Built during the late 18th century, the house is a beautiful example of Kashan's residential architecture. Other such notable houses, such as the Tabātabāei House, are located nearby.
Said to have been the property of a famous cleric, the Abbāsi house has six courtyards that would fit the needs of different families. One of the chambers has a ceiling designed with mirror pieces so as to give the impression of a starry sky under the nocturnal glitter of candlelight. Secret passageways were also built into the house, perhaps designed for the escape in times of invasion and emergencies.
The house is now a museum, and is protected by Iran's Cultural Heritage Organization.
