Fallingwater, most famous private residence in the world

No, it’s just that there aren’t as many private homes that are architectural marvels in Europe. The reason is Europe’s much longer history of human occupation. People have been building homes in Europe for two thousand years. Most people were peasants living in hovels or urban housing structures. Most of the urban structures remain, and are the foundation of almost all of Europe’s major cities and small villages. Large scale mansions and estates, however, were built almost exclusively by royalty, as wealth and title were intricately connected throughout European history. And so, most of the extremely large and beautiful homes in Europe are palaces or government owned; especially anything built before the 19th century. Like Windsor Castle, or any of the great French Chateaux. Compound that with the fact that there really isn’t a lot of room for modern construction.

America, by contrast, has never had royalty. But we have had many extremely wealthy private citizens. They’ve built thousands of large scale homes and estates, to a scale only touched by royalty in Europe. So, there are more examples to chose from in America when it comes to great *private* residences.
