    You can build even a bigger house but your garve will be a regular size anyway.

    I bet this Mansion was built with money from the African Salve Trade, America is not England/Europe.

    The landscape architect, Olmstead was based out of Fruitlands Nursery in Augusta Ga. After he and his business partner, Berkman, had both died, Berkman's 2nd wife got everything including Fruitlands. Being the Sweet Young Thing of the 1920s, she had a penchant for golfers. She sold the nursery and her friend Bobby Jones designed what is now the Augusta National, host of The Masters Golf Tournament.

    I went through the Biltmore mansion and estate years ago. Mr. And Mrs. Vanderbilt had a daughter Cornelia. I went through the front door and went upstairs. All of a sudden, I felt that Mr. Vanderbilt wanted a son so badly. His heart ached for a son to leave his estate, wealth and run his company's.

    Wonder how many people died in accidents to build this for the greedy capitalist vulture.

    The money that built this place was A LOT different than today's money. This was pre regulation wealth…
    These types of fortunes can not be made in modern times. There wealth was unimaginable today… Buy this home was a sons home and it took all of his wealth to complete … He had to sell off much of the estates surrounding acreage to sustain it. And I believe that it is currently a working estate funded by its winery.
    Very cool story and this home one of many Vanderbilt mansions is the Gem… Amazing to see. Watch the movie Ritchie Rich with McCalie Caulkin and you see quite a lot of it.

    What a beautiful video! There's a lot of history about this place in "Fortune's Children: The Fall of the House of Vanderbilt".

    I think it's amazing that they still own and MAINTAIN it. It must bring in a wealth of tourism to North Carolina.

    Surely San Simeon was a larger private residence?

    I’m from Asheville (Biltmore Forest actually)… ownership is now with the daughter and son of William Amherst Vanderbilt Cecil (pronounced sessle). He died 10/31/2017. There are lots of mansions in the vicinity, but they’re occupied.
