  • Mansions define opulence as well as maximize luxury and convenience at every turn.Those 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 beginning in the 21st century the presence of a room designed for a home theater is normal.  Many mansions include a bowling alley. Most recently, mansions have been built with integrated home automation.
