Kalorama—Greek for “fine view”—gets its name from a large, classical estate built on one of the city’s highest elevations in 1807. Though the estate is gone, the eponymous neighborhood is now home to some of DC’s chicest addresses, from diplomatic homes and embassies to Mediterranean, Colonial and Georgian-revival mansions.
A world away from it all.
“Do Not Disturb.”
Kalorama is home to dozens of embassies that open their doors to the public every spring to display the fruits of their cultures. You can also get on individual embassy email lists for public concerts, lectures and exhibits held throughout the year.
Rarefied real estate.
Enchanting streets and forested views.
