Vanderbilt Estate

Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire, Birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. (But only by accident! His mother was married to the younger son, not the Duke, & went into labor while at a dance there.)


Appears to be the greenhouse at the Biltmore Mansion in Asheville, NC. A wonderful space, one I'd replicate with slight differences on my dream home property.

Take a Picture Tour of Blenheim Palace in the Cotswolds

The First State Room at Blenheim Palace. More Belgian tapestries depict Marborough's military victories in the first of three "state" rooms that connect the Saloon to the Long Library.


I’d just like to take a moment to remind everyone that the library in the Biltmore Estate in Ashville, NC not only features this amazing staircase, but also includes a number of secret passage ways that run directly to the library from various guest bedrooms. For secret nighttime library assignations, guys. It’s like the Vanderbilts were practically inviting you to meet up in the library.
