BeauRoche


Castle 027

Today I am featuring this mixture of cottage and castle known as the BeauRoche by M&M Creations, designer and creator of sculpted prims and mesh. The cottage/castle was inspired by a late medieval cottage found in rural France. It sits atop a small rocky rise that gives it a grandeur presence.

Basement

It’s highly detailed in both the mesh and textures utilized and to give a touch of realism the exterior texture has put-log holes to convey the age of the building.  All of the doors, gates and windows are scripted to open and close with original new sounds and the fountain seen in the first picture is scripted with running water that can be turned on and off.

First Floor

The balcony in the last photo could also be used as an entrance as the railing leading out from the house can be swapped out for a gate.  There is arch way in the courtyard/garden.

Second Floor

Each purchase includes a copy/modifiable version of high and low LOD build, and a template for the nameplate and also the shade maps.   The high has a land impact of 95 with the low at 56 with a footprint of 31×28.5 meter.

It’s a well done building that is great for medieval role-play enthusiasts. Go check out other builds by this creator at their main store

The leaning tree in the first picture is not part of the building.  It’s the newest tree by Little Branch called the Honey Tree, available now at the newest round of Lost & Found. The flowers also show in the first picture are by Little Branch as well and currently at FaMESHed.

  2. What a great building for only 56 LI, and even the high detail version is impact is pretty good. It’s so nice to see that a real life historical building inspired this castle/cottage back in Second Life! My brother lives in rural France and there are many of these old buildings scattered around, they are often rebuilt into barns and workshops.

  3. It’s a little stark for me. I’m the romantist. Tom always wanted to rebuild a loft in inner DC during the time we lived there for his art studio and we would live there also but I simply couldn’t wrap my mind around it. We had to come to a mutual agreement. He got his studio seperate from the house! And, that gave me the opportunity to have all the flowering vines and birdbaths, etc all around. Tom could hear the Potomic River passing by and when he wanted solice or inspiration, he only had to step outside his studio door.

    1. I would love the inside of this to be more modern, but I absolutely love the outside.. and imagine it with vines with coloring blooms running up along side of it.. with a small lake somewhere near. )

      1. Give me the pacific ocean with crashing waves against the boulders and wildlife everywhere. Orchids bloom wild as do many roses and various flowering vines. It took very little effort on my part do you have something blooming outside the windows year round. And we updated the inside to have modern conveniences we considered necessary but were able to hide them and keep them within the Romantic fame

      2. Yes, on my trip to Europe and visiting some castles it was lovely to see how modernization happens in century old buildings. I wish that I had the memory recollection you do Sheri!
