{{Place Summary
|imgdesc=Jakben Imbel's beautiful Talos Plaza house
It is the residence of [[Oblivion:Jakben, Earl of Imbel|Jakben Imbel]], an ancient vampire posing as a local nobleman. The Earl's servant, [[Oblivion:Gemellus Axius|Gemellus Axius]], also lives in the house. A nest of vampires can be found in the family crypt, a small cave accessible from the basement. You will visit this house during the [[Oblivion:Thieves Guild|Thieves Guild]] quest [[Oblivion:Boots of Springheel Jak|Boots of Springheel Jak]]. The house can be entered and fully explored without starting the related quest, but the Catacombs are locked and require [[Oblivion:Imbel Family Crypt Key|a key]] to access.
'''Jakben Imbel's House''' is divided into five areas; four of them are regular house areas and include [[#Jakben Imbel's House|Jakben Imbel's House]], [[#Jakben Imbel's Private Quarters|Jakben Imbel's Private Quarters]], [[#Jakben Imbel's Study|Jakben Imbel's Study]] and [[#Jakben Imbel's Basement|Jakben Imbel's Basement]]. The fifth area, ''[[#Catacombs|Catacombs]]'', is actually a cave hidden underneath the house, containing vampires.

Jakben’s locked desk has a copy of ''[[Oblivion:The Book of Daedra|The Book of Daedra]]'' and three bottles of [[Oblivion:Tamika's West Weald Wine|Tamika's West Weald Wine]] on top, as well as a locked jewelry box with a chance of enchanted jewelry.

===Jakben Imbel's Basement===
[[File:OB-interior-Jakben Imbel's Basement.jpg|thumb|right|Jakben Imbel's Basement]]
The basement area is innocently looking on the surface and appears as a typical basement used for storage; however, it hides the entrance to the [[#Catacombs|Catacombs]], which is locked until you require the [[Oblivion:Keys#Imbel_House_Key|key]] during the related quest. When entering the basement from the western door, the first room contains four barrels, four crates, three sacks and two chests, all with clutter, as well as two open food sacks. The central area of the basement contains eight clutter sacks and a single clutter chest, while two cupboards and a chest of drawers contains upper-class clothing.
All the containers in the basement contain clutter, but two wine racks would make [[Oblivion:Tamika|Tamika]] proud back in Skingrad - an impressive 50 bottles of her famous wine.
Even more clutter can be found in the eastern room, divided into five sacks, one barrel and one chest; however, a most impressive wine collection can also be found, with a whopping 50 bottles of [[Oblivion:Tamika's West Weald Wine|Tamika's West Weald Wine]].

The '''Catacombs''' is a small cave underneath Jakben Imbel's House containing vampires.
For such a small cave, the tomb certainly has its share of enemies. Coming through the door at '''A''' will place you in a cavern containg one coffin, with a 50% chance of an enemy on the opposite side of the room. To the left is a small side passage, leading to a room containing up to two enemies. Behind an average locked door is an area containing two coffins and a healing chest, possibly being guarded by a vampire. An unlocked door leads to a dead end and two treasure chests.
