We believe that the most lavish, beautiful pieces of your home should be the ones you frequent the most. While external sparkle and grandeur may impress your guests and neighbors, the true essence of luxury lies in the everyday eye of the homeowner. After all...what’s the use in showing off your plush designer furniture or grand staircase if your most-oft used corners of the house are ignored?
Perhaps the best example of such a place is your master bath. Tucked away in the master suite, this private space is the hidden gem of your home… a sort of solace that asks you to relax and to take off the stresses of the day along with your tie and makeup. Considering you begin and end each and every day in your master bathroom…shouldn’t it inspire you? Below, we’ve found several spa-worthy San Antonio retreats that combine stunning details with the ultimate functionality.
1. Classic Luxury Retreat
This enormous master suite (complete with private reading area) was practically built for relaxation and reflection. The attached spacious master bath proves no exception, boasting a separate double vanity, yawning shower, and drop-in Whirlpool tub. Besides these classic functional features, the space offers an elegant, natural aesthetic: the marble tile and stone-inlaid fireplace are complemented artfully by a statement chandelier.
2. Contemporary Vibes
Located in North San Antonio, this home’s only self-proclaimed flaw is that it “pays too much attention to detail”! Even the smallest touches in this 2016 Parade Home have been artfully customized to exude luxury. The master bath’s unique layout features huge windows (welcoming in that ever-coveted natural light), a modern standalone tub, spacious shower, art nooks, bluff views, and a whimsical mosaic backsplash.
3. Italian Marble Suite
2302 Winding Vw
Reminiscent of a luxury Italian getaway, this opulent master suite includes a fireplace and dual floating vanities. The spa-like layout is centered around a gorgeous drop-in tub and also includes a generously sized walk-in shower.
4. Romantic Spa Getaway
Almost more work of art than bathroom, this gorgeous master bath makes a statement. The clean, white finishes feature handsome marble and granite finishes, dramatic crystal chandeliers, and unique ceiling treatments. Residents have their choice of the Whirlpool tub or separate luxury shower.
5. Modern Refuge
8 Arnold Palmer
No matter how stressful your day has been, stepping into this soothing contemporary masterpiece is sure to draw a deep, cleansing breath. Complete with glorious views high above The Dominion, the modern features of 8 Arnold Palmer’s master suite give off a truly sleek, designer feel. The unique functional features (tub and separate shower, specialized vanity, and custom cabinets) are offset by unique aesthetic details (ceiling design, marble finishes, and art nooks).
6. Dreamy Custom Sanctuary
2 Via Aragon
This award-winning custom estate (created by Adam Wilson) embraces the trending, minimalist side of luxury. The beautifully-designed master en-suite includes extensive natural light, elegant lines, and a spa-like atmosphere. Simple furniture and the chromatic palette create a fresh and relaxing feel, complete with modern stand-alone tub, separate shower, and designated vanity area.
7. Whimsy Luxury
Sophisticated and luxurious as always, this gem of a master suite is located in the ever-coveted Dominion neighborhood. Throughout the home, award-winning architecture is clearly on display, and the master bath is no exception. Described as “divine” and giving off an almost whimsical sense of luxury, the en-suite also has an air of easy elegance, featuring separate vanities, closets, a luxurious soaking tub, and walk-in glass shower.
8. Resort-Style Relaxation
Not to be outdone, this exquisite estate is absolutely unparalleled in luxury. An expansive two-home compound, 14 Duxbury Park is composed of six bedrooms, eleven bathrooms, and over 25,000 square feet! The dual master baths are the crown jewel of resort-style living. Marble floors, gorgeous archways, spacious hallways and closets, and plenty of luxury details make up this beautiful master bath experience.
9. The Ultimate Shower Experience
Containing perhaps the most specialized master bath on our list, the Mulberry Ave property was built in 1928 and retains all the old-world opulence of the roaring ‘20s. Though the only master suite that doesn’t feature a tub, the details in the stunning rain shower (pictured above) are more than sufficient for a complete spa experience. The full bath features custom cabinetry, master closet, and separate vanity.
It was Jane Austen who stated so eloquently: “Ah! There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.” We believe this statement captures the very essence of luxury living. The comforts of your home should be the pinnacle of rest and relaxation. After all...why visit a spa when you can bask in your very own claw-foot jet-stream tub? The space where you prepare for and reflect on your day should serve as nothing less than an opulent, inspiring retreat.
