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.

Mark Twain is a great vacation house and only a couple of miles up the 4x4 beach. We had 52 faimily members (including 12 babies and toddlers) for the week and there was so much room for everyone. We love the layout of the second floor that is very spacious, open and has the kitchen, dining area, living room and theater room all on the same floor. People aren’t off in speparate rooms doing different activities, they’re all together. The very large pool and deck was also a wonderful place for everyone to hang out. Beachfront also very nice.
