Modders have put an awful lot of effort into making sure Skyrim has continually evolved and expanded in the years since it was first released into the world.

Many have focused on changing the game by adding fresh boss battles, tougher bandits, and revamped buildings to it, with a few even going as far as giving the Dragonborn the chance to wear some exotic Maomer armour or wield some spells inspired by the Eye of Magnus.

If you’re a vampire-hunting member of the Dawnguard who’s more interested in finding a suitable home to hang your crossbow in when your day of monster slaying is done, a new mod might be worth taking a look at.

Fancy hanging your Dawnguard armour up in a majestic town when you fire up Skyrim this weekend?

The mod in question is called ‘Whitepeak Tower - Dawnguard Themed Player Home’, and is the latest work of modder balcer58. Some of their previous projects have given the Dragonborn the chance to move into a massive castle near Rorikstead and a cosy cottage in The Rift.

This time, they’ve decided to add another interesting property to Skyrim’s portfolio of available real estate, in the form of Whitepeak Tower, a Dawnguard-themed fortress perched on a mountain west of Whiterun.

Boasting six floors that house areas for you and some followers or family members to sleep, dine and hang out, the tower also has a display room with specialised spaces to show off everything from dragon priest masks to important Dawnguard DLC artefacts like Auriel’s Bow.

In terms of crafting, you can look forward to a full laboratory floor with gear for alchemy and enchanting, as well as a massive armoury hidden away in the basement, where you’ll find everything you could need to upgrade and temper your gear before you head into battle with some bloodsuckers.

There’s also lots of space to plant ingredients on the tower’s balcony, which looks to boast a pretty breath-taking view across the tundra.

If all those details have you sold on the property, you’ll need to make sure you pick up its key from a strongbox nestled in a tree stump near the front door, where you can also find the corpse of the tower’s previous owner, who, ironically, was the unfortunate victim of a vampire attack.

Regardless of whether you’re now desperately struggling to fit all of the cure disease potions you keep on hand to fight Sanguinare Vampiris into one suitcase, make sure to follow us for more updates on The Elder Scrolls 6 and the interesting world of Skyrim modding, including our top mods of the month.
