the westmoreland - 2122 california ave nw dc

A premiere setting and admirable views perhaps equally match the elegance of The Westmoreland. On the list of Goode’s Best Addresses, the Kalorama property first opened up as a rental apartment building around the turn-of-the-century, but it took nearly 50 years before the building was eventually converted into a co-op. To this day it remains one of the most impressive and coveted early apartment houses in the area.

As it did in its early years, the Beaux-arts style property still allows for impressive District views from the luxury of the common rooftop deck or the private residences, themselves. Set right along California Street, the building now houses 60 private residential units, rising up six-stories above the surrounding neighborhood.

the altamont - 1901 Wyoming Ave nw dc

A staple in Kalorama for more than a century, The Altamont continues to shine as a grand example of co-op living in the DC area.

Built in a Mission Revival-style popular to its time, The Altamont building remains to this day one of the most desirable addresses in the DC area, even listed in Goode’s “Best Addresses”.

With a mix of historic properties, Kalorama Triangle continues to thrive, enjoying the reputation as a walkable, quiet urban neighborhood. Bordered by Columbia Road, Calvert Street and Connecticut Avenue, the residential neighborhood of Kalorama Triangle is part of DC’s Northwest Quadrant.

While once known simply as Kalorama, the area was later split off into the more urban Kalorama Triangle and the more residential, Sheridan-Kalorama. While more modest in nature than some of its Sheridan-Kalorama residential counterparts, the homes of Kalorama Triangle retain the charm of yesteryear, with even new development designed to blend in with the neighborhood’s early 20th century architecture.

Noted for its sprawling homes and exclusive properties, Kalorama is quickly shaping up to be “The Place to Live in 2017”. Several influential names in the political world are either making plans to move to the community or already call Kalorama home.

Outgoing President Barack Obama and his family recently signed on to lease a 1920s-style home in Kalorama Heights.

Other upscale residences, including the soon-to-be home of the eldest daughter of President-Elect Donald Trump, surround the $5.3 million mansion.
