Built by George Washington Vanderbilt II between 1889 and 1895, the Biltmore Estate located in Asheville, NC is the largest privately owned home in the United States. Covering over 8000 acres, this national historic landmark attracts thousands of visitors annually and now has a hotel, winery and a dairy farm on the property. Take a tour of part of the estate with us as we get in to areas that are not allowed by the public. It should be noted that photographs are usually not permitted inside the estate. Flash photography can damage some of the historic materials used in the house. Therefore we used only natural light in shooting these photos. Our thanks to the Biltmore Estates for permission to shoot the interiors' of the house. To those who have never seen the Biltmore house, this is a home like no other. No expense was spared in it's construction. Enjoy and Happy Holiday's!
