It’s like we’ve gone back to medieval times when massive castles were built by nobility given the size of some of today’s mega mansions. In fact, today’s homes are just as ostentatious as the gilded age mansions built in Newport, Rhode Island, the Gold Coast and other incredible historic mansions.
Except for these days, the mega-mansions aren’t designed to protect and provide for entire villages. Today’s mega mansions are built for one or two families.
20,000+ square feet for a private residence is an insane amount of space, yet there are many of these homes located all over the world.
This post features photo galleries of today’s mega mansions.
For a home to be featured here, it must contain at least 20,000 sq. ft. Some have more than 50,000 sq. ft. While I have no desire to live in such a large home, I must say some of the interior designs and outdoor amenities are really awesome.
Check them out.

I love modern, spacious mansions like this 20,000 square foot beauty in the Trousdale area of Beverly Hills, CA. This home was listed with Home Bay (among many other real estate sites). It features two pools, two kitchens, bedrooms like you’ve never seen before, a home gym and a view that doesn’t quit. As you can see, much of the house is glass so you can enjoy the view from many rooms of the home.
