I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'splendid residence' is the definition.
'palace' can be an answer for 'residence' (palace is a kind of residence). I am not certain of the 'splendid' bit.

'area within location' is the wordplay.
'area' becomes 'a' (maths abbreviation).

'a' placed within 'place' is 'PALACE'.

'for' acts as a link.
