* The Shinra Mansion at Nibelheim in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', considered to be the largest house in the game, with 2 wings, 2 floors, and a deep underground basement. Gets further expanded in CrisisCore to have larger rooms, a huge entrance hall, wider corridors, and 2 levels of basements. Funnily enough, for a former scientist's base, the only room to contain anything actually scientific is the deepest, furthest room in the basement.

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' the first Act revolves around Hawke trying to gain enough money so he can reclaim the Amell Estate for his mother, after his deadbeat uncle; hid the Will that revealed everything was left to his ''sister'', spent the entire family inheritance on himself and then finally sold the Estate to ''slavers'' in order to cover his extensive debts. After Hawke regains the family fortune and Estate in Act II, his uncle was ''not'' allowed to live there.
** While we only see a fraction of it in game, just how big is the Estate? Its vast cellars are mentioned as extending all the way from Hightown, right through to the former mine tunnels that running beneath the city, Darktown.
