Items stored in the Sanctum Santorum:
Cloak of Levitation- Allow Strange to fly.

Eye of Agamotto- Strange's most powerful artifiact.  The eye negates evil magic and many other things

Orb of Agamotto - A crystal ball used for Strange to gaze into and see various things including into other worlds.

Book of Vishanti - Powerful book of white "Good" magic

Lay out of structure:
 The house also appears at times to have vast spaces open inside of it. That seem to be far larger than the outside of the house would indicate.  This would seem to be magically induced.

Basement- Storage, Furnace, Laundry
First Floor - Large Living rooms, dining rooms and a library.  The kitchen is shown to have a chained up fridge from the dangrous and bizarre foods that Strange is forced to eat to keep his strength.
Second Floor- living quarters/ bedrooms for Strange, Wong and guests
Third Floor- A temple like structure that is called specifically the Sanctum Santorum, includes meditation rooms, museum of magical artifacts, the anomaly rue window, and an occult library

Powers:
The Sanctorum possesses a few unique powers.

 Illusion - The home can hide itself with illusions such as appearing to be a construction site or a derelict house.  It possesses a variety of protective shields and forces inside the house to keep bad things or at least unwanted guests out.

Marvel has begun releasing a few pictures revealing their concept art for the Sanctum Santorum.

Items that can be seen:

  • The iconic window with Strange symbol known as the Seal of Vishanti on it
