The entryway leads directly to the living room, with its wood burning black-brick fireplace, custom built-in shelving, and bay window bench seat.

The kitchen is both practical and stylish. An island, workstation, and walk-in pantry facilitate meal prep. And the tiled floor, retro light fixtures, and views to the outside add panache.

Proceeding deeper into the layout reveals a sun room with its own stone fireplace, broad-planked floors, and 270-degrees’ of year-round natural views.

The open foyer at the top of the staircase offers plenty of opportunity for customization, including use as a tidy office.

At the end of a workday, the chance to de-stress in the master bedroom is only steps away. Not a bad commute.

More R&R is possible on the field-stone patio, complemented by a firepit and custom arbor.

226 Locust Road, Fort Washington, has an asking price of $849,900.
