Welcome to Kalorama
Does living in a historic D.C. neighborhood known for its sophistication, privacy, and international flavor appeal to you?
The Kalorama neighborhood is located within Washington, D.C.’s Northwest Quadrant, which is famous for its influential residents. Some of D.C.’s elite live in this area, which is about a mile from downtown, including the Obamas, Jeff Bezos, and various diplomats. The region is referred to as Washington’s Beverly Hills because it’s THE place to live when residing in D.C..
One reason for the neighborhood’s exclusivity is its hilltop location. The first houses built in the area looked out over the city because of the elevation, and over the years, Mediterranean, Georgian-Revival, and Colonial mansions have appeared on its residential streets.
There is a serenity to Kalorama as it’s quite literally “off the grid.” The residential streets of Kalorama were exempted from D.C.’s gridded layout system as development expanded outward from downtown. The very walkable Kalorama neighborhood streets are lined with trees, and the historic homes and apartment buildings make this a desirable location for families and young professionals alike.
