More About Kalorama, Washington, DC

There are two main parts to the Kalorama neighborhood. Kalorama Triangle is bordered by Connecticut Avenue along its western side, with Columbia Road to the east, and Calvert Street to the north. The adjacent Sheridan-Kalorama lies west of Connecticut Ave and is tucked up along Rock Creek Park. To some degree, you’ll find more rowhouses, condominiums and coops in the Kalorama Triangle and a larger concentration of mansions and single-family homes overlooking the Rock Creek greenbelt in Sheridan-Kalorama. There is also a portion of the neighborhood sometimes referred to as Kalorama Heights.

Despite the different sections and some of the real estate generalities, home types and styles are not exclusive to any one part. Instead, you’ll find gradual transitions from street to street with a commonality of gracious and mostly traditional architectural design. Kalorama is also home to many embassies and diplomatic missions, often housed in beautiful old estates. Parks in the neighborhood include the aptly named Kalorama Park (triangular in shape) and Mitchell Park with its sports fields, gardens, and summer movie nights.

There’s not a lot of commercial business within Kalorama itself, but Adams Morgan and its famed 18th Street restaurant row is immediately next-door to the east while Dupont Circle is just as close, to the south. The whole area is quite walkable, and as mentioned earlier, only about a mile from DC’s downtown corridors of power and federal buildings. If it’s the quiet luxury lifestyle that you’re seeking, Kalorama is certainly one of the top residential choices.
