Multiple gardens encompass the 8,000-acre, stunning historic Vanderbilt estate—but we can’t keep our eyes off the perfectly manicured lawn, with its magnificent fountain centerpiece, which paves a green road to the chateau’s entrance. Other lawns on the property accompany themed gardens and many were used for croquet and tennis matches near the house in the past.
