Foliage season isn't the only reason to tour New England visit three of the most magnificent homes in the nation.
Far from the hubbub of city life, hidden in the New England countryside, three of America's most beautiful architectural masterpieces stand in bucolic splendor.
AMERICA'S CASTLES® travels to the oldest corner of the nation to tour the unique homes built by some of the most successful men in the nation. First up is Hillstead, built in 1901 near Farmington, Connecticut by a retired industrialist. The 35,000 square-foot manor designed by his daughter, the renowned Theodate Pope became the showcase for an art collection of Monet, Degas, Manet and Whistler. In Stockbridge, Massachusetts, Naumkeag is one of the most celebrated examples of shingle style architecture in the country. Get a privileged view of the 26-room mansion, filled with cherry, oak and mahogany paneling, ornate plastering, and a three-story, hand-carved oak staircase. Finaly, Lucknow, in Moultonborough, New Hampshire, overlooking Lake Winnepesaukee, features a stunning 360-degree view which makes the octagonal mansion one of the most unique homes in the country.
