Summary:
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.
