The “modern” luxury mansions
Luxury Mansions built during the 20th and 21st centuries usually have specially designed rooms meant to accommodate leisure activities of a particular kind. Many will have a conservatory or greenhouse, while others will have an infinity pool or a home theater. Some have all of these features. The relative importance of these specially designed rooms changes with the times: At the beginning of the 20th century no true mansion would have been built without a room to house a private library or study, while at the beginning of the 21st century the presence of a room designed for a home theater or cinema is normal. Most recently, mansions have been built with integrated domotics. Some other technology-inclined mansions may even have a bowling alley or a server room.
A modern luxury mansion today may not necessarily be limited to a single house standing alone, but like Roman Emperor Nero‘s Domus Aurea, mansions may be compounds or a grouping of larger houses. The Kennedy Compound is an example of one family building surrounded by large houses on a single plot. In general, whether a house can be called a mansion is contextual – in Manhattan or many other cities a 6,000-square-foot (560 m2) house would certainly be described as such, but a similar sized house in the Atlanta suburbs probably would not be. (See for example the Wattles Mansion, McIntire Mansions & etc.) Calling something a mansion indicates a level of grandeur/consumption considerably greater than the norm in that location, with the additional connotation of quality (c.f McMansion) and correlates highly with the housing patterns of the upper class.
