* The Xavier mansion in the ''Film/XMen'' movies. In ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', when the team first arrives at Charles' residence, Erik, Sean, Alex, Moira and Hank have to tilt their head back a little to stare at the impressively large Xavier mansion, which practically looks like a small palace. It's even sarcastically lampshaded by Erik: "[[SarcasmMode Charles, I don't know how you survived, living in such hardship.]]"

** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lV6Kh6MXtS4 The Xavier estate]] has never looked more beautiful on the silver screen--it's one of the most (if not ''the'' most) breathtaking, old-fashioned residences in cinema. It's practically a five-star hotel for mutants! The land around it is vast, lush and green, and one of its highlights is a stone-lined lake.

* Common in Creator/VCAndrews books, though they have more than their fair share of dark secrets.
** Foxworth Hall in ''Literature/FlowersInTheAttic'' and the majority of its sequels.
** ''Literature/MySweetAudrina'': Whitefern used to be this back when the family of the same name still had power, but by the time the story takes place it has been falling apart for years. Damian begins to have it repaired later in the book [[spoiler:after getting more money from less-than-legal stockbroking practices]].
** Farthinggale Manor in the ''Casteel'' series. Tony proudly proclaims that each generation of the Tatterton family makes an effort to improve it. However when it is revisited in ''Gates of Paradise'', it has fallen into ruin due to Tony's declining sanity.

* Canadian Governors-General are lodged at [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rideau_Hall Rideau Hall]], a superb manor in Ottawa where the GG holds receptions and diplomatic events, though the vast majority of it is working offices for various Crown functions. In contrast, the Prime Minister and provincial Primiers lived in smaller houses or condos.
** While not on the same scale, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/24_Sussex_Drive 24 Sussex Drive]], the official residence of the Prime Minster is still quite large and fancy. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stornoway_%28residence%29 Stornoway]], the home of the Leader of the Opposition, is similar.

* Canadian Governors-General (and the Canadian monarch, whenever he/she visits) are lodged at [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rideau_Hall Rideau Hall]], a superb manor in Ottawa where the GG holds receptions and diplomatic events, though the vast majority of it is working offices for various Crown functions. Another official residence is maintained at La Citadelle, in Quebec City. In some provinces, the Lieutenant Governors (who fulfill the Governor General's role at the provincial level) also have their own official residences. In contrast, the Prime Minister and provincial Primiers Premiers lived in smaller houses or condos.
** While not on the same scale, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/24_Sussex_Drive 24 Sussex Drive]], the official residence of the Prime Minster is still quite large and fancy. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stornoway_%28residence%29 Stornoway]], the home of the Leader of the Opposition, is similar.
*** Unfortunately, 24 Sussex Drive is in a severe state of disrepair, so it's being renovated. In the meantime, the Prime Minister and his family are living in [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rideau_Cottage Rideau Cottage]], a large house on the grounds of Rideau Hall.
*** Unlike official residences in some other countries, they don't contain any office space. The Prime Minister and his/her staff work out of the Langevin Block across the street from Parliament Hill, while the Opposition Leader works out of offices elsewhere in Ottawa.
** Provincial premiers aren't given official state residences, although a former Premier of Alberta attracted controversy when it was revealed she planned to build a set of suites on top of a government building near the provincial legislature (the plan was eventually abandoned).
