The Westmoreland: Kalorama Best Addresses
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 historic building still retains many of its original attributes too, including marble accents and white pillars in the main lobby and sweeping views of area monuments from the rooftop deck. You’ll also still find some beautifully refinished hardwood floors, original moldings and stylish French doors throughout the private homes of The Westmoreland.
A short walk from two Metro stations, the premiere building is also close to Embassy Row, plus the vibrancy of Adams Morgan, Dupont Circle and the U Street Corridor. This puts residents of The Westmoreland within easy reach of various options in dining and specialty shopping.
The building is also a short distance from the zoo and Georgetown. As well, it’s a simple drive away from downtown, Capitol Hill or even the White House, putting everything you need and want within reach, living at The Westmoreland.
Of course, the convenient accessibility of The Westmoreland is matched too by its peaceful setting. The quiet neighborhood is sheltered by tall shade trees, making the property feel more like living in the suburbs, while retaining the convenience of a true DC lifestyle.
