*In snooty voice*
Join us as we tour an extravagant home owned by the wealthiest couple in Oceanside -- the manor of politician Malcolm Landgraab, X and his wife banker Vivian Moneywell Landgraab.

The left side holds the first floor fire place and the home's white grand piano. Even though no one in the Landgraab household can play, Vivian believes that every wealthy manor must have a grand piano.

Towards the rear of the room resides the pool table. The Landgraab's home is peppered with family photos and images of the island.

The Kitchen

LandgraabF01 040

Cooking is not the Landgraab's forte, however a large traditional home must have a large traditional kitchen.

The marble and nickel finish appliances mix well with Vivian's color scheme of white and cream.

The Dining Room

The screened-in porch, affectionately called the Tea Room by Mrs. Landgraab because of the many collectible tea sets located there, provides sun and warmth all year-round.

In one corner a chess table is set up for the more logical guests.

Tea bought from Oceanside's famous coffee house, The Troubadour Cafe, is served to guests as well as sumptuous cupcakes and pastries.

Tea roses in a tea tin as a table topper help to add vintage whimsy to the room.

An artist stand frames the windowed doorway which leads to Malcolm's office.

Malcolm's Office

Until a City Hall can be built and a business district is created, Malcolm uses his home office as a base of operations.

LandgraabF01 029

Above the bookshelves hangs a photo of the inhabited area of Oceanside at the time when the house was built (circa Fall, Year 1).

LandgraabF01 028

One of the items smuggled in from his days in SimCity is an image of Malcolm's ancestor, the infamous Admiral Landgraab.

The Mudroom

The mudroom is located on the side entrance near the car port. Here the residents can remove their weather-trodden outerwear before it ruins the floor. The couple's engagement photo is on display here.

Second Floor

The second floor landing incorporates more of the family's photos.

An antique vase serves as the only decor in the upper foyer.

The door leading to the master suite is framed by two large windows giving the room the appearance of a front entry.

The Master Suite

The master bedroom's fireplace mirrors the one in the downstairs living room.

The Landgraab's unique hand-carved canopy bed is the focal point of the room. Mrs. Landgraab's wedding bouquet sits atop a hand-carved chest.

Malcolm Moneywell Landgraab has his own room in the south wing. His parents couldn't decide between a nautical theme and a jungle theme so they mixed the two.

Both rooms have their own en suite bathrooms.

Wow, it's amazing, great job !
Admiral Landgraab's portrait :D

(But Viv, there's white, and then there's too much white.
The good news is, if you are ever slaughtered in there, the local Dexter Morgan will have a visually pleasant and contrasted work session.
And Sadie something to do^^)

Crime scene at the Landgraabs. Sadie would be in heaven :)

Let's hope though, that Vivian is the one slaughtered because if she came in and saw blood all over her precious upholstery SHE would be the one killing sims!
