The Breakers, a famous mansion from Newport, Rhode Island

A mansion is a large house. It is big enough for an owner, his family, and their many servants. One of the definitions is a large, imposing house. It was originally the same as a manor house but when similarly large houses were built in cities they came to be called "mansions". A "country house" is a common type of mansion in England.
