According to a recent Wall Street Journal article, the latest trend in high-end homes is the all-inclusive luxury master suite; a space that now includes such amenities as private pools, kitchenettes, gyms, espresso bars, and even salons. Many of these bedrooms are becoming locations for small-scale entertaining, and as multigenerational housing continues to rise, more evidence is gathered to support the demand for these personal ‘apartments.’

Jeff Franklin, best known as the creator of ‘Full House,’ recently placed his Los Angeles home on the market, the third floor of which boasts a roughly 2,500-square-foot master suite from its convenient perch that offers the very best views of the city. The space, encased by glass walls, has two fireplaces, an espresso bar, a terrace with a fire-pit, and an indoor/outdoor shower that overlooks downtown.  

Jeff’s listing agent, Brendan Fitzpatrick of The Agency says that master bedrooms often rank in the top two or three things buyers consider when purchasing a home. “It’s the first place you end up in your home in the morning and the last place you end up in the evening,” he says. The sweeping, all-inclusive suites offer a getaway for homeowners, putting a new twist on the term ‘Staycation.’
