A recent trend in home design is the two master suite house plan. The allure of two master suites is appealing to a wide range of homeowners. Whether you are planning for the care of elderly parents, helping out adult children returning home, looking to split housing costs, or simply need some space from your significant other due to conflicting schedules or medical reasons, or a comfortable suite for visiting guests, there is flexibility to be found with a home that offers dual master bedrooms.

What exactly do you get with a double master house plan? It’s a design that offers more than just a larger second bedroom, but two comfortable retreats, each with walk-in closets and en-suite bathrooms.

To help you with your search, Associated Designs has compiled a collection of homes ranging in all different styles and sizes that feature two master suite floor plans.

Cottage House Plan – Ashley 30-264

The Ashley house plan makes sharing space easy. The left side of the floor plan is filled with semiformal gathering spaces. Off the foyer is the living room, filled with natural light from windows along two walls and a central fireplace. Pocket doors offer optional separation between the living room and dining, which are both open to the entry hall that travels through the center of the floor plan. French doors separate the kitchen with a breakfast nook. The right side of the design offers two master bedrooms. These each have a private bathroom and are separated by the laundry room, which connects the two-car, side entry garage. Each master suite has a private den, so if socializing isn’t desired, each suite has a secluded living space. For large families, the dens could be furnished as secondary bedrooms. The one-story floor plan makes the Ashley an ideal design consideration for those looking to age-in-place or care for aging parents. It is easy to see that the Ashley was designed to adapt to the life stage of the homeowner.

Craftsman House Plan – Brookport 30-692

The Brookport home design is filled with luxury amenities. Immediately stepping inside, you are welcomed to a grand vaulted living room with a richly windowed prow — an influence from the current a-frame and lodge-style trends. Tucked into the back of the floor plan is a main floor master suite with a large en-suite bathroom complete with a walk-in shower, soaking tub and large walk-in closet. On the second floor, a slightly more modest yet still well-appointed suite can serve as a second master bedroom. This arrangement is ideal for returning adult children, as the split of the dual masters between the two floors allows for increased privacy. The second-floor master suite has a private bathroom with a walk-in closet plus a private balcony.

Unique House Plan – San Pedro 11-049

Southwest-inspired San Pedro is a unique house plan with a hexagonal-shaped great room at its core. Ideal for view lots, the richly windowed great room has glass on three sides. At the center is a cozy fireplace. Off the great room are two wings, each filled with a master suite. The dual master suites offer private bathrooms, walk-in closets and direct access to the back patio.

One Story House Plan – Brookstone 31-066

An eye-catching Craftsman cottage, the Brookstone offers homeowners both style and comfort. Toward the front of the floor plan are two additional bedrooms, one of which is a suite and can serve as one of the two master suites. The other bedroom provides flexibility to either serve as the third bedroom or provide a private den/living room for the first suite. Toward the back of the home, the floor plan opens up to a great room. The dining and kitchen are only separated by an island. The great room is pleasantly bright from the rich display of windows along with the cozy fireplace. Off the dining room, a hallway leads to the utility room plus the second owners’ suite. Each suite offers a walk-in closet and a private bathroom. The layout of Brookstone’s one-story floor plan is ideal for families that may be caring for aging parents or helping adult children.

Modern Hillside House Plan – Edgefield 31-131

Sleek shed roofs create interesting angles and add to the curb appeal of the Edgefield house plan. The flexibility offered in this open floor plan makes the Edgefield a great design for those looking for multiple suites. The main floor offers two suites. The one toward the front of the home is slightly smaller but offers a vaulted ceiling, walk-in closet and private bathroom. Toward the back of the floor plan, you find the vaulted great room, where living, dining and kitchen are all open to each other. The informal gathering space is comfortable and can be opened to the back-covered deck through two sets of sliding glass doors. The owners’ suite found at the back of the main floor is a little larger and offers a slightly more luxurious bathroom with a walk-in shower and dual vanities. Depending on the situation the floor plan can be divided between floors. The lower walk-out basement level has a full family room with a kitchenette plus two additional bedrooms, one of which has a walk-in closet and private bathroom, giving the Edgefield its third master suite. There is direct access to the lower level from the covered patio, and with a door blocking the stairs to the main level, this portion of the home can feel separated from the living above.
