Apparently tennis courts, home theatres, and cavernous wine cellars aren’t enough for some people who want to flaunt their wealth by maxing out their mansions.The Los Angeles Times reports that these days, wealthy homebuyers typically want two bathrooms for every bedroom.
And these aren’t just ordinary bathrooms. Writes the LAT‘s Lauren Beale, “…with spacious tubs, floor lamps, dressing areas and seating, some bathrooms rival bedrooms in size.”
Bathrooms numbering in the double digits are not uncommon, especially in wealthy neighborhoods. In Beverly Hills, the record could be 41 bathrooms in a Bel-Air estate that was recently marketed for $40 million, according to the LAT.
So what’s the appeal of a home with multiple toilets for each family member?
For those who can afford it, an abundance of bathrooms provides convenience and privacy for both guests and residents. The presence of bathrooms in the public areas also enables homeowners to entertain without fear of guests’ sneaking a peek into the medicine cabinet.
“The idea is never to inconvenience yourself or a guest,” said agent Boyd Smith, whose turf includes Pasadena and La Cañada Flintridge. “You almost cannot have too many bathrooms.”
