From the stunning Georgian Revival Pebble Hill to the Arts and Crafts quirkiness of the Gamble, explore the mansions that are regarded as the finest of their kind ever built.
America's Castles® explores three classic homes that define the nation's most popular and recognizable architectural styles.
On 3,000 acres dotted with distinguished out-buildings, Pebble Hill is the ultimate Georgian Revival plantation home. Designed by President Garfield's son, it features one of the first elevators in a private home, and has hosted the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and Presidents Eisenhower and Carter.
Proctor & Gamble owner David Gamble was determined to make his home the most innovative, unique and daring of the time. A visit to the Gamble shows he succeeded. With its exquisite inlays, extensive built-in furniture and gorgeous rare woods, it is a masterpiece of craftsmanship, a showcase of the Arts and Crafts movement.
Modeled on a luxury hotel, the Victoria is a classic of the Italianate Villa style. Go inside the Maine masterpiece to see the extensive frescoes and original carpeting that were essential to the overall design.
