The mansion had been the residence of British aristocrats for generations, but is burned down as a consequence of the fight between Jonathan Joestar and Dio.
The Joestar Mansion is a three-story building made out of bricks in typical Victorian fashion, resembling manors in the Queen Anne style. It is flanked by two lesser buildings of unknown use. The residence is surrounded by a brick wall. The main entrance is led up to by parallel sets of stairs. The doors open to a great hall with a recognizable chessboard-pattern tiling from which one set of stairs leads to the upper levels. The rooms include a bedroom for each resident, a dining room and a library.
The mansion is luxuriously decorated with carpets and sets of weapons and suits of armor. Its most distinctive decoration is a Statue of the Goddess of Love in the main hall, which served to impale Dio and imprison him in the burning mansion. The anime added a fountain to the exterior. An incinerator is situated in the back of the mansion, which was notoriously exploited by Dio to kill Jonathan's dog, Danny.
After Dio rejects his humanity, Jonathan sets fire to the Joestar Mansion, burning it to the ground in the hopes that it would kill the vampire.
