How many rooms does a mansion have?

I have plenty of wealthy family members. My Great-grandfather on my mother’s side was the first man to drill for oil in the U.S. One uncle owns an accounting firm. One uncle owns a real estate empire. I grew up in South Florida. I’ve seen many mansions. The rules have changed a bit. There was a time when a great house had to have 8–10 bedrooms minimum. However, I’ll tell you why that rule is misleading and really doesn’t mean anything anymore.

Older mansions may have 8–10 bedrooms, BUT 3–4 of those bedrooms would be live-in staff bedrooms! These are bedrooms that are typically small, placed in odd places like as part of the laundry room, and may not have bathrooms or even windows. sometimes, this part of the house might be dedicated servants’ quarters where they share a communal bathroom with multiple showers and sinks. You would NEVER put your guests in these rooms. They’re really meant for your staff.

However, in today’s world, servants don’t want to live there anymore. They want families of their own, time off, and weekends. Live-in servants are becoming less and less common. This is not to say people don’t have butlers and maids; it’s just that in today’s world, they don’t want to live at your house. Now, maids are hired by large cleaning companies that show up once a week. Robots vacuum and scrub the floors. Personal chefs and delivery services like Blue Apron have replaced Cooks. It just doesn’t make sense for NEW mansions to have the extra, small staff bedrooms. In the old days, it was common for families with money also to house their extended family members, grandparents, nieces, and nephews.

So, NOT including the staff bedrooms, how many bedrooms does a modern mansion have a minimum? Ten minus 4 or 8 minus 2 equals 6. In the contemporary world, it’s becoming widespread for newly built mega-mansions only to have six bedrooms. There’s just no need for live-in staff bedrooms. Modern money would rather have more oversized bedrooms, a game room, giant closets, or a movie theater than more useless staff bedrooms. What matters is that the house is at least 10,000–20,000 square feet and has plenty of luxurious amenities.

How many bedrooms does it take to be a mansion?

It doesn’t have to be a fixed number. Everything in life (minus math) is movable and suitable to your taste. I consider my 4-bed, 4-bath apartment a mansion. A 2-bed, 3-bath mansion. As long as you make your room feel big and comfortable, it’s a mansion.

That’s what I don’t like about language. It sets a definition for things that can’t be defined.

But, if you really need an answer, if there are more bathrooms than bedrooms, green space, and large windows, it’s a mansion.

How many bedrooms does it take to be a mansion?

To be a mansion, we need to cover an area of 8000 sqft by a single family. The number of bedrooms depends on the family’s requirements. It should be pervasive and luxurious.

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 actual 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 regular. 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 mansion today may not necessarily be limited to a single house standing alone. Still, like Roman Emperor Nero’s Domus Aurea, mansions may be compounds or a grouping of larger homes.

The Kennedy Compound is an example of a family building surrounded by large houses on a single plot. 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 indeed 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 more significant 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.

How many rooms are there on average in a modern-day mansion?

The number of rooms in a modern-day mansion can vary greatly, depending on the size and design of the house. On average, a modern-day mansion can have anywhere from 10 to 20 rooms, but some may have even more. The rooms can include bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, living rooms, dining rooms, offices, game rooms, and other specialized spaces like media rooms, gyms, or wine cellars.

The style and layout of the house also influence the number of rooms in a mansion. For example, a traditional mansion may have more rooms with specific functions, such as a separate sitting room, parlor, and library. Modern designs may opt for more open-plan living spaces and fewer individual rooms.

Ultimately, the number of rooms in a modern-day mansion depends on the needs and preferences of the owner, as well as the budget and construction limitations.

Mansions: What are some unique rooms or features that expensive homes sometimes have?

Well – the amenities of some homes do include bowling alleys/ice rinks/climbing walls/Olympic-size swimming pools/tracks – but those are just sporting amenities.

The King of Saudi Arabia has a vast room with a massive shark tank in it.

