want the home cinema / pool
They sort-of died away for a bit, but I can see them making a comeback as they're integrated into mechanical heat recovery ventilation systems.
A firm that I used to work for was employed by the insurers to be the clerk of works on this place: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Updown_Court
It was hideous and include heated marble driveways and paths, seven swimming pools, a bowling alley and home cinema. The swimming pools were tiled with mosaics that could only be installed by master craftsmen flown over from Italy. The potential owner (whose purchase fell through, rather acrimoniously, as various frauds were uncovered) was the brother of the Prince who owned the house on the opposite side of the road. The brothers planned to dig a tunnel, under the road, to link the two properties. It was offensive: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Et1vuhj1po
