Just off the master is a nice nook that could be used as an office, reading room, nursery space or a yoga/meditation room. The other two bedrooms are on the opposite side of the home from the master. If you want to get a better sense of the floor plan and the interior, you can take a 3d tour of the house. It is the next best thing to seeing the home in person.
