George Vanderbilt's country estate is America's largest privately owned home; set in the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina. 

The home has more than four acres of floor space (175,000 square feet), 250 rooms, 35 bedrooms and 43 bathrooms.

The Conservatory's five arches as well as the grounds are gracefully lit in the garden by

The Pergola in the garden features four highlighted busts representing the changing seasons.

The lighted relationship of the stone wall texture contrasted with the softness of the wisteria provides visual comfort as well as safety in this elegant setting.
