The Biltmore Estate NC was built in 1895 for George Vanderbilt II, the son of railroad magnate and entrepreneur William Henry Vanderbilt. George had fallen in love with the Blue Ridge Mountains and decided to build his country estate near Asheville to use for entertaining his family and guests. He commissioned Richard Morris Hunt to design the French chateau inspired home and later he chose Frederick Law Olmsted, a man now known as the father of landscape architecture in the United States, to design and lay out the more than 125,000 acres of gardens, dense hardwood forests and rolling hillsides. Vanderbilt's grand Biltmore Estate was a home unlike any other at its time and it remains a timeless symbol of an era when so many were striking it rich. During the time when the Vanderbilt's used it to entertain famous guests from around the world, it housed a swimming pool, bowling alley, and elevator; all were amazing marvels at the time. Today, Biltmore Estate NC spreads across 4 acres or approximately 175,000 square feet and still includes priceless fine art, book collections, antiques, and furnishings including a chess set that was once owned by Napoleon Bonaparte.
