Don’t want to downsize! Need a first floor master suite!

2 years ago

We are possibly thinking of downsizing our 16 year old, 3400 sq ft home because there is no first floor master suite to age in place in full retirement soon. Real estate in the SE part of PA is very inflated & we live our home.
~We are thinking of converting our rarely used Living & Dining room( both 14x17) into a spacious master bedroom w/walk-in closets, bathroom w/double vanities, water closet and extended shower. There is a study off of the wide foyer to convert to a mid-size dining room & a very large kitchen that flows into an 18x22ft vaulted family room w/ fireplace. It’s our families favorite gathering area when we get together. We hear there’s a market out there for 1st Floor master suites if we ever sell in the future. Move or renovate? Looking for opinions from all, especially architects & realtors would be so appreciated! ! Thank you!
