If Only George Vanderbilt Could Have Been A Private Residence Club Owner

Asheville, NC - March 12, 2012 - (RealEstateRama) -- When George Washington Vanderbilt visited Asheville, North Carolina, in 1888 he fell in love with the area’s fresh air, great weather, vibrant culture and views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Vanderbilt, heir to a family fortune, returned to Asheville the following year to begin building his summer estate modeled after a 16th-century French châteaux. He created his “little mountain escape” so he could pursue his passion for art, literature, and horticulture. Today, Vanderbilt’s home, known as Biltmore Estate, is the largest privately owned “vacation home” in the U.S. At an incredible 175,000 square feet it is larger than most hotels.