Barbara Streisand is known to have fake antique shops in her basement – to store her antiques and doll/toy collection.

Other oddball rooms I have seen in mansions include

  • a fully tiled circular Moroccan-themed room with thousands of hand-painted tiles
  • A room based on what an opium den would have looked like in the 19th century – (Basically, they bought an opium bed and designed a whole room around it)
  • A complete reproduction of the Oval Office (that was lots of fun)
  • a room that was purely to show off a massive collection of Barbie dolls
  • a room just for displaying china/silverware
  • Two-story dressing rooms the size of a house – with two rooms just for shoes/bags
  • a nightclub room – 70s style with a light-up floor – copied directly from the John Travolta movie
  • A nightclub room with stripper poles (no, there were no strippers at the time!)
  • A five-storey circular library with a terrifying iron wrought staircase that almost gives you vertigo
  • A striped room designed to be an optical illusion – it was actually the powder room, and from a certain angle, the toilet blended into the wall.
  • A powder room is made like a mini-throne room, with the toilet being on the throne. It all felt very unhygienic – like using an old commode.
  • A 50-seat cinema with popcorn machines/drinks dispensers etc.
  • a full theatrical stage
  • A three-story waterfall ( I thought it made parts of the house smell really damp)
  • a cigar-smoking room with air vents to stop the smell from going to other parts of the house
  • A glass floor and water flowing underneath that lit up at night – the water also flowed outside and became part of the swimming pool.
  • An indoor conservatory that was so huge and housed palm trees
  • A room designed to showcase stuffed animals – I called it the zombie zoo.
  • Stairs that light up, or whole walls that light up.
  • a recording studio
  • a music room with lots of instruments on display (including a substantial alpine horn and massive gong)
  • Features like music being able to be pumped into any room, fixing the lighting in any room before you get there
  • A shower room was designed like a natural waterfall.

There is an obsession with the color white – I have seen entire rooms in white – I think they look horrible and sterile and hurt the eyes – sometimes with some hideous modern painting that a three-year-old could paint. The worst was a kitchen/dining room completely white. Some interior decorator was clearly messing with them, as they had three small kids!

What are some unique rooms or features that expensive homes sometimes have?

An essential type of room found in Mansions: Security features that will protect the home’s most critical valuables and, most importantly, the homeowners themselves.

Very often, these will be of the bookcase variety:

A place to store guns, gold, artwork, essential documents, and the like.

In a mansion, the rooms and entryway sizes will be completely custom, so a lot of precision engineering needs to go into it.

But for a mansion, some passageways will also often be for fun or convenience:

What’s the most unique and interesting feature of a house you’ve ever seen? Why?

I love the houses which have lots of glass windows and small and decorative lawns.

My grandmother’s house is my favorite. She lives alone there, but she always makes her home fresh and clean. There are eight outside windows in her house, so it is very bright inside during the day. There is also a little garden where I played in my childhood. The most unique and exciting feature of that house is that its home decoration has never changed since 1980. When I feel so tired and depressed, I take a break for two days and go to meet my grandma. She is always happy when she sees me. It has been my favorite place forever.

What are some features that clearly separate a luxury home from a standard home?

A luxury home will have features that many consider to be upgrades. Generally, they will be of higher quality and utilize additional space as compared to what one would be accustomed to in a standard home. Here are some examples of luxury differences by room/area:


A pot filler plumbing fixture over the stove (below is a pot filler installed in the backsplash behind where the stove will be)

High-end appliances such as Viking

Butler’s pantries between the kitchen and dining areas

These days, granite countertops are no longer exclusive to luxury homes, but a luxury home might have a more exotic stone instead (the image below shows a kitchen island with a quartzite countertop)

Wood cabinetry or other premium material

Bathroom/Master Bath

Duel master bath water closets vs. one or none (a separate small room with the toilet)

Extra large master bath shower stalls with rain shower heads, body sprays, sauna options, and bench seating

A stand-alone centerpiece tub (as opposed to a combination tub/shower – below shows a master bath with a stand-alone tub, shower stall, and custom stone flooring. The door is to the water closet)

His and her walk-in closets are accessed through the main bathroom

High-end stone finish out

21:What is a general list of the rooms in a mansion?


