Property description

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.
