5 Sim Lane
|5 Sim Lane|
|Number of floors||2|
The lot contains a small two-story house with a graveyard in the back. On the first floor is a small master bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and a small living area. The bathroom contains a Sani-Queen Bathtub, and is accessed through the kitchen. The living area contains a loveseat, a bookshelf, an aquarium, and a piano. There is a "porch" in front, and a patio in the back. There is a large dining table on the patio. The top floor only covers part of the first floor, and has one room with a dollhouse, a toybox, an easel and a bed for Cassandra.
The lot features a graveyard with eight gravestones. Each gravestone is associated with a ghost, who will often appear at night to haunt the lot and house. The ghosts are named Grandpa, Grandma, Uncle, Auntie, Cousin, Vegas, Bratty, and Boy.
The house remained mostly consistent across different international versions. Gravestone types vary from different locales. Road markings were removed from the Asian and European versions.
In The Sims 2 (which is set 25 years after The Sims), the Goths live in a different house and a different neighborhood. Mortimer's memories from The Sims 2 show red Fire! and "Burned food" icons; some players theorize that these memories indicate that Mortimer burned down the original Goth house.
Parts of the house at 5 Sim Lane were apparently rebuilt in The Sims 2 for the purpose of taking family-story pictures. Two of these are in the Goth family's album, and can be seen in the gallery below.
