This manor is home to Bolvyn Venim, his family, and his retainers. It is divided into five sections:
This section is basically one large room, dominated by a large mushroom planting in the center, with doors leading off in four directions. The door to the right as you enter leads to the Guard Quarters. The door on the left leads to the Right Wing, and the door across from the entrance leads to the Private Quarters. There are four people here, two of whom will attack you during the Rescue Varvur Sarethi quest. There is some kreshweed growing around the large mushroom, and some bittergreen in planters above two of the doors, but it's probably not worth the effort of harvesting due to the trouble the guards will give you for it.
Two items of interest are found in the Guard Quarters. First, in the fourth bedroom on the left (the only one which is Hlervu Locket, needed for a Thieves Guild quest. As well, look for a copy of The Wolf Queen, Book I, a Security skill book, in the middle bedroom on the right. The two guards here will attack you during the Rescue Varvur Sarethi quest, but there's no need to go here during that quest, so you can avoid that problem.), you'll find the
From the Entrance doorway, stairs lead down to a main room, which hides a secret - behind the tapestry in the alcove to the northwest, you'll find a Varvur Sarethi, son of councilman Athyn Sarethi. There is a note with a key to the door on one of the benches in the main room. Note that rescuing the prisoner will cause the two guards here, as well as most of the other guards in the Manor, to attack you. Best bet is to go back up the stairs in the main room to get back to the Entrance section. The other two hallways both lead down into the Private Quarters.door, behind which is a prisoner, one
This section consists of two rooms. The larger one which connects to both the Entrance and the Right Wing consists of a raised walkway with stairs on either side. The doors on the southwest end both above and below the walkway lead to the Right Wing, and the door up the stairs to the northwest leads back to the Entrance. The northeast end of the walkway leads into a second room, where the Archmaster Bolvyn Venim may be found. He is the only person here of any importance, though four of his guards will attack you during the Rescue Varvur Sarethi quest, should you wander into this section by mistake. Below the walkway, a hallway leads underneath Bolvyn's area to two stairs, both leading to different sections of the Manor Bedrooms.
The section is divided into two parts. The small southern room, accessed via the door on the right from the Private Quarters, is Bolvyn's quarters. There you will find his wife Dilvene, though she has nothing interesting to say. On the small table in the corner, look for a copy of 2920, Morning Star, a Long Blade skill book. In the closet, you'll find a random selection of exquisite clothing. The locked chest just has some gold in it. The larger northern part of the Manor Bedrooms, accessed from the left-hand door, contains rather little of interest. A series of hallways lead to four bedrooms, none of which contains much of value, though there is some extravagant clothing in the closets here. On the plus-side, this section is completely unguarded, so you are free to take what you wish.

- Note that while Bolvyn Venim is the Archmaster of House Redoran, the majority of the people in the Manor are not members of the Redoran faction. This is because most of them will attack you during the Rescue Varvur Sarethi quest, and you may be forced to kill them. If they were members of the House, you could end up kicked out of the faction during this quest. Only Bolvyn himself, his wife Dilvene, and Varvur Sarethi are actually members of the House. Anyone else you may kill without fear of reprisal (from House Redoran, at least - the city guards might not be so forgiving).
