Q:

How many square feet are in a mansion?

A:

Quick Answer

While there is no one definition of mansions by size, a good rule of thumb is 5,000 square feet. The square footage varies by area, as a 5,000-square-foot house in Manhattan is considered a mansion, but in some suburbs it's not. Normally, mansions indicate greater grandeur than the norm.
