Dual Master Suites – the Key to a Happy Marriage?

What says luxury more than a sumptuous master bedroom with a cozy fireplace and sitting area, an ensuite bathroom with steam showers and his-and-hers sinks as well as separate walk-in closets?  How about two master bedrooms?

This latest trend is on the rise with luxury home buyers.  It was the subject of Amy Gamerman’s recent article, “The Secret to a Happy Marriage? Two Master Bedrooms” in the Wall Street Journal.

If you like the option of having two equally luxurious bedroom suites, take a look at 260 Bay View.  It’s a spectacular home which features “twin masters” on the second floor.  Both of the gorgeous bedrooms have glittering bay views, walk-in closets, a shared kitchenette,  and a truly spectacular master bath including a free-standing tile steam shower with water views.

In the United Kingdom, “his-and-her” bedrooms have been an upper-class tradition. Could this be the secret to Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip’s long-lasting relationship?  Whether this is the key to a happy marriage or not, the demand for two masters is growing.  The Washington Post reports that these “snoring rooms” are the new luxury home craze. What’s your opinion of this growing trend:  hot or not?
