will love this! For a property that costs LPs I think it is definitely worth it because most of the items in this house cost LPs so it would cost you a lot more if you were just to put them into a different house. But I would have liked to have seen more from this house, its a boring shape and only consists of 3 rooms so if you were to build this you might want to add a few more rooms.

Cost: Standard 35LPs, Premium 40LPs

Floors: One

Car: No

Premium Residence: Trees

Neo Tokyo- 4/5

image

image

This is the perfect 1 story house for manga/anime fans! I love the cute touches in the house such as the counters with eyes and the unusual sofa, it is definitely worth spending simoleons on this house just for some of the cool stuff that is in it! I like the unusual shape to the house but I don’t like where the front door is, I would prefer it to be coming in through the kitchen but that is my opinion.

Cost: Simoleons, depends on how many other houses you have built so far

Floors: One

Car: No

Premium Residence: Trees

Geek Heaven- 1/5
image

image

I was disappointed with this house seeing as it costs LPs I was really expecting more, all the beds are the cheap ones and some of the computers are only 1 star! It’s definitely not a heaven! I’m not really sure what the point of this house is, if you want to use a computer you might as well just buy one to put into your own house. I will at least give it one star because there is potential to turn this into a nice little 1 story house.

Cost: Standard 18LPs, Premium 28LPs

Floors: One

Car: No

Premium Residence: Trees

Sim Cinema- 2/5

image

This is a nice little 1 story cinema to get all your sims together at! It is a good size but I don’t think it needs to take up a house spot. You could turn this one into a multi screen/ floored cinema! Or you could always spend less money and just build a mini cinema into one of your houses like my one below instead of spending LPs for this building!

Cost: Standard 20LPs, Premium 27LPs

Floors: One

Car: No

Premium Residence: Trees

Hallway House- 3/5

Despite the name there is only one hallway in this house but saying that, it is a nice house for the update (making rooms smaller than 3×3) with a small bathroom and walk in wardrobes- as I am going to call them. I really like the open plan living room and kitchen too.
Not much effort has gone into the garden on the premium residence though, its just garden decorations.
I personally would either extend the house a bit and add a patio and maybe a swimming pool to make use of the space.

Two Story Mansion- 4/5

I really like this 2 story mansion, my favourite part is the open living room area that leads out to the pool, its a good sized house, perfect for a family. It can only be built on the premium residences so you have space for the pool. This house definitely feels more like a mansion, compared to the 1 story mansion! You also get a Pee Cleaner in this house (it would cost you S777,777 if you were to buy it in the store) not only does it clean up when your sims pee but it also cleans up vomit.

Cost: Simoleons, depends on how many other houses you have built so far

Floors: Two

Car: No

Note: can only be built once the multi story renovations quest has been completed

Scandinavian House- 3/5
image

image

Seeing as this house costs hundreds of SPs I was really expecting more from it, I thought it would be at least 2 storys but its only one, but saying that I really do like the whole layout and design of the house. I like the wooden style furniture that is throughout the house but I think they should have created some kitchen counters to match the wood colour from the rest of the house because it doesn’t go but that can be changed to something lighter. I don’t think it is worth the 250 SPs, I think 50-100SPs would be a better price, but I would pay more if it had a second floor.

The Scandinavian on a premium plot, comes with a long narrow pool with nice paving. A few long chairs and trees.

Cost: Standard 225SPs, Premium 250SPs

Floors: One

Car: No

Teen Mansion- 4.5/5

image

To build the teen mansion you firstly need to complete the sim sign to level 3 and your first one is free. You need to build it on a premium residence. To build the sign you need to complete the road to fame quest and if you keep doing the collection you will find the pieces you need for the sign.

This post shows you the Teen Mansion in more detail

I think this house looks great, it is three storys and has a large swimming pool in the back garden and its all gated with a fountain at the front! It is even better because the first one is free!

Cost: Simoleons, depends on how many other houses you have built so far

Floors: Three

Car: Luxury- 3 star car

Note: can only be built once the sim sign has been completed

Haunted House- 5/5

image

haunted-pool

I love this house! It is so unique and definitely worth completing the ghost hunters quest in the time limit to unlock it. You get several items that would cost you LPs in the house, lots of haunted objects so you can complete the ghost hunting hobby quicker without waiting for items to recharge.

Cost: Simoleons, depends on how many other houses you have built so far

Floors: One

Car: No

Note: can only be built if you complete the ghost hunters quest in the time limit

Premium Residence: pool

Latin Villa- 4/5

The Latin villa is unlocked if you complete the salsa dancing hobby in the time limit, I definitely think it is worth the hassle but comes with a hefty price of 175SPs (on a premium residence)- very expensive!

I really like this house, you get access to some furniture that is otherwise unavailable and a large room just for salsa dancing (you could make that smaller and add an extra bedroom if you wanted to)

Premium- 175SPs

Front- Thank you Biljana for the screenshot!

I personally think the outdoor decorations look messy and don’t go with the decor of the rest of the house, its like they couldn’t think of anything else to put there so they are just filling up the space!

Premium Garden- Thank you Biljana for the screenshot!

I really like this house but I have given it only 4 stars mainly just because of the price, it is far too expensive for what you actually get.

Cost: 175SPs

Floors: One

Car: No

Note: can only be built if you completed the salsa dancing hobby in the time limit

DIY House 3.75/5

I like this house, its mostly a good size, has a patio, balcony and basement (good if you want these but you can’t afford to build your own right now) and well worth completing the quest in the time limit for it. I don’t think much effort went into designing the premium garden though, there is a nice pool but other than that trees are just filling the space, I will be rearranging the garden to make it better. I also think the upstairs looks fairly plain and empty so redecorating is very much needed! And does anyone else think they were a bit stingy with the size of the basement- it is tiny!

Cost: First is free then they cost simoleons, depends on how many other houses you have built so far

Floors: Three, including a basement

Car: No

Note: can only be built if you complete the basement of kings quest in the time limit

Premium Residence: pool

  1. It’s unfortunate that the Latin Villa isn’t free at first like the DIY House.

  2. Hi your posts are so helpful! Do the houses on standard lots cost more on the premium lots or not? Thanks so much!

  3. Hello!🌷
    I really luv your house guide. But could u make a guide were u show us some of your houses? The one you designed yourself? Id really appreciate that as I’d love to see your town!

  4. I recently purchased the Japanese retreat for the first time and I love it but want to make some changes. I’m curious how did you change yours? Any suggestions?

  5. Hi, thanks for the helpful blog it’s really been a friend to me with this game! So one question, is it normal that when I built the Pro Skater’s Dream Pad on the mysterious island, I didn’t get the cool fence or floor? Like when you press the preview button it shows up, but once built it doesn’t. This makes me scared to build anything else there. Is it a glitch or? Very disappointed as I now wasted my LPs 😦

    • you’re welcome!
      Unfortunately for some reason that happens with some of the houses when you build them on the mysterious island, I don’t know why, sorry!

  6. Is there a way to get the latin villa wallpaper and floor if you did not complete the quest in time?
