|We stopped by the Biltmore Estate in Asheville and while we're not big on excess, this place was impressive. The main house is 175,000 square feet! It has 250 rooms, 34 bedrooms, 43 bathrooms, and 65 fireplaces. The basement has a swimming pool (with underwater lights), a gymnasium, changing rooms, a bowling alley, servants' quarters, kitchens, and more. Yeah there are probably some other real nice places out there but this was finished in 1895! Anyway, they didn't allow pics inside but the grounds were just as impressive. The woodworking inside was awesome too.
