The Riviera Estate at The Grove Country Club

These 11 pictures are from the “The Riviera Estate at The Grove Country Club” build located on the “Riviera Drive” sim.  The land description reads, “Welcome to The Riviera Estate, one of The Grove Country Club’s most beautiful, elaborate private estates.  Encompassing a full sim, construction on Riviera began in May of 2015, and is now finally open to the public.”

Brick and Sammie Haworth-Masters have done an exceptional job in creating this exquisitely elegant build.  When you land, you are greeted with classical music streaming through your speakers and, upon entering the gates, find a horse-drawn carriage that takes you to the main estate.  I was fortunate enough to be invited to an event on this sim and the gala was just as impressive as the atmosphere that has been created here.  Just a beautiful build.  Be sure and check it out as they have graciously opened it to the public.

I hope you enjoy the pictures and, as always, the SLURL is located at the bottom of this post.

Arranmore

These 6 shots are from the Arranmore build on the Aridia sim.  This is an amazing sim with a very interesting backstory (which is presented to you in the helpful notecard you are offered upon landing and reposted as follows:)

“The island of Arranmore, is today, a sleepy, almost deserted island, but was once a thriving community, small, but very active. The fishing port was the main source of income for the islanders, but they also relied heavily upon the investment from Lord & Lady Inman, who were the owners of the large manor house in the centre of the island. Many years ago, Lord & Lady Inman, along with their 2 children, took a holiday, and seemed to vanish off the face of the earth. To this day, no-one knows why, or what happened to them. This was a heavy blow to the community, who relied on Lord Inman’s investments, and slowly, over the years, Arranmore fell into decline. Today, it has a handful of die hard residents who remain, but little is seen of them. Strange things began to happen on the island, which seemed to drive many people away. So, here we are today, still a beautiful and scenic island, but with few inhabitants. A manor house, that has not been lived in for years, and what seems like a dark, eerie cloud, hanging over the island……”

Byrd Island

These 11 shots are from the “Byrd Island” build created by LICK Sim Design located on the Oyster Bay sim.  Sera Bellic has created another incredible build and, as usual, it does not disappoint.   The story goes, “Welcome to Byrd Island. Take a step back in time to explore this once inhabited island. The Light house keeper and his family abruptly left the island never to return. Could it have been the birds, or something else? Byrd Island is now open for tours. Check the schedule for the next ferry from the mainland.”  Outstanding!!!

Lost Dream

These 11 shots are from the “Lost Dream-Les reves perdus” build located on the “Wonderous Love” sim.  The land description reads, “Lost Dream, original world of dreams and creativity, with the atmosphere of nature and soothing and rejuvenating, discover and rejoice in his wonderful, Explore, stay awhile, and do not forget to bring your camera…tag photographe…..rezz poses..3ans..”

To describe this build as anything less than delightful would be akin to deceiving you and we all know nobody likes to be deceived.  Trust me when I tell you this sim is definitely worth a visit.  There are quite a few photogenic areas so be sure to snap your pictures, create a memory, and enjoy yourself.  I know I did all three.

I hope you like the pictures and I have included the SLURL at the bottom of this post.
