The tower stood only three stories tall. Vines covered nearly every one of the field stones used to form the structure. Numerous lean-tos and shacks had been added to the exterior to accommodate Elminster's growing collection of items both magical and mundane. The front of the tower was adorned with a simple wooden door.
The first floor of the tower held a simple kitchen and office. A spiral staircase led to the second floor, which held Elminster's personal quarters. An even smaller room was located on the third floor and was sometimes used as a work room for guests.
