Biltmore Estate is a large private estate and tourist attraction in Asheville, North Carolina. Biltmore House, the main house on the estate, is a Châteauesque-styled mansion built by George Washington Vanderbilt II between 1889 and 1895 and is the largest privately owned house in the United States, at 178,926 square feet (16,622.8 m2)[2] and featuring 250 rooms. Still owned by one of Vanderbilt's descendants, it stands today as one of the most prominent remaining examples of the Gilded Age, and of significant gardens in the jardin à la française and English Landscape garden styles in the United States. In 2007, it was ranked eighth in America's Favorite Architecture by the American Institute of Architects.

Yah, American royalty! A tidy little mansion...? I was bemused by the angled features to the left of the central tower, but I decided they must be stairwells, with full-height windows along the stairs. I will definitely add this to the list when I visit Asheville!

The Vanderbilt's also built the Breakers in Newport, Rhode Island. And I've stayed at their Adirondack camp, Sagamore I'm sure there were New York residences, too. But the Biltmore is awesome, inside and out.

I'm going to see if I can find enough to show a small tour, Cathy, because of the response. Thank you.

Your welcome Francamia, I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Its hard to imagine Barb. Totally hard.

The Guilded age and it was the Vanderbuilts, Floyd. I wouldn't be surprised that this wasn't their main house either.

AND there are secret passages for sure and who knows what that no one knows about. Thanks Shirley.

It is a great place to visit, Toto.

Enough fireplaces for you to savor for at least three days, Putter!!!

Your welcome, Beekay. Its hard to even comprehend having 205 rooms!

Beekay

Isn't that grand. Thank you Warbler

Amazing. I'd like to see it, but have no desire to live there. (No tower rooms for Spricey and me to arm wrestle over!!) Fireplaces, though....... :o)

Toto

An amazing estate. Have gone through several times and still find things to see. Next time, I want to take the attics tour.
