Should I build ensuite for every bedroom VS guest bathroom?

last modified: 3 years ago

I am renovating a 4 bedroom house (with a swimming pool. this is relevant)

3 of the bedrooms have ensuite's and the 4th bedroom is currently being built.

I have the option to have the 4th bedroom with either an ensuite, or to build the bathroom separately next to it (which would be located directly opposite the guest powder room).

In terms of resale do you think a 4 bedroom all ensuite house is better than 3 bedroom with ensuite, and 1 bedroom with separate bathroom?

The pool is located not far from the 4th bedroom, so the only benefit of having a separate bathroom, could be for guests to use, which would be infrequent but still offers flexibility. But we already an outdoor shower and a toilet access from the swimming pool. Is it important to have a full guest bathroom inside the house? Or better to have all ensuite?
