Designed by Richard Morris Hunt and built in 1892 for William K Vanderbilt, the younger brother of Cornelius II, the gaudy Marble House – built of many kinds of garishly colored marble – is a whorish building whose inspiration was drawn from the palace of Versailles and comes complete with custom furnishings styled after the era of Louis XIV.
