The Singleton brothers are self-made millionaires, striking it rich by cashing in on the tech sector just before the dot com bubble burst. With lots of money and lots of free time, they decided toc head west - Midwest that is. They haven't exactly had a lot of success raising horses (but what city slicker does?), but they figure if they keep throwing enough money at it something will eventually click.

One small slip of the scalpel and a medical malpractice lawsuit later though, Gavin found himself desperate for a change of scenery. Being the town doctor in Appaloosa isn't quite the fast paced high pressure life he was used to, but perhaps the countryside has other charms to offer. For the time being though, he plans to lay low and hope his tarnished reputation doesn't catch up to him.

Parrott Family

Family info Lot info

Having moved to the mainland from Hawaii a few years back, the Parrott family seems like an exotic bunch to the country locals. Their troubles are effectively masked by their neighbors believing their mannerisms stem from cultural differences.

Jazlyn however appears to have become meek and downtrodden over the years; can she find the strength to take back her life and come into her own?

Kenji is the junior archeologist who can't wait to get a closer look at the dinosaur dig on the edge of town. The one thing they all share is a love of animals, but the landlord has a very firm policy of no fur allowed. Until they can change his mind, it looks like they're stuck with a feathered friend?

  • Family: Benjamin and Ralston the Dog

Pinto Palazzo

As outside pressure increased, Tate and Esme became introverted and guarded, building walls to keep unwanted visitors out.

Curley Copse

206 West Appaloosa Avenue


Homesteaded many years ago by the ancestor of the current residents, this was once the finest house in town. Of course it was also the only house in town. Downsides include a somewhat distressed building, and the land it sits on is significantly diminished in acreage from its original size. However, if you can resist political pressure to rezone for commercial construction, and you don't mind the bustling downtown noise, you'll have quite the hot property for quick access to everything the town has to offer.

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Family Funds: §1000
  • Family: Alouette, Oriole and Minette the Cat

Blackburn Family

Family info Lot info

If you ask Vera Blackburn about dog obedience she'll bluntly tell you, "There's no such thing as a bad dog, merely a bad owner." It's hard to argue with her approach when you find yourself cut off mid-sentence with a snap of her fingers and a fire in her eyes. The years haven't been kind to her complexion - some say the wrinkles were sealed in place from her harsh demeanor and ever present frown. Those who get to know her though will discover the love she has for her canine companions, and may pick up some useful tricks to use on their own pets along the way.

  • Difficulty: Medium
  • Family Funds: §1400
  • Family: Vera with Ginger and Walter the Dogs

Cave Canem

Chandra Family

Family info Lot info

Vallari is living the good life, unfettered by the rigors of such things as "responsibility", "basic decency", and "fiscal responsibility" - all those topics her mom used to nag her about.

She thinks of her day job at the spa as simply a means to meet a wealthy and handsome client - preferably single.

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Family Funds: §13000

Pergola House

72 Rachelle Lane

  • 30 x 30 lot size

Lionheart Family

Family info Lot info

The townsfolk give Ms. Lionheart a wide berth should they see her approaching. Not that there's a problem with her that anyone can pinpoint per se, but she is a little... shall we say... eccentric. With her colorful leopard print hat and garish feline apron, the local teens have dubbed her "Old Kitty", a name she'd no doubt give them a good drubbing for should it ever be said to her face. As the last remaining member of her family, she lives out her days with her four cats, and that's just the way she likes things.

  • Difficulty: Hard
  • Family Funds: §488
  • Family: Hetty with her Cats: Maria, Mothball, Pickles and Muffin

Bedlington Family

Family info Lot info

The Bedlingtons are just the sort of new money the residents of Appaloosa Plains frown upon, having come to live in the country with no real respect for the land. Bertram is rarely seen out of his tweed button down vest, with Buckley close at his heels. Along with his wife Patricia, they love the beautiful outdoor vistas found along the river's edge, but as they enter the twilight of their lives they care little for any manner of preservation. Were their eyesight better they may notice the angry glares of neighbors as they zip down the driveway in their gas guzzler, even if it's doubtful they'd give someone else's considerations a second thought.

  • Family Funds: §15000
  • Family: Bertram, Patricia and Buckley the Dog

  • Difficulty: Hard
  • Family Funds: §1700
  • Family: Shawnee, Cheyenne, Dakota with 2 horses, Willow and Bramble and Shep the Dog.

Little River House

37 Eucalyptus Drive

Miller Family

Family info Lot info

The Millers are one of the most well-liked families in all of Appaloosa. They've built a reputation as trustworthy humanitarians with their strong family values and unending generosity.

As Quincy and Jacquie keep a watchful eye over their young neighbors, will the seemingly innocent Maisy take her own special interest in Calvin Riffin?

  • Difficulty: Hard
  • Family Funds: §4000
  • Family: Quincy, Jacquie and Maisy Miller with Patch the Dog and Mozart the Cat

Super Suburban

1011 Pomona Promenade


When you really want to leave the city behind, this suburban style house will make you think there must be shopping malls and fast food chains nearby... it's just a bit too oout in the country for that though.

  • 40 x 40 lot size

Riffin Family
