The historic Biltmore Estate in Asheville

About The Biltmore

The Biltmore estate is the largest private home ever built in America and was commissioned by George Washington Vanderbilt II in 1889 and finished in 1895. It is a stunning example of Gilded Age architecture with trees, expansive lawns, and luscious gardens all around the property. A true testament to the opulence of the era, it is now a historical landmark and museum, welcoming all within its walls that once housed only the wealthiest members of society. Though it is considered a mansion, its incredible size and grandiosity are more reminiscent of a castle with a great tower in the center and others overlooking the surrounding area in all directions. Step into the past and experience an incredible opportunity that is worth visiting at least once in your life.