Three or more car garages vs. 2

Vinyl or rubberized flooring (pictured is a three-car garage with rubberized flooring)

A mudroom entry

Living Area

High-end staircases with wood steps, iron or carved handrails, and spindles

Media rooms show up in standard homes, but a luxury home might have an elaborate setup to look like an old-fashioned theater.

Crown molding, coffered ceilings, high baseboards, natural woods vs. composite (photo shows coffered ceiling with crown molding)


Grilling areas and seating areas are as lovely as any indoor room, often with large windows/doors that can be raised to blur the indoor/outdoor line (below is an outdoor “room”)

Fencing made of materials such as brick or wrought iron, sometimes board-on-board privacy fencing


They may have high-end wood floors or other premium materials vs. carpet

Brushed nickel, oil-rubbed bronze, or other excellent material fixtures instead of chrome throughout the home

Metal, slate, or tile roofing vs. composite

Rooms will have generous space allowances, sometimes to the point of seeming wasteful, even if it’s a patio home.

Many features go into luxury homes that I’m missing, particularly at the higher end. However, these give you a general idea of some fundamental differences you should expect when searching for a luxury home vs. a standard build. I welcome additions and suggestions- I can always use some fresh ideas for our next remodel!

Has anyone ever hidden in Disneyland overnight?

In the summer of 1973, an 18-year-old man and his 10-year-old brother hid out in Disneyland Park past closing time by stowing away on Tom Sawyer Island. They then decided to swim off the island across the Rivers of America to avoid detection. The older brother pulled his younger brother along on his back through the river but grew exhausted and drowned. His brother managed to stay afloat by dog paddling and was eventually rescued by park employees, but by then, his older brother was nowhere to be seen and was found dead the following day.

Question answered: Has anyone ever hidden in Disneyland overnight?

Has anyone ever hidden in Disneyland overnight?

It’s impossible to hide in Disneyland overnight. You would be discovered almost immediately either by night employees, vendors, security or cameras. Though the park closes for visitors, the park runs 24/7. The maintenance and cleaning crews actually get started before the park closes as they have a limited time to get the park ready for the next day. Vendors come in droves to restock, security is everywhere in the park, and canaras are about every 15 feet. Yes, they are watching continuously.

Jumping fences and walls set off perimeter alarms that notify the guards immediately.

Disneyland also has a police substation on the grounds. Disney subcontracts to the Anaheim police department.

You have a .001% chance of being undetected.

Has anyone hidden in a Disney park overnight?

In 1973, two brothers hid out on Tom Sawyer’s Island past Disneyland’s closing time. They later decided to get off the island by swimming across the river. Tragically, the 18-year-old brother died in the attempt, while the 10-year-old brother stayed afloat by dog paddling until a cast member rescued him. The older brother’s body was found the following day.

Has anybody sneaked successfully into Disneyland?

I know of two people who used a thin shaving cream film transfer of the black light stamp to allow several additional people to gain re-admittance to the park successfully, but this was in 1983, before barcoded ticket media and before the current valid ticket, as well as hand stamp, was also required for re-entry.

I am sure there have been many people who have gained admission through many different means, but since they have not published how this deception was committed, we will never know.

Do people try to hide in Disneyland?

I’ve heard of people trying, but it isn’t really possible to succeed. Disneyland closes to the public at night, but they aren’t “closed”. There is a night shift that handles all kinds of maintenance and prep for the next day. The lights are on, and people are everywhere. Anyone hiding in a bathroom or Tarzan’s Treehouse would eventually get caught.

If someone hides and stays in a theme park like Disneyland after closing, can they be charged with a crime if discovered the next day before opening?

