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 has many amenities available for purchase, including an alchemy lab, an arcane enchanter, and cooking pot for your crafting needs.

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 and helping five citizens within the hold is required to become a thane of Haafingar. Jordis the Sword-Maiden is the housecarl of Proudspire and joins you after you become a thane.


Jordis the Sword-Maiden 

‡ This person moves here once you have purchased the property and become thane.

It is located between the Bards College and Vittoria Vici's House and is near the Blue Palace. There are a number of harvestable plants outside, including dragon's Tongue plants, hanging moss and blue mountain flowers. There are three entrances to the manor; one provides direct access to the basement and crafting stations while both the other entrances lead into the second floor and the main reception area.

Proudspire Manor

Once purchased and prior to purchasing any of the upgrades the property is far from empty. It is dirty and dusty with cobwebs throughout. However with the exception of four food barrels, five food sacks, two cupboards in the basement, a food barrel in the reception area and the child's bedroomHF all other items found prior to purchasing the upgrades will also be available after the upgrades have been purchased. The upgrades improves the quality of the furniture found in the manor and adds various items of furniture, many rugs and other items of interest. Unusually, the Child's Bedroom upgrade does not remove any crafting areas, it does remove two sets of shelves holding several potions and ingredients from the upstairs private dining room. As such it is worth purchasing this separately from the other upgrades enabling you to collect the items from the shelves before returning and purchasing the child's bedroom.

This upgrade adds a new room to the existing house, on the top floor just outside the master bedroom it adds a door into a bedroom containing two children's beds coming out from the southwest wall with long unlocked chests at the foot of the beds, a small unit between the beds holds a blue and an orange dartwing, a grass pod, a bunch of lavender, a bowl containing three purple mountain flowers and seven red mountain flowers, a pearl, an apothecary's satchel, copies of Pirate King of the Abecean, Walking the World, Vol XI, and A Children's Anuad. To the left of the beds is a small round table with a blue butterfly wing and a sweet roll on a plate with a lute leaning against the wall beside it. To the right of the beds is another small round table with a flute on top and beside this is a large map of Skyrim on a stand. There is a long wooden table and bench against the southeast wall with a platter holding a honey nut treat, a boiled creme treat and a long taffy treat, a red and a green apple. Against the northeast wall is a tall wardrobe, a wash basin, a child's practice dummy, an unlocked wooden chest containing minor loot with a wall shelf above holding a drum, some charcoal, copies of Cats of Skyrim, and Yellow Book of Riddles and a flute.

  • The quest objective "Visit Proudspire Manor, your new home" will not be completed unless you enter through the side door, up the stairs, opposite the entrance to 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 bedroom should be refurnished to include a small one-person bed. A spouse living in Proudspire Manor will sometimes prefer to sleep on the housecarl's bed roll 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.
  • 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.
    • Oh, fine. So many guards on the street here, I hardly have to worry.


  • 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.
    •   This bug is fixed by version 1.0 of the Unofficial Skyrim Patch.
    •   You can use the following console commands to fix the issue: prid 000e25d4 followed by enable.
      •   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.
  • 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.
    •   You can use the following console commands to fix the issue: prid xx00418a followed by disable. Alternatively, it's sometimes caused by the section of the wall that used to be there not disabling when the door is put in. Use prid d89eb followed by disable to disable this wall section.
  • 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.
    •   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.
    •   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.
