Proudspire Manor is the most expensive house available in Skyrim. It is located next to the Bards College and Vittoria Vici's House on the east side of Solitude. Though initially blighted by dust and cobwebs at first, renovating it will improve its appearance.

When walking towards the Blue Palace, there is a fire in a brazier on the left just before the Bards College. Proudspire Manor is the door before the brazier. It can also be accessed by going up the steps before that doorway; Vittoria Vici's house is the door to the left, while Proudspire Manor is the door on the right. The exterior of the manor has a fair amount of flowers that respawn in a few game weeks if picked.


This manor may be bought for 25,000 GoldIcon from Falk Firebeard after completing The Man Who Cried Wolf and Elisif's Tribute. The total cost (including decorations) is 39,000 GoldIcon, or 36,000GoldIcon if one lacks the Hearthfire add-on. Buying this house is one of the things that must be done before becoming a Thane of Haafingar. With the Hearthfire add-on, a children's room may be added for 3,000 GoldIcon. The doorway to it replaces the two shelves to the left of the master bedroom's entrance.

Advantages and disadvantagesEdit

Proudspire Manor is by far the most expensive home for sale. While it has both an alchemy table and an enchanting table, it offers fewer storage options than Hjerim. The lighting is better than Hjerim's, the children's roomHF, is by far the most luxurious, and it doesn't come at the cost of losing another room as is the case with most other purchasable homes. Solitude itself offers excellent amenities, however, including the widest selection of shopkeepers in the game, but it lacks a smelter for those with a focus in Smithing. Proudspire Manor is also the location of one of the Stones of Barenziah, making it very desirable to gain entrance to. Lastly, from the patio, the Dragonborn has an excellent view; arguably one of the best in all of Skyrim.


A selection of upgrades are available to buy from the Jarl's steward after the house has been purchased.
