A mansion is a large and often luxurious house. It can be 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 rural manor house, the home of a feudal lord. When similarly large houses were built in cities they were called "mansions". A "country house" is a common type of mansion in England.
