The Biltmore House

Biltmore

This is a beautiful drawing of the Biltmore House in Asheville, North Carolina.  It was drawn by Shane Kindschi who is the son of a friend if mine.  I bought this print when I was visiting the Biltmore House.

The Biltmore House was built in the late 1800s by George Vanderbuilt.  It is the largest privately owned house in the United States and a tourist attraction.  The house is 178,926 square feet on  8,000 acres.  From the time it was built, it had electricity. Also there is an indoor pool and a bowling alley.

The Vanderbuilts wanted it to be a working estate so a dairy was established on the estate.  In 1985 the grandson of George Vanderbuilt, William Cecil turned the dairy into a winery.  Today 170,000 cases of wine is sold each year.  Also you can eat at various restaurants and stay in 4 star rooms on the estate. You can learn more about the Biltmore House here.

I will post some of my Biltmore House pictures later on my blog.
