Biltmore Estate | George Washington Vanderbilt residence. Asheville, NC. Built between 1889 and 1895. Designed by Richard Morris Hunt in Châteauesque-style; 175,000 sq ft, 250-room mansion. Landscape design by Frederick Law Olmsted. Largest privately-owned home in the U.S.
This is an atrium in the Biltmore Mansion in North Carolina. The tour of the house is amazing but this was one of my favorite architectural features. I want one (on a smaller scale) in any future house that I build. Perfect entertaining space
