The Brighton is a Beaux-Arts Dream in Kalorama

Originally built in the early 1900s, The Brighton is simply a Beaux Arts dream in Kalorama. This type of architecture was popular in Paris in the late 19th century and early 20th century before spreading to the United States, becoming popular in its own right in cities such as DC.

The opulent style of architecture was used in the construction of some government buildings, but also buildings such as The Brighton. This seven-story, Kalorama condo building contains close to 60 residences today, typically ranging from around 700 square feet of living space to occasionally upwards of 1,800 square feet of space.

Previously sold units at The Brighton include floorplans ranging from a one-bedroom, one bath, to a combined corner unit with three-bedrooms plus a den, three-baths, two storage units and two assigned parking spaces. Inside, expect to find such high-end features as hardwood floors and high ceilings. 

You may also find wood cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and some walk-in closets with units of The Brighton. Amenities in the pet-friendly building include a rooftop deck, an elevator, and communal laundry. You’ll also find some common storage and assigned parking.

The Brighton is found along California Street NW, close to Connecticut Avenue. The property is within walking distance of two Metro stations, plus a number of options in dining, shopping, and recreation.

The Kalorama neighborhood sits in DC’s Northwest quadrant and is home to some of the most distinguished properties in DC, including embassies and diplomatic homes. The Obamas moved to Kalorama after the White House, plus several other former presidents have also called Kalorama home over the years. 

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos owns property in Kalorama too. Not only does the pricey neighborhood boast beautiful homes, but popular Rock Creek Park is nearby, plus so are such neighborhoods as Georgetown, Dupont Circle, Adams Morgan, and the U Street Corridor.
