What is your favorite (non-mod) player home?
Mine is Breezehome. So cosy, so warm (dat fireplace) and two bookshelves right next to it for the first 36 books you read. Perfect for <20 level characters.

It depends whether it's one of the homes located in the five cities, or from Hearthfire. Personally I prefer either Hjerim, Honeyside, or Vlindrel Hall when I want a house in the city. For Hearthfire, I'm going to stick with Lakeview Manor because Lake Ilinalta is one of my favorite places in the game, plus there are some very good mods that can improve the home to make it better.
They all suck.

I agree the vanilla homes--including the ones in Hearthfire--may not be up to par with modded player homes, but they still have some charm of their own even if not to the degree mods have.

That, because they actually fit seamlessly into vanilla Skyrim. Most of the modded homes are fitted out better than the Blue Palace. There's not many places in the world where hero's and plebs have better accomodation than the monarchy - lol. So.. you need to keep modding to make the mods fit in seamlessly too - heh heh

There's a ton of lightweight homes that fit into the world flawlessly, what are you on about?

Honeyside is my favourite vanilla home and Lakeview the expansion.

I only have one player home that adds a ♥♥♥♥ ton of stuff and that's because I have the guild starter mod and I use it as the castle base for my guild. All of my other player homes are like a bed and a fireplace some bookshelves and a wardrobe maybe an alchemy table. And actually I have one "player home" mod that's more for ranger/hunter characters that basically creates little hidden caves and such that you can find and set up camp in. Sure there are some player homes that basically make you a demi-god just because you own that home but there's a lot that are the opposite

Breezehome nice and comfy with an almost thanksgiving xmas holiday ambience. I also like its location with plenty of stores and quests to be had. So far i have yet to check out any other homes due to having so much fun adventuring. Towns i would like to have homes in are Falkreath with the creepy graveyard, Riften with its orange fall colors, Solitude for its black haunted house looking buildings which remind me of the mages guild from DAGGERFALL.

Lakeview manor. The view is excellent from my porch, and there's plenty of wildlife for me to hunt when I need food.

Indeed, the vanilla homes don't have much in the way of decor or splendor that is considered to be pleasing to some players. They more or less feel like a generic location that's just there for a player to buy and use as a home. Players can decorate the houses with stuff from their journies in Skyrim, but it's still not really enough.

The same goes for Hearthfire as well; while Hearthfire does provide options on how you want to customize your home, it's limited since you're only allowed to chose from three sets of buildings in addition to the main home and celler. You'll also feel forced to fill an empty spot just to make it better, so you will likely fill the entire home with the decorations Hearthfire provides.

Mods can make it better since you can find a home you're pleased with. Many are standalone or are involved in quests, but there are some which actually improve the vanilla homes along with the homes in Hearthfire, like the TNF house mods for example.
