The steel industrial-style stairs leading to loft spaces are quite striking, and the limestone baths with Kohler fixtures come in a variety of layouts. The living spaces are very open, with giant windows and modern kitchens featuring granite counters, maple cabinets and stainless steel appliances. Also, the open-sided loft spaces are often positioned so that one can look down at the kitchen below.
Imagine sitting in your butterfly chair, reading a book or playing on your phone as the tempting smell of dinner wafts up, tantalizing and distracting you! It’s also worth mentioning that the new Harris Teeter is right next door. Now you really have no excuse not to cook.
Except for one little thing—Adams Morgan’s famous 18th Street restaurant row is just one block away. What a quandary, whether to stroll to dinner at Johnny Pistolas or Perry’s, or cook in? The pet-friendly 1700 Kalorama Lofts are also super close to the fantastic Meridian Hill Park, and equal distance between the Woodley Park and U Street Metro stations.
