Mansion Rentals – Uptown
A mansion is a large dwelling house. Calling something a mansion indicates a level of grandeur/consumption considerably greater than the norm in that location, with the additional connotation of quality and correlates highly with the housing patterns of the upper class. The word itself derives through Old French from the Latin word mansio “dwelling”, an abstract noun derived from the verb manere “to dwell”. The English word “manse” originally defined a property large enough for the parish priest to maintain himself, but a mansion is no longer self-sustaining in this way (compare a Roman or medieval villa). ‘Manor’ comes from the same root—territorial holdings granted to a lord who would remain there—hence it is easy to see how the word ‘Mansion’ came to have its meaning.
Mansions have been a staple of wealth since Rome. Only recently have mansion rentals become popular due to the desire to live a dream vacation. Renting mansions in Uptown allow normal people to live the luxurious lives they deserve. Mansions were built to show the wealth and prosperity of those who live in it.
The typical modern mansion rentals 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 home automation. 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, but like Roman Emperor Nero’s Domus Aurea, mansions may be compounds or a grouping of larger houses. A mansion rental of a mansion of this size is recommended for a larger group of people.
