Nope, not Alhambra, but a good guess from the architecture. It IS a named building, though and its name ends in an "a". One of my favorite artists wrote a beautiful song about the house.

Victorian gothic say 1870-1890, so if it's in the USA it will be on the east coast.

You're very good - it is a famous house built by a famous man in the early part of your date range.

The man who built the house was a famous artist, and he sold one of his paintings for the highest price ever paid to a living artist, at the time. He traveled widely.

The house and grounds are maintained as a park open to the public.

You got it! Frederick Church was the most prominent artist of the Hudson River school of landscape painting, so I didn't want to mention the river that the mansion overlooks.

I've never heard of Olana. But I browsed around all the pictures of it...looks like a really nice place.

OK, I'm working on the next one...give me a minute....

That was trivial to find by searching for "Steam Clock". But I don't have the time to have a go myself, so I'll pretend I don't have the answer.
