Property Details

Enjoy sunrises over the ocean and sunsets.
Cherished beach vacation memories.
Approximately 2.3 miles up the beach. Bookings are non-refundable.
Oceanfront

This 18-bedroom oceanfront home magically combines grandeur with the feel of the old Outer Banks. The warmth of natural materials abounds in marble, stone and slate, generously tiled bathrooms, granite kitchen and bar tops and tile and heart pine flooring. A commercial-type Viking kitchen and ample dining space make meals a pleasure. Several well-stocked libraries and other private places provide opportunities for quiet retreat. The pool table, baby grand piano with player-piano option, and PA system provide the tools needed for all occasions.

Enjoy sunrises over the ocean and sunsets on the sound from this home’s high elevation and extensive decking. A raised walkway leads you to the large pool and pool house. Enjoy the gazebo dune deck, a chance to see wild horses and ultimately, the ocean. "The Mark Twain" invites you to relax, escape the hardships of everyday life and create cherished beach vacation memories. Approximately 2.3 miles up the beach.

*Dogs welcome (1 max., no cats). No additional fee or deposit required.

* Whole-house reverse osmosis water filtration system.
* Accessible by All wheel drive, 4X4 Vehicles. Part of the guests who do not have AWD or 4X4 can park off site 2.5 miles from the house. We provide 3 free parking spots for our guests. The houses are on the beach. So you have to drive up the beach (with reduced tire pressure approximately 10-15 pounds to get to the house). Usually it is an easier drive during low tide and when it is not extremely hot. Otherwise the sand on the beach does require you to make sure you have reduced air to 10 pounds etc.

Parking Lot good for 12 vehicles
