The Biltmore House in Asheville, North Carolina blew my mind, for many reasons. I was impressed though when I walked into a room and the entire top of the walls (above the horizontal boards about 3.5ft high that span rooms sometimes, can’t remember the name right now) was covered in beautiful Spanish leather.
There were many other luxurious amenities and furnishings, I recommend checking it out if you ever are in the area. 180,000 ft^2 of RoomPorn overload. It is also ~120 years old with an indoor bowling alley (a la There Will Be Blood) and swimming pool. Most people didn’t have indoor plumbing. The grounds are awesome too. Like awe-inspiring, even in the winter. I can’t give you images of the interior because it wasn’t allowed for whatever reason. Vanderbilt was on some 1% shit for sure.
*edit: words done got boozed up. Speaking of: they make wine. It’s alright.
