Proudspire Manor

Proudspire Manor is a three-story house that can be purchased in Solitude.

This manor is the most expensive house available for purchase in Skyrim. It is located next door to the Bards College and is near the Blue Palace. It has many amenities available for purchase, including an alchemy lab, an arcane enchanter, and cooking areas for your crafting needs. Fully upgraded, the house has 15 storage containers, 5 book cases, 5 weapon racks, 2 mannequins, and placards scattered throughout the many rooms.

Unlike most houses, this manor has more storage containers (23) before it is completely upgraded. Also, very unusually, many containers are removed by the upgrades. The Alchemy upgrade removes 6 general purpose containers in the basement, so empty them prior to upgrading. Likewise, all but the barrel are removed in the basement's "wine cask" room after purchasing the Enchantment upgrade. Purchasing the Living room upgrade removes the barrel in the living room and the one in the stairwell. The Bedroom, Patio, and Kitchen upgrades are safe. Unusually, the Child's BedroomHF upgrade is safe, and does not remove any crafting areas. There is an Unusual Gem in the Bedroom, even before upgrading it.

To purchase the home, you must first complete the two quests The Man Who Cried Wolf and Elisif's Tribute. Upon completion, Elisif will permit you to purchase the house from Falk Firebeard for 25,000 gold. Ownership of this home is required to become a thane of Haafingar. Jordis the Sword-Maiden is the housecarl of Proudspire and can join you after you become a thane.

[edit] Notes

  • The quest objective "Visit Proudspire Manor, your new home" will not be completed unless you enter through the side door facing Vittoria Vici's House. Any other door, and the quest objective will not update, so be sure to follow your map marker.
  • Oddly enough, there are no apparent downsides to using the manor as a home without officially buying it but instead using the stolen Fletcher's key to open the back door. Sleeping in the bed inside gives a well-rested bonus, and all containers are safe for storage.
  • Once a housecarl moves into the manor, the basement is refurnished to include a small one-person bed. A spouse living in Proudspire Manor will sometimes prefer to sleep in the housecarl's bed rather than the bed in your master bedroom. A fix for this on the PC via console is to use the command prid e2735 and markfordelete, then exit the house and enter again. The bedroll will be gone and the spouse will sleep in the right bed.
  • Purchasing the child's bedroom for Proudspire Manor will remove the shelf next to the master bedroom, and add an extra room (with two single beds) in its place.
  • Adopted children living here will have unique dialogue comments about Solitude:
    • Do you think I could be a Bard? I really like singing. (girls)
    • The Palace looks so pretty. I wish they'd let me inside... (girls)
    • I saw a Thalmor the other day. He was really scary! (girls)
    • When I grow up, I wanna join the Legion! (boys)
  • If you ask your spouse "How are the kids?" they may remark:
    • Very well, love. This is a beautiful house, and Solitude is so safe, so diverse. It's a wonderful place to raise a child.

[edit] Bugs

  • There are a few bugs which affect all houses, see the bugs section of the Houses page for details and fixes.
  • If you try to put too many books in a bookcase they will disappear and you will no longer be able to access that bookcase.
  • Proudspire Manor can be entered through the patio door using the Solitude Fletcher's key, so the manor does not need to be purchased to obtain its unusual gem.
  • The housecarl's bedroom in the basement will not be furnished after you are made thane.
    • PC Only This bug is fixed by version 1.0 of the Unofficial Skyrim Patch.
    • Pc22.png You can use the following console commands to fix the issue: prid 000e25d4 followed by enable.
      • Pc22.png If two boxes on the right of the room do not disappear (partly overlapping a chair), you can use the following console commands prid 000e273a followed by disable.
    • You could also try purchasing the home, then talking to the Jarl. After talking to her, go talk to Falk Firebeard about decorations. It should allow you to purchase the Housecarl Bedroom upgrade.[verification needed — see talk page]
  • After installing Hearthfire, the cooking pot in the kitchen disappears and the barrel under the stairs may be missing.
  • After purchasing the child's bedroom, its door may not appear making it inaccessible.
    • Pc22.png You can use the following console commands to fix the issue: prid xx00418a followed by disable.
  • The side door onto the balcony cannot be opened even if you have the house key. ?
    • Jordis has the key to the door. Completing the Thane of Haafingar quest will unlock it.
    • Pc22.png It can also be fixed using the console command unlock with the door selected.
  • Entering the house via the back door to the basement will not clear the objective Visit Proudspire Manor, your new home.
    • PC Only This bug is fixed by version 1.0 of the Unofficial Skyrim Patch.
    • Enter the house through the main entrance (up the stairs) to clear the objective.
  • Your spouse might not sleep upstairs in the master bedroom. Instead, they will sleep in the bedroll in the basement. However, you will still receive the Lover's Comfort and Mother's/Father's Love bonuses if you go to sleep when your spouse and children do.
  • It is possible that the cooking pot may not spawn correctly, making it impossible to cook foods in this house.
