Trees, friendliness and old-time charm are draws in the Kalorama neighborhood in northwest DC.  It’s a unique blend of urban and suburban, and within walking distance to the Woodley Park Metro Station.  Residents tend to stay a while in this D.C. neighborhood.  We have featured below some of our favorite Kalorama Triangle developments---all historic residences set in beautifully ornate architecture featured on the National Register of Historic Places.

2029 Connecticut in Kalorama is a 7-story Beaux Arts-style building featuring only 26 condo and penthouse residences.  The historic property is a highly sought-after address, and has been home to many of Washington’s elite, such as President William Howard Taft, singer Lena Horne, as well as Presidential nominee and Senator George McGovern.  The floor plans range in size from under 1,200 square feet to approximately 5,000 square feet, including 1-4 bedrooms and 2-4 bath units with luxurious finishes, such as fireplaces, elegant millwork, high ceilings, inlaid floors, and sweeping views of the city and monuments.  2029 Connecticut is located on Connecticut Avenue with an easy walk to the Dupont Circle and Woodley Park Metro Stations, and residents can walk to the adjacent Adams Morgan and Dupont Circle neighborhoods.  

2101 Connecticut in Kalorama is a full-service 9-story co-op building, featuring 64 luxury residences, and ranging in size from 7-9 spacious rooms.  One of Kalorama Triangle’s Historic District buildings, this is a late 1920’s building, formerly home to John Kluge, once the richest person in America.  The floor plan includes detailed moldings and architectural details, oversize windows and inlaid floors, soaring ceilings, and marble floors.  Amenities include a 24-hour staffed front desk, a private roof deck to enjoy panoramic views, and a grand lobby.  Residents have an easy walk to Woodley Park Metro Station, and 14th Street restaurants and boutiques.

The Beaux Arts architectural-designed Carthage building in Kalorama features an 8-story building with just 28 elegant condos.  The building is set back from the busy streets, and forms a triangle shape surrounded by leafy green space on a private corner.  It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  All condos are 2-bedroom units from 1,484 to approximately 2,000 square feet, and include private outdoor living space with high interior ceilings, fireplaces, and original pristine hardwood floors.  Building amenities include a doorman and Concierge, a roof top deck to enjoy panoramic city views, and garage parking.  From the Carthage, residents have a quick walk to dining and area shops, Metro Station, and proximity to Adams Morgan and Dupont Circle neighborhoods.

The oldest luxury building in DC is The Mendota in Kalorama, as featured in Goode’s list of “Best Addresses.”  The 7-story co-op building features 48 residences with generous floor plans.  The building has a manually operated elevator, grand lobby and splendid architectural details.  Residents enjoy 10’ high ceilings, oversize windows, fireplaces, and original crown moldings.  Building amenities include a 24-hour staffed front desk, courtyard, parlor, and bike storage.  It is walking distance to Woodley Park Metro.
