The Biltmore Estate, Located in Asheville, NC was the home of the Vanderbilt family from 1895-1930. The family opened the estate to the public in 1930 and has remained on the top places to visit since. No photography is allowed in the house, but more than 8,000 acres are open to explore on the grounds.
The house sits on a hill and it is hard to find any signs of the outside world as far as you can see. This image is looking off to the Southwest.
