KALORAMA

Kalorama Neighborhood Information

Kalorama was the name of a palatial estate surrounded by natural splendor, built in the late 1700s. It wasn’t until the 1880s that the area now known as the Kalorama Triangle was subdivided. The construction of bridges and arrival of streetcar lines circa 1900 brought a development boom lasting mainly until 1931.  Architecture tended toward either middle-class dwellings or high-style variations of trends like English Arts and Crafts, Georgian Revival and Mediterranean.

Kalorama Real Estate at a Glance - Washington DC

How does that translate to modern home buyers? Simply put, condos for sale in former apartment buildings cost less while crazy old mansions that were designed for Washington’s elite prior to the Great Depression cost more. Row houses, originally built as affordable worker dwellings, now fall somewhere in the middle with prices generally determined by square footage. 

Kalorama’s neighbors include Columbia Heights to the north, Adams Morgan to the east, Dupont Circle to the south and Massachusetts Avenue’s Embassy Row to the west. Also, Rock Creek Park wraps around the western side. The average real estate prices here can be greatly affected by particular high-end listings. But suffice to say, browsing homes for sale in this centrally located urban neighborhood is a lot of fun. 

Kalorama FAQ’s

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How did Kalorama get its unusual name?

A: The area dates back to the 1700s, and a sprawling estate on a hill known as Belair. Sometime around 1807, the home was sold to an author named Joel Barlow who rechristened it as Kalorama, a Greek term translating roughly to “fine view.”

Q: What sort of homes for sale will I find in Kalorama today?

A: Despite its early origins, Kalorama didn’t become more widely developed until the late 1800s. Many of the properties in the area are historic in nature, with rowhouses, stately Federal and Georgian-style mansions, and grand old apartment buildings that have converted to condos or co-ops for sale.

Q: How far is it from Kalorama to Washington, DC’s downtown area?

A: Kalorama is about only about a mile from downtown DC, and 1.2 miles from the White House. Connecticut Avenue, which is one of Washington’s earliest streets and a major throughfare, goes straight from Kalorama to downtown and the White House.

Q: What are some of the other neighborhoods near Kalorama?

A: Surrounding communities include Woodley Park to the northwest, Adams Morgan to the east, Dupont Circle to the south, and Kalorama Heights as well as the Rock Creek Park greenbelt to the west.
