Master Bedroom Suite without Windows?

3 Replies

Hey everybody! Considering putting an offer on a 3 bed/1 bath because we want to add a bathroom to make a master suite. However, the current "master bedroom" is in the middle of the house. No windows. The way we are trying to reconfigure it ends up with still no windows in the master bedroom. Has anyone come across a master suite with no windows? I'm just thinking not many people would be okay with such a nice master suite but no windows. I feel like it will lower the price considerably even in a neighborhood that needs more 2 baths. Thank you for any responses I get. I value yall's opinions and experience greatly :)

It might not meet minimum standards for lending if it doesn't have windows. There is a safety concern in the event of a fire.

 

@Jamie Hailey See how much it would cost to just add a window to the room. Look for deals on craigslist or special order returns of large windows at home depot and throw the biggest size you find in there. Installation will cost about the same whether it's a small or large window.
