The Halliwell Manor is a Victorian style manor located at 1329 Prescott Street, San Francisco. The original structure was built in 1898 and was rebuilt in 1906. The manor has been in The Warren Line for five generations, the first generation being Gordon Johnson and his wife, P. Baxter. The Halliwell Manor was built on a Spiritual Nexus and has been the seat of power for The Charmed Ones since their awakening in 1998. It is also the home of the Twice-Blessed Children and the meeting place for the Fated Ones.

History Edit

The Nexus Edit

Since the Halliwell Manor is exactly situated at the center of five essential life elements (fire, water, earth, wood, and metal), it is located on top of a Spiritual Nexus. These five essential life elements are: the San Francisco Bay (Water), the Potrero Natural Hot Springs (Fire), Kenwood Park (Wood), The Twin Peaks (Earth) and Mountain Lake Park (Metal). When connected, these five points form a pentagram with the manor in the center, making it not only a spiritual nexus but a Wiccan symbol. 

The Nexus is a neutral source of power that could be accessed by good and evil. The Charmed Ones' great-grandparents bought the area and built the manor over over the Nexus  to prevent it from falling into the hands of evil. As forces of good were in control of the manor, the Nexus was described as providing an extra boost of power to the sisters and generations to come.

For this reason, good would always go on as long as the sisters were in control of the manor. However, if the manor is overtaken by evil, it would gain control over the Nexus and evil would spread. As the Nexus is a neutral force, those born on top the Nexus are more easily swayed by the forces of good and evil.

Bedrooms Edit

The Halliwell Manor has three bedrooms in the house, the master bedroom and two smaller rooms.

Master Bedroom Edit

Piper Bedroom

Piper in her Bedroom

The master bedroom was initially used by Penny Halliwell until she moved out of the manor. It was used by Patty and Victor, until their divorce and Patty's death. Victor then left, and at this point Penny moved back in to take care of her granddaughters. After Penny's death, Prue moved into the master bedroom until Piper and Leo got married, and Prue moved out so that the newlyweds could have the bigger bedroom. 

Second Bedroom Edit

Chris Bedroom

This bedroom was initially used by Piper until she switched rooms with Prue after getting married and Leo moved in. Prue then used this room until her tragic and ultimate death.

The room was then empty for a while until Paige moved into the manor. After Paige moved in with Henry, Wyatt and Chris shared the room until Wyatt moved out. Chris now inhabits the room on his own.

Third Bedroom Edit

Melinda Bedroom

Melinda's Room

The third and most likely the smallest bedroom was primarily used by Phoebe until she eventually moved into her own condo. It was also temporarily used by Billie Jenkins and presumably Christy Jenkins when they stayed at the manor until they both moved out permanently. After Phoebe and Paige moved out for good, this room was converted to a bedroom for Melinda after her birth.

Melinda decided to re-do the whole room, and it is very much her. Not Pictured: Dresser, closet, love seat, and bookcase.

Other Rooms Edit

There are several other rooms in the Halliwell Manor.

Entry Way Edit

Entry Way

The foyer is the main hall of the manor and leads straight into the sitting room, though it can also be used to access the living room directly right upon entry through the front door. The foyer is most notable for being the location where the "door tradition" started.

The Attic Edit

The attic of the manor is located on the third floor and can be accessed through a stairway on the Second Floor. It is a large space that takes up nearly the entire third floor. Aside from being a basic attic used for storage, the attic was the place where the Book of Shadows was kept by the Charmed Ones and Penny Halliwell before them. It is filled with potions, spell books, fairy tales, and more magical items.

As the sisters grew up in the manor unaware of their heritage, the attic was kept locked by Penny at all times while she told her granddaughters that it was sealed off completely. The door was unlocked the night Phoebe went there after the Spirit Board had given her the word "Attic" as a message. 

The Kitchen Edit

The kitchen of the manor was a large and bright-colored room with an entrance to the dining room, the basement, and the laundry room. Like any household, the sisters spent a lot of time in the kitchen for regular daily activities and conversations. Additionally, the sisters kept several potion ingredients in the kitchen and brewed potions when the potion required to be prepared on the stove. As a chef and most skilled potion maker, Piper spends the most time in the kitchen

In 2003, in a twisted attempt to win Phoebe back, Cole accepted the offer to become an Avatar, giving him the power to alter reality. He created a new reality where Piper and Phoebe had never met Paige, thus ensuring the Charmed Ones were never reconstituted. However, Paige accidentally wound up in the new reality as well and managed to reunite her sisters and Phoebe vanquished Cole once and for all. In this reality, the manor was controlled by Cole and his demons, with Phoebe being stuck in the manor and a loveless marriage.

Wyatt had transformed the manor into a museum to show the power from which he came. The manor was filled with several memorabilia of important events in the lives of the Charmed Ones and tours were given to mortals.

2006 Edit

Main article: Ultimate Battle

In 2006, a battle between Christy and Billie Jenkins and the Halliwell Sisters was fought. In the progress, both respective sisters had obtained the powerful force, known as the Hollow, to destroy each other. However, the clash of their powers destroyed the manor in a huge explosion, killing everyone except Piper and Billie. Both sisters then set out to change the past and save their respective sisters. Piper and her family managed to prevent the manor from being destroyed in a new timeline by returning the Hollow to its burial ground. The Ultimate Battle was later won when Billie realized she was being manipulated, and joined the Charmed Ones to vanquish Christy and the Triad.

Door Tradition Edit

A trademark of Charmed is that the front door is magically closed at the end of each season. This tradition started in both the unaired and aired pilot by Prudence Halliwell. Ever since every season finale ended with the door magically being closed. This tradition is said to be kept during Fated, although it was not seen in the pilot.

  • A dollhouse replica of Halliwell Manor was constructed by Penny Halliwell.
  • The Halliwell Manor exists in both the Spiirtual and Ancestral Plane.
