In 1919, media tycoon William Randolph Hearst commissioned architect Julia Morgan to design a home atop the 270,000 acres (1,093 square kilometers) of property he owned in the hills of San Simeon, California. Over the next 28 years, Morgan created one of the most ambitious architectural projects in American history: Hearst Castle. The home contains over 160 rooms and boasts tennis courts, a movie theater, an airfield and 127 acres (.5 square kilometers) of gardens. Most iconic, however, are the property's two ornate pools—one indoor and one outdoor—that Morgan designed with Hearst's love of Roman antiquity in mind. The outdoor Neptune Pool features a façade from an actual Italian temple, and the expansive indoor Roman Pool is decorated with a floor-to-ceiling mosaic made of glass and fused-gold tiles.
