11,000 Sq' Manor + Guest House W/ Sleeping For 40 On 400 Park Like Acres

See us on Wedding Wire:

http://www.weddingwire.com/biz/twickenham-house-boone/444bc5af031a6f00.html

The most breathtaking estate in the high country, nestled at 4600', offers that rare assemblage of a true private sanctuary. Just minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, the estate has over 400 acres of park-like grounds, threaded by rushing water, ponds, and abundant wildlife. A beautifully manicured lawn surrounds Twickenham House with spectacular mountain views for a ceremony site or receptions.

The charming Old English Manor boasts more than 11,000 square feet of exquisitely finished living space designed for entertaining. Just a step away is a spacious guest cottage. Together, the estate can accommodate over 40 guests comfortable and offers the following amenities: a commercial kitchen; two additional kitchens; a spa with hot tub, steam room, sauna, and indoor endless pool; fitness facility; library with billiards; movie theatre and more. The guesthouse has a game room with Ping-Pong, foosball and air hockey.

Twickenham, located on Phoenix Mountain, overlooks the historic village of Jefferson, NC, among the famed Blue Ridge Mountains. Phoenix Mountain is also known as 'the Rocky Mountain of the East' due to its 1.6-mile cliff face. Phoenix is covered with a diverse mix of vegetation resulting from its high-altitude, unique topography, snowy winters and temperate summers. It is also boasts spectacular geological formations and a broad array of indigenous wildlife including white tail deer, black bear, wild turkey, pheasant, grouse and three and half miles of native trout streams. In addition, the mountain is home to an unusual high-altitude fen that feeds the trout streams on the property.

Among the fauna are numerous wild orchids and the prized Morel mushrooms. For years botanists have studied the creeping aven, a rare plant that was prevalent during the Ice Age and now only exists on the cliffs of Phoenix Mountain and Europe.

The grounds are great for walking, hiking, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, fishing in the stocked pond or for native trout in the streams. There are 50-mile long-range views from the terrace with fireplace built into the cliffs. Stunning sunsets and sunrises await you.

The estate is available for four or more days, allowing time to enjoy your guests and truly embrace every moment of your wedding activities. Relax and enjoy family and friends or experience great bonding as you gather together for a truly memorable week.

Twickenham is a doable destination wedding. Guests will gather at the estate for the rehearsal dinner, wedding, and reception, even a send off breakfast. The grounds boast many different wedding sites.

Parking is available for 100 automobiles to accommodate larger weddings and events.

The surrounding area offers many cultural and recreational experiences. Nearby villages of Jefferson, Glendale Springs, Blowing Rock and Banner Elk represent the historic center of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Mount Jefferson, Mount Rogers, the River (designated National Heritage River by President Clinton) and New River State Park are additional nearby natural attractions.

Though worlds away from traffic and city congestion, this legendary estate is conveniently sited within 3 miles of Ashe County Regional Airport and villages of Jefferson and West Jefferson, less than 10 miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway, 20 miles from Boone and just 119 miles from Charlotte.

Twickenham is also easily accessible by plane, as it is located three miles from Ashe County Airport, 5000' runway, capable of landing most private jets including Falcon 50's, Beech jets, Citations and Hawkers.

We LOVED our vacation at Twickenham!

  • 5 of 5
This past Christmas we spent a magical time at Twickenham. The house was warm and welcoming with fires already lit in the Great Rooms when we arrived. The house was large enough for us to comfortably host extended family for our holiday celebrations. There was something for everyone. Hiking and incredible grounds for me and my family, a state of the art media room for my brother in law's family, and a relaxing sauna/garden room for my in-laws.

Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This was a beautiful and quiet retreat! We really enjoyed our stay. Beautiful views. The full kitchen is amazing. We used it as a retreat for our leadership team. It was so nice to have so many beds. Spacious yet homey. Could be perfect for a family reunion or other get away.

Beautiful location/Poorly maintained

  • 2 of 5
My family and I rented both the main house and guest house for a family reunion with 24 people staying at Twickenham. The location and scenery are incredible. Sadly the house and the owners left much to be desired. The door to the basement of the guest house was taped up and there were air fresheners all over trying to mask the smell of a dead animal they were unable to locate. The smell of mold matched the smell of dead animal. The guest house was dirty, it had no coffee pot or toaster, the furniture was in need of repair and the sofa just had a towel thrown over the bottom bare cushion. The guest house had no wifi and the main house only had it on the main floor in certain areas. The main house was in a little better shape but was filthy. My bathroom had months of green mold and a large amount of black hair all over the shower; pictures of this were shown to the owner who made excuses and promises that were never realized. The majority of all furniture was in disrepair; there was an oversized teddy bear in the playroom with a hole in the crotch with stuffing coming out of it, toilet seats with chunks missing, treadmill didn't work. The "gourmet" kitchen is no longer gourmet; not one sharp knife, dishwasher falling out of the cabinet, water leaking from underneath the refrigerator, filthy drawers and cabinets, no blender, no food processor, no baking pans or sheets, no wine opener. We were there for a week over 4th of July; there was no propane for the gas grill. When I called the owner about this fact, he never apologized and he told me to drive to a local store to buy some. My niece, nephew and thier 3 children had to go to a hotel in Boone because they couldn't stay in the guest house. The owner promised to get them a 4 bedroom condo a mile from the house. When they arrived the condo was a 2 bedroom full of empty beer bottles and dirty ashtrays. The owners did pay for thier hotel but we have this reunion every 2 years and the reason we chose Twickenham was specifically that we could all be together.
Again, the location is stunning and we enjoyed our time there. Watching the a World Cup in the theatre room was very cool, the children loved the playroom, the vistas from the overlook were breath taking and we played badminton, croquet and enjoyed the fire pit every night. The house was spectacular in its day but the inside has not been maintained or cleaned properly between guests. The owners need to learn about hospitality or hire someone who does.

Owner's Response: We had guests checking in before and after who have left great reviews, finding the estate perfectly maintained. All requests from the guests were met immediately. The staff is stunned and saddened by this review.

VERY WARM AND INVITING

  • 5 of 5
This property has it all- if you like to cozy up to a warm fire and stay inside, you have all you need and plenty to do. Our kids loved the movie theater, indoor pool and outdoor jacuzzi. If you love the outdoors, there are so many places to hike and the VIEWS! Wow, it was amazing to look out over 3 different counties! Be ready to get your exercise- it is at the top of a mountain- hikers wear your hiking boots! We have 5 kids ages 3-15 and everyone had a wonderful time!

Twickenham house and estate is located at 4600' on its own mountain, with many outdoor activities. There is hiking, fishing, climbing on the property. It is it's own destination.

The weather is in the upper 70's in the summer. You can watch the fireworks from above during 4th of July. Nearby New River, an American Heritage River, offers a lot of fun recreation - swimming, fishing, tubing, kayaking and canoeing. The Mountains offer exhilarating hiking and gorgeous walking. The village of West Jefferson has many art galleries, coffee shops, restaurants, a cheese factory, other quaint shops including bee keeping shop, retro movie theatre, bowling even a brewery. Skiing is not too far away, pretty 45 minute drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway. A great place to relax and enjoy natural beauty.

At the cliffs, on the property, is a large terrace with a fireplace at 4600' with 50 mile long range views.

There is also a nearby private airport that can land a galaxy. Also there is even a place to land a helicopter on the property.
