For many “space-challenged” families, even the thought seems inconceivable:  a home with too many bedrooms!

How can such a thing be possible?


Exhibit A:  a two-story home with a 900 square foot foundation — and four (or five!) bedrooms on the upper level.

When you see such a configuration, you know that:  1) the bedrooms are all small; 2) the floor plan is cramped and claustrophobic; or 3) both #1 and #2 (by far the most likely choice).

So, what’s the opposite of a home with too many bedrooms?

Yup, a home with too few.

Examples would be any home with more than 3,500 finished square feet and three (or even two!) bedrooms.

As you might expect, such homes are are almost always unusually open and spacious — and typically have king-sized owners’ suites.
