2101 Connecticut: Coveted Kalorama Cooperative
The epitome of traditional DC living in one of the most distinguished and finest neighborhoods, Kalorama enjoys elegant homes of the Washington elite, large Tudor mansions of foreign ambassadors, turn-of-the century townhouses of the well connected, and tasteful cooperatives like the coveted address of 2101 Connecticut Avenue. A full-service cooperative “coop” located in the Kalorama neighborhood of DC, the 9-story building was built in 1928, reflecting the Modernist style with Gothic details. It is part of the Kalorama Triangle Historic District, and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Located on the corner of Connecticut Avenue, NW and Kalorama Road, 2101 Connecticut is walking distance to the Woodley Park Metro on the Red Line as well as its adjacent neighborhood, Dupont Circle, with its bevy of restaurants, specialty shops, coffee shops, and art galleries.
Kalorama is the type of neighborhood for residents who enjoy a quiet lifestyle near the pulse of the city. On Sundays, residents can walk to the local farmer’s market in the neighborhood and shop for fresh flowers and locally grown produce. Popular Rock Creek Park runs along the north side of Kalorama with horse trails, walking paths and dog parks. Residents also enjoy close proximity to the White House, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and National Airport. As a “Best Address,” 2101 Connecticut Avenue offers 64 residences, some of which are the largest in the city. The elegant coop building is beautifully ornate and charming. All of the original homes in the building from the late 1920’s had 7-9 rooms, including a servant’s quarters. Today, the building is on the National Register of Historic Places. Former tenants include the Washington elite: Vice President Alben Barkley, John Kluge, once known as the richest person in America, U.S. Senators William Borah and Theodore Burton, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Benjamin Cardozo, and U.S. Navy Admiral Arthur Willard.
