Kalorama is a historic neighborhood that dates back to pre-Civil War Washington and was developed to take advantage of its hilltop location, noted by the fact that “Kalorama” is the Greek word for “fine view”.
This location in Kalorama, West of Connecticut Avenue, houses many of the most impressive single family dwellings in Washington, DC as well as many of the more established residential Embassy properties. Kalorama has been the home to five United States presidents: Wilson, Taft, FDR, Harding and Hoover.
The tree lined streets and residential ambiance is punctuated with various architectural styles. Its central location and proximity to the Central Business District, Kennedy Center, Dupont Circle Metro, Reagan and Dulles airports and the nation’s foremost cultural and educational centers has only increased its popularity for in town living in recent years.
