Live, Work, and Play in Kalorama
Historic luxury homes
As one of DC's earliest suburban developments, Kalorama boasts an ideal location near Capitol Hill, yet it still feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle of DC. Here, you'll uncover a vast variety of both new and existing homes—but the true essence of Kalorama is its stately selection of early 20th century residences in Beaux-Arts and Federalist styles. The market moves fasts in Kalorama, and homebuyers should expect to pay well over $1 million, especially in districts like the Kalorama Triangle.
Upscale shopping & dining
Though Kalorama emphasizes private residential living, you'll still find a diverse crop of local businesses that are worth checking out. Start by taking a stroll down Connecticut Avenue, which showcases spots like Looped Yarn Works, Shop Made in DC, and Bistrot du Coin. Dawson's Garden Market offers some of the best gourmet finds around, while Lapis is known for its kitschy Afghani cuisine.
Even if you don't have children, you'll still benefit from Kalorama's vast collection of top public and private schools. These highly rated institutions provide more than just an amazing education—they also help boost property values over time. Most younger residents of Kalorama are zoned for the District of Columbia Public Schools and attend institutions in Adams Morgan. However, many also opt to go to private schools, such as the Georgetown Day School, Sidwell Friends School, and the National Cathedral School.
Nearby career opportunities
Kalorama has always been a haven for anyone looking to shorten their commute into the heart of DC. Despite its vibrant yet private residential feel, Kalorama is just a 20-minute drive to Capitol Hill and Downtown DC. Many residents work in and around Kalorama at the neighborhood's embassies, and the federal government remains one of the area's top employers. Nearby universities, think tanks, and hospitals have also created thousands of jobs.
