Can’t buy me…Taste

A classic example of poor taste, despite abundant resources, is the sprawling pile that is Bill Gates’ house.

• Plot size: 5 acres
• Total sq. ft.: 66,000

Wright’s popularity is well-known; but Richard Morris Hunt, famed designer and architect of Biltmore, Wright could never be.
