Maxima probably didn’t know about Ingsol’s attic or else she would have had Pixel or someone keep Sydney company (i.e. supervise) out there. Still, it’s unlocked and poorly concealed, so one would hope there’s not a Hand of Vecna laying around up there.

The average human amasses quite a bunch of stuff over their lifetime. Some are better about purging themselves down to the essentials, while some are hoarders. I hang on to some key articles from my childhood. I have a folder of terrible drawings from when I was a kid, my 8-bit Nintendo (actually all my consoles), a VHS copy of the original non-special edition Star Wars movies, even though I don’t have a VHS player any more. You know, stuff like that.

A 700 year old vampire would have to be really selective about what mementos to hang on to. I mean, ignoring the occasional involuntary purge, whether it’s fleeing a mob of angry villagers or losing it all in the odd London fire, someone a few centuries old would probably need quite a few storage lockers or maybe just very little attachment to the past, and when was the last time you saw a story about a vampire that wasn’t chocked full of flashbacks? Any vampire would probably have several caches of, well, mostly sentimental crap, but also a few priceless works of art and maybe an Eye of Vecna.
