Master Bedroom Addition Floor Plan Help

Hello, we are in the preliminary planning stages for a master bedroom second storey addition (directly over the top of current master bedroom), but are having some difficulty with the room configuration.

We don't need the study/nook area but have incorporated it as we like the idea of a half wall or balustrade at the top of the stairs to bring in a connection with the ground floor (but also allow us to close off our bedroom door for privacy & noise reduction).

This extension will have a skillion roofline with raked ceiling to provide a sense of volume and light in the stairway (and bedroom).

Plan A is our favourite but leaves a 1.5m x 5.5m nook, which will look great from the bottom of the stairs looking up, but it's not a practical size. Note we'd move the robe entry to the side of the bed.

We are keen to have the bedroom on the north-west side of the house and ensuite/robe on the south east (due to north really being the only option for a northerly window with a treetop


I've attached the original floor plan & some elevation plans of the extension.

Increasing the footprint of the extension is not an option, due to current roofline in the original house.

Any advice or plan suggestions is greatly welcome.
