Bedroom off Master Bedroom
I was wondering if I could get some advice. I am creating a plan for a future home. Although I do not have a family, I am creating the plan for the future when I will. The home is quite large with three stories and bedrooms dispersed throughout the home. Right now, there is a bit of distance between the Master bedroom and another bedroom. The second bedroom is adjacent to the master bath, towards the rear of the home. Has anyone ever put a door from the master bedroom or bathroom to a second bedroom? I am thinking it could be great for a nursery. It would cut down walking from the master to the other bedroom in half and make it quieter for others when taking a baby between the two rooms. I am thinking it could be locked once the child is older and could still be useful if I ever have a special needs child, babysit, or someday have grandkids. I have attached a picture that shows the floor plan. Above the nursery there is a connecting room labeled nanny/guest suite. I am thinking this could be used for guests and overnight babysitters/grandparents. I figured it would be best to put a nursery in a quiet location of the home. What are your thoughts on the layout? I have virtually "furnished" the nursery and nanny room, just not the master or bath yet. That is why it looks blank.

Going to be hit and miss when you go to sell it. Some people will walk in and say "yeah that's a brilliant idea, we need this", and others will sit back and say "yeah that's a bit weird".
Myself and probably the majority of the population will think it's a little odd, and being a door into a wet area doesn't make it very easy to block off later if somebody wanted to. You'll have to make a decision on this yourself, but my two cents is to keep it separate, you can always set up a cot/crib in the master to begin with (not like its too small for one).
Other than that looks real nice mate.

Consider making the bathroom smaller and adding a private corridor between the m. bed and nursery. Or make the nursery the m. bath and the m. bath the nursery. In the future, the nursery could be come a walk in closet, as you don't appear to be showing any closet in the master bedroom.
Get rid of the french door into the m. bed, they take up a lot of room and don't add anything.
The hallway at the top of the stairs looks too narrow. And why is there a door at the top of the stairs?
In the guest suite, move the bathroom door to the adjacent wall, further away from the bed.
But in general back to your original question, yes the door from the bathroom to the nursery is weird. How far into the future are you thinking?

If there's plenty of bedrooms, you could use it as a nursery and move them into another room when they get older and use it as a walk in wardrobe, office etc.I’m a hypocrite and if I weren’t I’d be a success story.

Where is the master closet?
Very awkward location, should be a sitting room or office
2 doors to get the the nursery from outside the master suite?
Can we see the rest of the floor for reference?
No closet in the nursery either?

As I was getting up for work each morning and needed a good nights sleep when possible, I was happy to have both our children as babys in a bedroom further away from the master.
My wife still heard them, its a mummy thing! lol.
Many times the baby will also self settle so whoever it is that usually gets up will be greatful to not be woken up every time they have a tiny cry.
We did have a bassinet in the master for both boys until they were about 3 months old.
In my opinion I wouldn't be designing a house around the first few years of a childs life.

I've worked on one house that had something like this.nursery.jpg
can easily be converted to an extra closet when not needed as a nursery. didn't connect with a door directly and the "sleeping room" was very well insulated from sound (sound proof doors etc.) but the nursery could be monitored or the door to the sleeping room could be left open.
