Common Characteristics and Features of the Mansion
One common characteristic of mansions is their size. They’re big. Just how big a luxury house has to be to be called a mansion depends on the market. In Los Angeles, the luxury market is so hot buyers don't consider anything smaller than 20,000 square feet a mansion. In other parts of the country, such as Atlanta, anything over 5,000 square feet is called a mansion, if it is luxurious enough.
Luxury is the Key
Size is important, but luxury is key. Watch for:
- Entertainment areas like ballrooms, billiard rooms, and specialty lounges.
- Elaborate games rooms.
- Huge great rooms.
- Built-in bar areas.
- A pool and pool house.
- Extra kitchens for catering to guests.
- Spa facilities.
- A home theater or high-tech media rooms.

- Even a safe room like in the movies.
- Zen or formal gardens.
- Sports facilities like tennis courts and hiking trails.
- Water features like ponds, fountains, and waterfalls.

- Guesthouses on the property.
Mansions are built with the finest custom craftsmanship. Top-of-the-line appliances, elaborate systems for security, and smart home connections are all part of the mansion experience.
Benefits of Mansions
All the luxurious amenities make for the “lifestyles of the rich and famous”. The reality is, there is no definitive definition regarding what is a mansion and what isn’t. The biggest house on any street could be called a mansion, by someone.
Those who live luxurious lifestyles know. There may be no consensus among the experts, but there certainly is among mansion dwellers. When you live in a mansion, you know it. If you look for one, you find it. Maybe “a large, impressive home of wealthy people” is all we need to know.
