The master bedroom of 1164 Morning Glory Circle is generally accepted to be located over the living room. This is based on the door being shown at the end of the hallway by the stair railing, the views down the hall from inside the master bedroom, and the exterior view through one of the front dormer windows into the room in 91, there is no other possible location.

The ceiling of the bedroom is never shown, except where it drops down near the dormers. In 138, Darrin is shown standing on top of a six foot step ladder with a camera looking down on him (Figure 1). This means that in this episode the bedroom ceiling is more than 12 feet high, which is not possible considering the roof design. Actually, there is no ceiling, but an open top to the set for lights, cameras, etc.

The dormer windows on either side of the fireplace in the master bedroom do not exist on any exteriors, either the facade or the studio set, but exist only in the studio interior bedroom set where the windows face the rear of the house. However, in episodes 15, 25, 32, 42, 51, 113, 131, and 140 Darrin or Samantha (or both) looks out of one of these dormer windows (Figure 2), and look into the front yard to see Mrs. Kravitz (Figure 3).

The master suite has a bathroom, including a shower according to 96 (Figure 4). Unfortunately, there is not enough room in the area set aside for the bathroom for a shower to be present.

The set's space was well used. In addition to use as the master bedroom, it was also used for the guest room. By using different furniture and different camera angles, the master bedroom set was made to look like many different rooms. Beginning with 15, and extended throughout the series, all shots of the "guest bedroom" were a slightly disguised master bedroom set. A good example is when Ticheba, Queen of the Witches, makes the room more suitable for her stay in 108 (Figure 5). The set was also used as the nursery in 78 and Figure 6 shows Clara exiting from the door to the master bedroom. It is also used as Tabitha's new room the entire seventh and eighth seasons, please refer to Where Is Tabitha Room? for additional information. Also, this same set was used as the Tate's bedroom in episodes 98 and 221. Figure 7 illustrates the set as the Tate's room in 98 immediately following a scene with the set used as the Stephens' room. Figure 8 shows how the set was used for the Kravitz's living room in the later years, when they converted the dormer windows into bookcases that flanked the fireplace.
