Here at Homes of the Rich, we love showcasing homes from ALL over the world. Take a look at this historic mansion located in Kashan, Iran. Dubbed Khaneh Tabatabaei-ha, the home was built in early 1880’s for the affluent Tabatabaei family. It was designed by Ustad Ali Maryam, who was a famous architect of 19th century Persia. The architecture is undeniably amazing, don’t you agree?!

    Very cool but am I the only one who thought that this would fit right in Beverly Park?

    Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous architecture. It certainly makes a statement, and lets the world know that whoever lived there was important.

    Gorgeous, but it wouldn’t fit in in Beverly Park. This is what a lot of these awkward Persian mcmansions aspire to be. They are no where near the quality or class of this. What is the history of this?

      Obviosuly the lineage and superior quality would make it overbuilt even for Beverly Park. But the rear seems to have a very contemporary feel to it, at least in terms of layout. Those carvings though – impeccable!

    KENNY, can you have someone review your site and work on the commenting section. It is getting really frustrating. And now I cannot even PM you through the CONTACT HOTR button. It just cycles me back to the home page. Gratzi

    This must be a guy thing. The beauty of this is lost on me. I found it scary and grotesque looking.

      Not just a “guy thing”.
      Nice find Kenny, a transcendent beauty. Daniel is right, parts of it does have a contemporary feel.

      I don’t like it much either. Cold and uninviting.

    Erm… I’m honestly speechless. This is one of the most beautiful buildings I’ve seen, the carvings are just brilliant. It’s certainly a break from the numerous mock-meds that I’ve seen.

    No point in comparing this to anything built in Beverly Hills. This is the real deal, built by a wealthy family in the 19th century with skilled craftsman. IT cannot be duplicated at any price for any Russian billionaire even if they tried.

    Just enjoy what fine craftsmanship, design and architecture could once get you. Simply stunning.
