There's a possibility that you don't like the idea of this type of layout, because it's very common for apartments and large hotel rooms. It would make the place feel less like a home and more like somewhere you're staying.
I'm not sure I understand what the current idea layout of the house is, but I would generally assume that two walls of the bedroom would face the outside if it was in a corner of the house, the third would face the living room/dining room, and the last would face another area of the house. What is on the other side of the final wall?
