Cole: "I told you to stay in the house."
Ruth Cobb: "The house is protected by guards and magic."
Cole Turner talking to Ruth Cobb.[src]

This house belonged to Ruth Cobb, a mortal practitioner of dark magic. It was a wooden building with two floors, the ground floor and an upstairs, and had a brick chimney and reasonably large grounds outside.


On All Hallow's Eve, Ruth pretended to mock the sabbat by holding a celebration at her house, when, in reality, she was trying to tap into the Source of All Magic. After Ruth kidnapped Charlotte Warren, she took her to the first bedroom at the top of the stairs[1] and protected the house with guards and magic.[2] Prue, Piper and Phoebe Halliwell finally, after several attempts, got into the house and rescued Charlotte, taking her to the Protective Circle.[3]
