We recently moved here and have been looking to buy a house for several months. Am I the only person alive who HATES the split plan. We are renting one now and my 7 year old can't stand to be all the way over on the other side of the house.

I just need to know that I am not alone!!!!. Thanks, needed to vent!

How does this relate to Tampa, Florida or this forum?

I love my split floor plan. If I had a newborn baby I might not want my child to sleep so far away from me, but why is a 7 year old complaining? And how many square feet is the house?

You could always stay in the bedroom next to your 7 year old and use the master for something else.

Personally I like a split plan. It keeps the "master" private, as it should be.

I like the split plan because it keeps the master bedroom apart from the other bedrooms. I like the privacy this affords my DH and I. It was great while we were raising our kids and I anticipate that it'll work well when we use those rooms as guest rooms in the future.

Almost everyone loves a "split plan." And they certainly aren't unique to Florida!

After living in a ranch home for 17 years, we love our split plan. 2 bedrooms have their own bathroom on the other side of the house from the master bedroom/bath. Great when we have overnight guests.

We just signed a 1 year lease for one and my daughter will be in the far room (5) and she has her own full bathroom. The full bathroom is gonna be very new. I like it but I am also a little nervous about it.

Wow, thanks everyone for your input. I am really surprised to see so many like it but this is good to know as we want to make a wise investment for resale someday. My agent keeps telling me people like it but it is nice to hear some unbiased comments. As a new resident of this area and future homeowner here, I am happy to have this forum to discuss relevant Tampa real estate issues!

I thought it was unique to this area. Although the homes in South Florida are one story, the floor plans are totally different. Of course, in Northern Virgina, you dont see it all. Perhaps it has more to do with the WHEN the homes were built (70s-90s mostly)

Anyway, thanks for your replies. We are looking for a traditional floor plan but I guess we will have to warm up to the idea. I guess when my son is 13, we'll be glad to be on the other side of the house LOL!
