I bought the house in Whiterun, only to find out that it doesn't have the option to buy an Enchanting table (though it does have alchemy and access to a full smithy next door).

If I'm going to buy another house, I want to make sure it has access to all the crafting stations. So which houses have which upgrades?

While not convenient, there is at least a 24-hour accessible enchanting station in Dragonsreach. – agf Nov 17 '11 at 6:09

Every home except for the house in Whiterun has an Enchanting Table upgrade availiable, as well as the option to procure Alchemical facilities.

No home has access to a Smithy. Riften and Whiterun offer the most convenient access to forge facilities, though Riftens forge lacks Smelting equipment.

It seems that every other house has an enchanting table upgrade available for it. The cheapest of these are for 8000g in Markarth or Riften.

It would appear, however, that Alchemy, Enchanting, and Cooking are the only crafting stations available in any house. You'll still need to find a blacksmith for everything else.

See Skyrim Houses wiki for more details.

Ah, I forgot cooking. Do all the houses have cooking? – David Fullerton Nov 16 '11 at 23:26
Yes, I believe so. – Pithlit Nov 16 '11 at 23:40
