Bit bored with survival bases and want a luxurious Minecraft mansion instead? Then we have a list for you. We've collected the best Minecraft mansion tutorials, maps, and downloads that will give you that spark of creativity to make that opulent upgrade. 

If you've already mastered how to build a house in Minecraft you've already got the building basics down, so expanding or moving your base of operations to something a little more grandeur shouldn't feel like such a huge undertaking. So, if you're ready to take your next step on the property ladder, this list of Minecraft mansions is sure to have something that inspires you. Of course, if you want to jump straight to the top rung, the best Minecraft castle ideas may be a more majestic alternative.

If you've got your heart set on a mansion, however, it's likely that even our collection of Minecraft house ideas won't sway you from your goal. Luckily, you'll find a list of the best Minecraft mansions below, which includes modern marvels, cliffside constructions, and everything in between.

Large Oak Survival Base

If a Minecraft survival mansion was built to keep out the elements, this Large Oak Survival Base was built to keep out the apocalypse. It comes with what are essentially four symmetrical houses on each corner, protected by thick oak walls around the outside. In the center, it even has space for a garden. This one has a gorgeous architectural appeal and will keep absolutely everything out with its mighty oak barriers.

This is a great property if you find yourself battling against the elements. This survival mansion is elevated to help protect it against the various nasties that could come and destroy it: be it strong winds, rain, or zombies. Survival Mansion has also got a wealth of different materials and storage potential; it's both pretty and practical for budding architects. 

Modern Mansion

Akila Gaming's modern Minecraft mansion is a spectacular sight. This tutorial might an hour-long, but the results are truly impressive, and not only will you have a gorgeous villa but an entire interior full of furniture and decorations. It's so plush, it's almost overwhelming, but Akila's tutorial is easy to follow with timestamps, blueprints, and a resource list to help you through.

Contemporary Mansion

For when living in luxury just gets all too much, this place has a sauna, bowling alley, and an indoor pool so you can take a well-deserved break. In the spacious Contemporary Mansion there are enough rooms to make anybody angry about the state of the housing market. Why can't we all have a place like this? Is that really too much to ask? 

Medieval Mansion

What these mansions have been missing is a Tower of Babel feel. They might all make you comfortable and protect you, but they don’t leave you with the feeling of superiority which comes from having a mansion built to the heavens. Enter Medieval Mansion. It stands head and shoulders - or roof and chimney - above its peers, and is a must have for anyone harboring dreams of world domination. 

Wentworth Mansion

Look at the size of this absolute, err, 'unit'. This lakeside place is surrounded by incredible views all around, especially with the right Minecraft texture packs. Not only is Wentworth Mansion huge, but you get your very own swimming pool in which to relax, too. It feels especially decadent since there's not exactly a shortage of the wet stuff in the vicinity. It's a bit much but, hey, that's the whole point of mansions. 

Modern Mountain House

This is probably the most chill of the mansions in Minecraft on this list. Well, chill if you can deal with the mild terror that comes from looking outside from this cliffside dwelling and seeing nothing but the gaping abyss. 

Vertigo-induced nausea aside, the design of the Modern Mountain House is wonderfully modern (as you’d expect, given the name), with a trendy spiral staircase and large, airy windows. There's lots of storage and a big kitchen, too, giving you everything you need for a comfortable digital life. 

Cliffside Wooden Mansion

The Cliffside Wooden Mansion not only boasts a great view, but it's also well situated for mountainside mining. The smaller buildings on either side are a great touch, though: there is one right next to the mansion itself, which is great for storage or having guests in your world, but the one on the lake is especially picturesque. 

Redstone Hotel

Hey, you. You know how your favorite movie is The Grand Budapest Hotel? Wait, what do you mean you’ve never seen it? The whole sales pitch I had planned revolved around that movie. 

Anyway, Redstone Hotel is a mansion designed like an art nouveau hotel, and even features a working keycard system and three different standards of room, from cheap digs to luxury penthouse suites. For anyone seeking something more refined and classic, yet still highly function, your stay at the Redstone Hotel awaits.
