The Sims Freeplay- House Guide (Part Two)

There are lots of premade houses to buy on 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 you build
In this part I will be covering the following houses, click the links below to head straight to that part of this post:

s= can be built on a standard plot
p= can be built on a premium plot

Standard or Premium?

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

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

NOTE: Some of the houses may have been slightly modified

Japanese Retreat- 3/5

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

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 LP I think it is definitely worth it because most of the items in this house cost LP so it would cost you a lot more if you were to buy them separately. But I would have liked to have seen more from this house, it’s 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 35LP, Premium 40LP
Floors: One
Car: No
Premium Residence: Trees

Neo Tokyo- 4/5

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

I was disappointed with this house seeing as it costs LP 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 18LP, Premium 28LP
Floors: One
Car: No
Premium Residence: Trees

Sim Cinema- 2/5

This is a small 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 LP for this building!


Cost: Standard 20LP, Premium 27LP
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, it’s 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.

Cost: Simoleons, depends on how many other houses you have built so far
Floors: One
Car: No
Premium Residence: Garden decorations

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, it’s a good sized house, perfect for a family. It can only be built on a premium residence 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

Seeing as this house costs hundreds of SP I was really expecting more from it, I thought it would be at least a 2 story house but it’s only one, however 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 250SP, I think 50-100SP would be a better price, but I would pay more if it had a second floor.

Cost: Standard 225SP, Premium 250SP
Floors: One
Car: No
Premium Residence: Comes with a long narrow pool with nice paving. A few long chairs and trees.

Teen Mansion- 4.5/5

To build the teen mansion you firstly need to complete the sim sign to level 3 and your first one is free, this house can only be built 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.

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

Cost: First is free then it cost simoleons, depends on how many other houses you have built so far
Floors: Three
Car: Yes, Luxury (3 Star Car)

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

  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?
