The Master Retreat

Welcome to the master bedroom and bath at the Bryan-Wells House. As we mentioned in our last post, we turned an adjacent bedroom into the en-suite bathroom. We walled-off that bedroom’s door from the hall . And, we busted open the closet wall in the master bedroom to create the entry into the new bathroom.

See the closet which is now the entry into the master bath.

Jennifer and I spent a ton of time working on this bathroom layout. Here, you’ll see the wall to the left is now part of the closet. A new wall was created to create the closet and line the vanities.

The vanities and shower floor and walls feature Italian Carrera marble…just like the other two bathrooms.

The square area between these two windows was the perfect area for a walk-in shower.


We kept the fireplace in the bathroom. There are six fireplaces in this house, four with tile downstairs and two less-formal upstairs. They were all coal burning and very shallow. Today, they are non-working and sealed off, but the future homeowners may want to bring one or more fireplaces back to life. Having this fireplace in the bathroom brings character and romance to the room…a good spot for some candles.

The closet door was removed and the wall was enclosed. The closet was turned into the laundry closet accessible from the hallway. And, as mentioned before, that bedroom door was enclosed. The entrance to the walk-in closet is now to the right of the fireplace.


The custom-built closet wraps around three sides.



Tomorrow, we’ll walk around outside.
