Get on top of the rise in multigenerational households. These four designs each feature a second master suite that’s ready for in-laws, an elderly parent, or a boomerang kid. We’re talking more than just a guest room with a bath—these are large bedrooms with walk-in closets, separate tubs and showers, and other amenities that make extended family feel at home. 

Upstairs, Downstairs

Not only does the main-level master suite boast all the amenities of its upstairs counterpart, but it even has a nearby study that could become a semi-private sitting room. The kitchen’s undoubtedly the heart of this charming home, with a built-in booth adding cozy seating not far from the open dining room. Three secondary bedrooms occupy the second level, along with a bright loft. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Elevated Living

An elevator leads down to the finished lower level of this beautiful home, where a second master suite awaits. There’s also a rec room and a flexible space that leads to the back porch, granting privacy to a live-in relative or an older child. In the main living areas upstairs, the kitchen opens to the great room and dining area. A split-bedroom layout puts the master suite on the left and two secondary bedrooms to the far right.

Private Outdoor Living

Each of the two master suites in this plan enjoys its own adjoining outdoor living area. On the main level, the big bedroom opens up to a patio, while the suite upstairs boasts a private balcony. Three more bedrooms provide plenty of room for family, along with the vaulted great room, pocket office, and open kitchen. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Special Touches

A cozy fireplace adds extra appeal to the first-floor master suite in this country home. Another fireplace, this one a two-way model, warms the family room and breakfast nook. Upstairs, a second master suite—or a pair of smaller bedrooms, if you prefer—sits down the hall from two secondary bedrooms. A bonus space above the garage offers flexible room to expand.
