Visit the castles, mansions and legendary homes of America’s wealthiest tycoons.
Travel from the Astor’s stately homes of Beechwood and Cliveden to the English countryside to admire the castle shared by the stormy marriage of Consuelo Vanderbilt and the Duke of Marlborough. The British Isles are also home to Skibo, the glorious Highland Castle that steel tycoon Andrew Carnegie called "heaven on earth." Carnegie entertained Rudyard Kipling, King Edward VII, and the Rockefellers on Skibo's beautiful 7,000 acres.
Back in the U.S. America's richest elite built their summer getaway retreats in Newport, Rhode Island. Among the featured homes we tour are: The Chateau Sur Mer, a home of unusual design, and the homes of two Vanderbilt brothers, Cornelius Vanderbilt II's The Breakers, and William Kissam Vanderbilt's Marble House.
