Status: de facto

The tag historic=manor may be used for country houses once used as a  manor house or  mansion or as the home of gentry/landowners.


There may sometimes be problems distinguishing between manors, castles, and stately homes. The manor tag is intended for representative buildings that are or were once the administrative center of a large agricultural estate. Buildings not meeting this criteria should not be tagged as historic=manor.

How to map

Draw an area along the outline of the building. If that is infeasible, set a node at the center of the building.

Add the tag historic=manor and name=*.
