Don't take this spa for granite

A massive slab of blue-veined granite, with its edge left raw, sets the stage for this Old World retreat. Furniture-style vanities, chandeliers and sconces coupled with a glassed-in shower with his-and-her doors elevate this bath to spa status.

Intimate apparel

Even at 400-square-feet, this master bathroom feels intimate. Aside from the decadent multi-feature shower, not shown, and two-person whirlpool with fireplace, luxury means ample counter space for beauty treatments and a place to display art.
