The Gatzbee Mansion: A Vintage Glamour NoCC Build

Return to the glamorous days of yesteryear with this mansion set on the cliff-side overlooking Windenburg Harbor.  The notorious Jay Gatzbee looks forward to your visit at one of his lavish parties. No invitation is ever necessary.

This NoCC build highlights the Vintage Glamour Stuff Pack. The mansion features 6 bedroom suites for guests, 7 Bathrooms, a Master Suite, and a bulters quarters.  The interior also includes a grand formal dining room, library, lounge, gaming room, spa, music room, private screening theater, commercial kitchen, greenhouse, and a whole lot more.  Or perhaps you’d like to wander the gardens, spend time on the gazebo, have a picnic on the great lawn, or just lounge poolside. It’s really all up to you. (click on pictures for hi-res version)

You can find this NoCC build in my SimDoughnut Gallery. Just search using the hashtags #gatsby #vintageglamour, or #mansion. I hope you enjoy the build as much as I did creating it.

Have fun :)!

Her dress is by Edith Head

There was a time in Stanwyck’s career, say 1939 - 1945, when Paramount made her up to be a glamorous movie star, a rather different figure from her earlier tough girl roles (though some of those glamorous roles - The Lady Eve, Christmas in Connecticut, Double Indemnity - are among my favorite). But with her move to Warner Brothers, a more working class and grittier studio than the other majors, she became once again an independent and capable woman, in charge of her life and able to meet the challenges that came her way.

Remembering Marlene Dietrich on her birthday (27 December 1901 - 6 May 1992)

“Being in the depths of sadness is just as important an experience as being exuberantly happy… I do not think we have a “right” to happiness. If happiness happens, say thanks.”
