Designer Homes


There is no place like home for the holidays, and we have two brand-new homes for you. Briny Heights now has McCrabkin Suburban Home and Cordelia’s Corner Café, making it the perfect winter destination.


McCrabkin Suburban Home is the ideal holiday home that your Sims deserve because families that celebrate together stay together! Walk right in the grand colonial-themed building for a warm and cozy feel accentuated by the decorated Christmas tree, grand staircase, flaming fireplace, and more. With multiple rooms, your grown-up Sims can relax together while their children play! There is also an adorable outdoor seating area in the garden where the family can sit back and relax. Get this home at Tier 45 from the Festival Pass of Sim Festival for the perfect family holiday experience! 


We also have Cordelia’s Corner Cafe! While The McCrabkin Suburban Home is ideal for celebrating with relatives, let your Sims return to their home-cafe and enjoy with friends and townsfolk while serving coffee! With a bedroom apartment on the floor above and umbrella-covered seating outside, this house is the ideal party destination and a dream come true!
