A grand lifestyle is within reach for the buyers of a custom Colonial-style home in Fort Washington, Md., with more than 7,500 square feet of luxurious living space on three levels.

The all-brick home, built in 2004, features six bedrooms, 4 1/2 baths and a three-car garage. Located in the community of Tantallon on the Potomac, the home has a view of the Tantallon Golf Course and is within walking distance of the Fort Washington Marina. This home at 12509 Monterey Circle is being offered for $990,000.

An airy two-story foyer makes an impression with a dramatic chandelier and gleaming hardwood floors. The foyer features elegant wall moldings, a deep alcove for decorating near the entry door, a coat closet and two pairs of columns at the wide entryway to the formal living room and dining room.

The formal rooms offer plush ivory carpeting and boast a bay window in each, along with thick crown molding. The dining room is spacious, with enough room for the owner’s long dining table, which seats 10. This room opens to both the foyer and the kitchen.

A dual-landing staircase in the foyer branches off into the rear hall for access from both the front and back of the home. Beyond the staircase is an open hall area where the hardwood floors continue.

In the rear is a formal library with double glass doors and two Palladian windows, a spacious half bath with a designer pedestal sink, and an expansive, centrally located family room with a columned entry. A gas fireplace with a black marble surround is the focal point of the family room, and the room’s large windows offer views of the golf course.

Ideal for entertaining, the open floor plan has a great flow. The well-equipped chef’s kitchen has recessed lighting, hardwood floors, a butler’s serving bar, a desk with mail slots, black granite counters and designer cabinetry. Upgraded appliances include a six-burner cooktop island, side-by-side refrigerator, oven and dishwasher.

Directly behind the breakfast area is a solarium with a vaulted ceiling and ceramic tile floors. Walls of windows seem to bring the outdoors inside. There also is a set of sliding glass doors.

Upstairs are four bedrooms and three baths. The huge master suite has a separate sitting room and exercise room. The master bedroom has a tray ceiling, and the sitting room has a gas fireplace and windows overlooking the golf course. There’s also a walk-in closet with organizers.

The impressive master bath features ceramic tile floors and ceramic walls surrounding the step-up Jacuzzi tub and separate shower.

The master bath separates the bedroom from the private exercise room. The size of a small bedroom, the latter space is great for early-morning workouts without having to leave home.

There are three more bedrooms, each with ample closet space, and two baths on this level.

The lower level is finished with two more bedrooms, a full bath, a long granite wet bar and a home theater.

The basement offers walk-up access to the rear yard and a patio. An intercom system makes it easy to communicate throughout the house, and an in-ground irrigation system helps maintain the landscaping.

Additional features include central vacuuming, a washer and dryer, dual-zone gas heat and a security system. Residents can enjoy the amenities offered by the Tantallon Country Club and can take their boat from the marina to nearby National Harbor for dinner.
