The Naples – Galland Homes

with 7 comments

This beautiful house called “The Naples” is an updated release from Galland Homes. It’s based on a luxurious Mediterranean Villa although it’s also quite typical to some of the homes you’ll find in parts of the gulf, south-west and eastern parts of Florida, US. As my mum is from Italy, I thought I’d style this house as if it were resting in the middle of the Italian countryside! The Windlight is as near to that area as I can get, it’s a brilliant light that softens towards dusk and casts a rosy glow over everything.

There are a couple of versions of Naples; one that has the clay tiled roof and a standard version with less roof detail which is 183 LI. A front walk and patio is provided as a separate piece and you can place it either way around for 2 looks. Inside, you walk through a porch or hallway to a large lounge with lots of space and windows. There’s also a den with judge’s panelling on the ground floor. Walk up a wooden flight of stairs to the main bedroom and smaller bedroom or it could be a bathroom. The side and back of the home has walk around lanais which are bordered by mesh balustrades and railings. I’ve shown the house from the front door side.

The house is textured to appear as built on a stone foundation, stucco, tile and wood floors, and neutral coloured plaster walls. This makes it versatile for a number of colour schemes. Naples is 25 metres wide and 22 metres deep and should fit on a 2048 sq metre piece of land or larger plots. If you add the patio and walkway then you need more space. Other features include a customizable security system and home control system. Permissions are Copy/Modify.

The house merits a walk around, but I just wanted to show you what could be done with some of the rooms.  Here’s the hallway or porch, the flight of wooden stairs leads to a picture window and landing. To the left of the picture you’d be entering the downstairs lounge. Note the riding boots, it’s a popular pastime to go riding!

The second bedroom has a post all to itself.  Here, I’m showing the main bedroom and balustrades, which I think is the nicest room in the house. Here’s a quiet corner, where the dog has dropped off to sleep.

This is a styling of the main bedroom where one of the doors to the balcony is propped open. Again, the dog knows the best places in the house to laze around! You can see I’ve been down The Arcade, and have been rather fortunate on the machines. I’m sure my mum would love this bedroom 🙂
