Ask Curbed: Is a Bathroom in the Bedroom Bad?

From a reader on the market for an apartment comes this compelling question about whether a bathroom en-suite will put the damper on resale value:

So, I'm looking at one-bedroom apartments both uptown and down, and many of the ones I'm seeing in my price range have bathrooms IN the bedroom (or "en suite," as I'm told is the technical term). I know this means that the apartments were probably converted into Jr. ones from studios. Thing is, the apartments are otherwise flawless--in fact, of everything I've seen, they're the ones I've liked most (with the exception of the bathroom-in-bedroom part). If I can live with it, what's the resale value here? Am I doomed come sell time? Is this just stupid?Answers and bathroom jokes in the comments section.