The first charge I can imagine, if Disneyland were in my home state and not in CA, is simple trespass after warning because the ticket states specific terms of the license it grants to the purchaser. Then, I think a burglary charge, “entering or remaining unlawfully on the premises of another with felonious intent,” is possible. The value of the daily ticket, I understand, is over 100 dollars, which may be over the minimum for a charge of felony theft in some states.

What do ultra-rich people have inside their houses that others don’t?

The Theravada, or ‘family home’, was a massive factor in Kerala back in the day.

Most affluent families lived in majestic homes that were either Naalukettu structures, Ettukettu structures or Pathinaarukettu structures.

Nālukettu is the traditional homestead of Tharavadu, where many generations of a matrilineal family lived. These types of buildings are typically found in the Indian state of Kerala. Traditional architecture typically consists of a rectangular structure where four blocks are joined together with a central courtyard open to the sky. The four halls on the sides are named Vadakkini (northern block), Padinjattini (western block), Kizhakkini (eastern block) and Thekkini (southern block). The architecture mainly catered to large families of the traditional Theravada, who lived under one roof and enjoyed the commonly owned facilities of the marumakkathayam homestead.

Traditionally, Nalukettu has one courtyard with four blocks/halls constructed around it in cardinal directions. However, some Nalukettus have two courtyards, which are known as Ettukettu (8 Blocked structure), as they have eight blocks in cardinal directions altogether. Some superstructures have four courtyards, which then are known as Pathinarukettu (16 blocked structures).

Here’s talking about some of the rooms that some wealthy family homes used to have in Kerala.

Birthing room

Given the fact that we had substantial joint families living under one roof, a majority of them women and that every woman had an average of about eight or more children, there was a need to have a birthing room ready at all times because it would have to be on standby all the time. The birthing room in my father’s ancestral home was painted all black. It had a corner with three mud mounds that served as a place to keep the vessel to boil water. There was a box with fresh linen and a bed made of hay. The doorway had a string of mango leaves hanging on it. Strings of mango leaves hung on the walls inside. There was also a hole for the water to be released outside after the floor was cleaned after the birth. Home births were the norm, and it helped to have a separate room for this.


21:What is a general list of the rooms in a mansion?

Or the granary. Kerala was a predominantly rural society, and rice was one of the main crops being cultivated. After the surplus grain was sent to the market, the rest would be stored in enormous wooden storerooms called pathways. This grain was used for home use and in measured quantities as daily wages to the workers who would barter the received grain for vegetables and provisions at the local grocery.

There could be more than one pathway in one house depending on the size of the produce and the number of people in the family.


This is an empty room just outside the kitchen, which used to be the main activity area of the house. We didn’t have a concept of eating at a dining table back then, and food was served on plantain leaves spread on the floor.

This area was intentionally left blank, and during mealtimes, people would file in and take their seats around the room where short-legged wooden stools called palak would be arranged. It was thus more accessible to sweep clean, clean, and purify the dining area after every meal.


These were entire wooden rooms dedicated only to storing all or grain… rice grains, to be more specific.


The pathayappura was an almost exclusively male domain in a predominantly matrilineal household. This was something like an outhouse and usually had around two or three rooms. This is where men spent their time in idle pursuits like wine, women, gambling, etc.


The firewood storage room. This was usually adjacent to the kitchen for obvious reasons. Even if they had gas ovens, many traditional Malayali households preferred to have an arrangement to have firewood ovens, too. Some of our dishes are best prepared by slow cooking, and firewood stoves facilitate this.


The smoke room. This room was used for ripening fruits like mangoes and jackfruit, which would be available in plenty during summers, and bananas, which were available throughout the year. The room would have an inlet for smoke to be let in, thereby making it a steam chamber of sorts. Fruits ripened quickly, and this was entirely necessary when large quantities of fruit had to be rapidly matured to make preserves.


