The Tabātabāei House (Persian: خانهٔ طباطبایی‌ها‎, translit. Khāneh-ye Tabātabāeihā) is a historic house in Kashan, Iran. It was built in the early 1880s[1] for the affluent Tabatabaei family.

It consists of four courtyards, wall paintings, elegant stained glass windows, and other classic features of traditional Persian residential architecture, such as biruni (the public, common area) and andaruni (the private/women's quarters).

It was designed by Ustad Ali Maryam, architect of the Borujerdi House and the Aminoddole Carvansarai of the Bazaar of Kashan.

The house covers nearly 5,000 square meters and has been renovated. The interior yards have gardens. The building has 40 rooms, 4 courtyards, 4 basements, and 3 wind towers.
