Kalorama is a neighborhood which is primarily known for its historical architectural styles from the early decades of the 20th century. It has enjoyed a fine and distinguished reputation from the earliest beginnings of the republic which continues to today, partly due to its commanding views and bucolic setting. The elegant, boutique building in which this unit is found was built in a way that honors its neighbors, and is in keeping with the artistic sensibility of its environment. While rendered in a late, post-modernist idiom, it is rooted in the same traditions that were the genesis of Parisian townhouses on the Avenue Foch, as part of the plan for the reconstruction of Paris conducted by Baron Haussmann.The four-unit building was constructed in 2006, and the unit offers an uncompromising level of luxury all on one level. The interior finishes were carefully selected so as to create a unity of palate as well as texture. Travertine floors in the public spaces offer a restrained grandeur, while the private spaces are done in a rich cohort of materials including oak and tile. The room proportions make the entire space feel gracious and comfortable, and the access to the patio through a suite of French doors brings a generous amount of natural light into the apartment. Large enough for entertaining a dozen guests comfortably, the patio is a handsome living space unto itself that can be enjoyed in virtually every season.The unit offers two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, a den, laundry room, large terrace, and an open concept living/dining/kitchen throughout its nearly 2,200 square feet. The floor plan of the apartment was as carefully considered as the finishes, evidenced by a separation of the master suite from the ancillary bedroom, bathroom, and storage space. This affords all of the occupants with the most desired luxury imaginable ~ privacy. There is garage parking for one car in addition to surface parking for a second car. Additional storage is included.One is only a ten-minute walk to all of the restaurants, shops, and entertainments of Dupont Circle as well as being equally close to Adams Morgan. Close to two Metro stops, this is a superb location in every regard.