The bridal room. Back in the day, weddings were held at the residence of the bride, and the wedding night was spent in a room specially earmarked for this purpose. Several generations of newlyweds would have consummated their marriage in that room, and it was seen as a promising room that ensured fertility for the couple. Most rooms opened into a common landing area except for this one. There would be a door that opens into a small corridor, and the door to the Manyara is usually to the left. The walls of the maniyara were made of wood panels. I’m guessing all this was to prevent any sounds of passion from escaping the confines of the room and disturbing the conservative mood of a house with over 30 to 40 people as its permanent residents at any given point in time. Look at the lengths people went to back then in order to get some privacy! The Manyara was also the only room with an ovary. More about that later. The maniyara in my father’s ancestral home has two iron hooks on the wall. The newlywed couple used this to hang their wedding garlands. The garlands would be left there for luck until the next couple came along and replaced the old garlands with theirs. It would suffice to say that the hooks were never empty. The bed was also exceptional, I remember. It had a silk canopy and all that. The canopy was changed at every wedding. The last time they changed it was for my cousin’s wedding in 2012.


The attic. This was a large area that spread out over the entire floor area of the house. Some trapdoors opened, and steps led to the attic. Interestingly, two trapdoors in my father’s Theravada led to the attic. One is in one corner of the house, and the other one opens into the corridor in front of the Manyara. Hmmm… 🤭


The central courtyard. It is an open courtyard that serves as the focal point of interactions between the family as well as various household activities and festivities. Depending on whether the house was a naalukettu, ettukettu, or pathinaarukettu, the number of courtyards varied from one to two or four per house. There would typically be a thulasithara in the middle of one of them.

21:What is a general list of the rooms in a mansion?


The stair-room. This is usually a closed room that has stairs to go to the upper floors.


Bathrooms. Back in the day, having a bathroom (not a toilet, mind you) inside the house was a HUGE deal. Kerala had no shortage of water bodies, and people usually went and took a bath in a pond or a nearby river. Wealthy families had their ponds. My mother’s family home had three ponds – one for the family, one for everyone else and a small one near the kitchen for washing vessels, etc. So having a bathroom inside the house screaming, ‘RICH!’


This was a bathing enclosure for the women beside the pond.


The pillared verandah that surrounds the house. This was usually the maximum limit up to which male strangers were welcome. The head of the house would meet and greet them here and send them off. Only family members were allowed inside.


The store. This is where all the pulses and other non-perishables used to be kept. Sometimes, this would double as an extension of the kitchen.

Multiple Staircases

This was very normal in large houses. Most led to upper levels, which were not connected otherwise. That is, if you were in a room on the first floor and if you wanted to go to another room on the first floor that was on the other end of the house, you’d have to climb down a flight of stairs, walk up to the flight of stairs that led to the room you want to go to, and then go up. Some houses had separate staircases for men, women and servants.

Named rooms

Depending on the direction (thekku, vadakku, kizhakku, padinjaaru), nearly all rooms had names – thekkeara, vadakkeara, kizhakkeara, padinjattara, etc.


The gate room. This could be compared to a watchman’s room of today. Some houses had more superficial structures, while some had a room at the top for the watchman to take a rest.


This was a urinal located within a bedroom that was used only for urination and for washing feet. It usually had a drain made of granite and typically didn’t have a door. Sometimes, there would be a thin muslin curtain at the entrance that barely served its purpose. We now have an explanation as to why these were a staple within maniyaras. *wink*

Kaiyyaala / Nedumpera

This was a large open shed where the family’s enormous brassware vessels were kept. It was here that feasts were prepared during festivities like weddings, birthdays, Onam, etc.


This was where rice grains were beaten and processed. Coconuts were also stored here. Actually, coconuts were stored wherever there was space – inside the kaiyyaala, kalappera, kalavara, etc.

I’m lucky I was able to write this answer and more fortunate still that I was able to see all this and live in it, too. The magnificence of my state’s cultural heritage is most certainly humbling.
