Thornewood Castle is a Tudor-Gothic mansion in Tacoma Washington, designed by architect Kirtland Cutter for wealthy banker Chester Thorne as a wedding present to his new wife Anna in 1907. The house is now a privately owned B & B and event location. In 2002, Stephen King and his team selected Thornewood as the setting for a miniseries called Rose Red. A folly tower, dormers, a fountain and overgrowth was added to make the place appear as a neglected haunted mansion that had expanded to a gigantic size. This concept was inspired by the story of Sarah Winchester and her Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, CA. Rose Red's production designer, Craig Sterns had a large model built that was used for fly-over shots of this fictional gigantic mansion. I am personally not a big fan of the TV miniseries, but I do love the architecture!

This is an update to my earlier build, see "Rose Red Mansion Mini (Stephen King)" in my Planet Minecraft submissions. However, as the name suggests, that was a mini build, this is a more accurate scale of the mansion and details. the build includes interiors: The Foyer, Kitchen, Conservatory, Perspective Hallway and Mirror Library... plus many more rooms and gardens to get lost in!

Several rooms were filmed in other locations but made to appear as part of the Rose Red Mansion, these include the Pompeiian Room of the Doheny Mansion in Los Angeles, CA and the Northern Lights Dome Room of the Arctic Club in Seattle, WA. These are included in the build as well with cameo signs indicating their origins.

I recently watched the Haunting of Bly Manor on Netflix and was excited to see that they were using this old house that I've been fascinated with since 2002. However, I felt it was a major design fauxpas that they had to use CGI to alter the house to be symmetrical when it is already such an architectural gem.

I'm not fully done with it, but since I don't build in Minecraft so much anymore, I'm putting it out there as is for you all to enjoy. If you are going to use it in a Youtube video or on a server, please give me credit, thanks! Let me know what you think of it!

I didn't build it in survival, but it can be played in survival. I'm still working on the interior, so it will really be a labyrinth of rooms. Won't that be fun to try to survive in with monsters potentially around every corner!

When I saw this map, I got excited. I downloaded the mini Rose Red a while back, but it will be awesome to see a full-size one!
I saw another map that's modeled off of Rose Red, called Mills Manor, by MrRokoko. I think he might have left a comment on one of your other builds, I don't know.
Can't wait for the download!
