Morning Room I can envisage. AKA Conservatory. But Billiard Room? Maybe a Lord, but...
Anyone?

Um, yes, I do - part of the under-garage storage area.... but it was previous owner who played billiards (not me, and no table in their now either !)

I think that among the Multi-room people here an interesting percentage will have a billiard room, morning room etc.
I quite like the idea of a morning room tbh, although I don't think playing music before my first coffee has settled in would be a good idea.

Tin can telephone system.

A client I have done an install for has following access points:

Snug
Ground Floor Drawing Room
Kitchen
First Floor Drawing Room
Study
Top Floor

Each with an access point *and* a piece of Linn kit ! Stunning Georgian house tbh - but very thick walls, hence an AP in each !

I have only known one, and that was in the family estate of the Lord of Lewes. I knew his granddaughter.
But these days it would be a Games Room, or Man Cave Wink

More complicated than that. Much more.
Anyway - memories memories of the 50-50 sort.

I would quite like a games room, and if large enough I would have a snooker table to go with the dart board. And I suppose if I were feeling snobbish I would call it a billiard room.
