KT: “master suite”: a large bedroom and plenty of storage (walk-in closets fitted with hanging space, drawers, shoe racks, etc.) plus a full bathroom, in American parlance, which probably includes a shower (possibly quite large, maybe with two or three shower heads including a hand-held), as well as a tub (probably a jetted or whirlpool). It is likely to have extensive counters, usually of stone or marble, with two sinks and personal storage.
Let's be honest, KT. They are selling cheap subdivisions with "master suites" because they have attached one of 2 bathrooms to them. It may or may not be the only whole bath on offer. Fiberglass and linoleum are the surfaces of choice, the "big" walk in closet is what used to be the sideways closet that spanned a wall now turned lengthways with a narrow passage a few steps in. That's the great "walk-in" closet on offer, and may hold fewer clothes than the ones that fit into a wall with sliding doors.

If you still haven't room to swing a bat, and the construction is ticky-tacky, it really doesn't matter what you call it. It's doesn't become a mansion and catapult you into the upper classes. <BG> Realtors, hand-in-glove with developers, are notorious for overstatements.
