In suburban Philadelphia, dream bathrooms for maximum singing in the shower

The soaking tub and shower at 6 Horseshoe Lane in Paoli.

Sometimes the best remedy to a truly bad day is locking yourself in a bathroom, turning on the hot water, and soaking away the memory of the preceding hours. This solution works a lot better when you’ve got room to unwind. These million-dollar bathrooms would have you letting off some steam in a generously sized room from the cozy environs of a soaking tub or a frameless shower big enough to fit your living room sofa.

1300 Eagle Rd., New Hope 
Monthly taxes: $6,375 
Tell me all about it: This Upper Makefield Township home is like dying and finding yourself in spa-bath Valhalla. There’s a cozy — but enormous — bath with old-fashioned soaking tub and a giant glass shower. There’s a more modern version of the same (shower stall beside a soaking tub in a sea of marble) elsewhere in the five-bedroom home. In all, there are four full bathrooms and two powder rooms. We’d settle for just those two alone.

6 Horseshoe Lane, Paoli 
Monthly taxes: $1,469 
Tell me all about it: It’s almost unfair to single out the bathrooms as the standout feature in this 7,100-square-foot Paoli home. There are six full baths here (one for each of the five bedrooms), which feature beautiful vanities, dual sinks and, of course, perfectly fashioned soaking tubs, separate showers, and heated floors. But the home also boasts an amazing private theater, a bar, and an outdoor entertainment center including built-in BBQ, outdoor fireplace and a heated pool with hot tub.

6137 Greenhill Rd., New Hope 
Monthly taxes: $4,428  
Tell me all about it: Listing photos can be deceiving, but from the looks of it, you could park a car inside the en-suite master bath in this 11,000-square-foot home. The property includes five full bathrooms (which, of course, include massive showers and soaking tubs) and two powder rooms. Outside is a heated saltwater pool and cabana alongside basketball courts and a batting cage. Plus, we’re always a sucker for a private library this cool.
