For whatever reason I could not find a world where a cartographer gave me a map to a structure nearby- nonetheless, I got the achievement after about an hour of walking.

I looked up seeds for villages in v. 1.2.0. and found 2129169517. There are three villages just next to the spawn, the first of which has 6 diamonds. The desert village has a cartographer. What I did was I ran around the world and found a bunch of sugar cane to turn into paper. I traded the paper with him once, then waited for him to level up once. I repeated this process twice more to get him to tier four. This is when he sells the woodland treasure map. For me I needed 16 emeralds and a compass. I had a diamond pickaxe from the first village, so the mining materials was quick. There being 3 villages, I was able to trade various items with a lot of villagers to get 16 emeralds, such as coal, wheat, leather, and raw porkchop. Then I bought the map.

I needed to go southwest to get there. However, It was only one map west, so I basically only had to go south. Like I said, this took me an hour of running/boating. When I finally got to the mansion, it crashed. I had to re-walk another 15 minutes before getting there again. This time, I ran around the mansion with my map in hand for about a full minute before the achievement finally unlocked.

If anyone finds a seed where you can do this achievement in less time, comment the seed number and the time it took you and I will update the guide!
