The house sits midway up a sloping hill above the harbor and the center of town. It stands out from the other houses like a narrow tower. It has three rows of windows and a gabled roof. It is painted a dark grey but the door and window frames are bright white. The roof is a high arch and a blue grey color. The house faces out over the harbor.
Simon, Jane, and Barney explore the house and find a hidden attic. Inside the attic is where they find the manuscript that leads them to the grail. Later the house is burgled by members of the Dark who are looking for the manuscript.
During the Drew's stay, Mrs. Palk is their housekeeper.
