Historically an estate comprises the houses and outbuildings and supporting farmland and woods that surround the gardens and grounds of a very large property, such as a country house or mansion.It is the modern term for a manor, but lacks the latter's now abolished jurisdictional authority.

It is an "estate" because the profits from its produce and rents are sufficient to support the household in the house at its center, formerly known as the manor house.
Thus "the estate" may refer to all other cottages and villages in the same ownership as the mansion itself, covering more than one former manor.
However, after the Great Depression and World War II, by the late 1940s and early 1950s many were demolished and subdivided, in some cases resulting in suburban villages named for the former owners, as in Baxter Estates, New York.
Today large houses on at least several acres are often referred to as "estates", in a contemporary updating of the word's usage.
