This year’s Design Home is designed with five full bathrooms and two powder rooms spread across six levels. Each of the five bedrooms in the house has a dedicated bathroom, 4 of them are in suite while one allows secondary access from a hallway for use by the media room occupants. Two powder rooms, one on the main living area level (2) and one on top roof level (6) are the ones primarily used by guests and when entertaining either indoors or outdoors.
Each of these spaces has their own personality. The lower level guest bedroom/media room bathroom has a steam shower and is more spa like for use by family members with its darker glass mosaic tile. Since the lower level bedroom could be a gym, office, guest room or den with pullout sofa, the spa bath lends itself to a variety of uses.
The first floor bathroom is for primary use of the bedroom or study located on that floor and when entering or exiting the home since this is the level with front and back egress. This bathroom is off-white and neutral so that it may serve well regardless of the function the homeowner decides the first floor bedroom/study will serve.
The main entertaining level powder room is dark and dramatic, this is primarily for entertaining, and what it lacks in size, being the smallest of all the bathrooms, it makes up for in drama.
The master bathroom is the most luxurious with fully clad marble walls everywhere, a large shower, a soaking tub, a separate toilet compartment and incredible views makes this small footprint master bathroom by McMansion comparison feel specious and luxurious.
The main children’s level has two bathrooms, one for a boy’s room and one for a girl’s room. These in suite bathroom’s styles are reflective of the kids’ spaces.
The top level is the pilot house which is the entrance and exit to the massive roof deck and this has a powder room which feels a bit more resort like than Society Hill. It serves as the powder room for outdoor entertaining while cooking on the roof deck or sitting in the plunge pool.
We hope you enjoy all seven of these spaces and appreciate their unique personalities.
