Just a small house on a hill in North Carolina.


Just kidding, it's actually the Biltmore House, the largest house in America. Starting in the late 1700's, Biltmore was a fabulous residence of a railway business owner and his children. It took six years to build and the 4th generation are still living on the property today. Photos were not allowed on the inside but the outside was the most extravagant! On the inside, Biltmore had 4 levels of different lavish areas. My favourite area was probably the swimming pool, one of the first private indoor, heated pool of its time. With its original underwater lighting, the pool was certainly a huge sight. Although, the swim suits of the time looked like a pain in the neck to wear! You can't even call it a swimsuit when it looks like a frilly dress with shoes...

That's really all for Asheville, North Carolina.
