Kalorama Property Values
The area that makes up Kalorama is almost entirely residential, yet very convenient to the Metro, Rock Creek Park, and the amenities of Adams Morgan, Dupont Circle, and Woodley Park. It gets its name from the name of the decadent home of poet Joel Barlow in the early 19th Century. Kalorama is a Greek word that means “fine view.” The neighborhood is known for being affluent and secluded, and is home to a number of embassies and pre-war condos of historic significance. Kalorama is actually two adjacent neighborhoods, Sheridan-Kalorama (or Kalorama Heights) to the south and Kalorama Triangle to the north.
Kalorama real estate comes at a premium, but the area also boasts some of the most desirable addresses in all of Washington, DC. Stately rowhouses, massive single-family detached homes, and ornate multi-family buildings are the norm in this neighborhood. Throughout its storied history, Kalorama has been home to at least five former presidents: William Howard Taft, Woodrow Wilson, Warren G. Harding, Herbert Hoover, and Franklin D. Roosevelt. The Woodrow Wilson house on S Street NW is now a designated National Historical Landmark. Other notable residents include former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, Senator Ted Kennedy and historian Elizabeth Eisenstein.
Kalorama Transportation & Location
The neighborhood does not have a Metro station directly within it, but is within walking distance to both the Woodley Park and Dupont Circle stops on the Red Line.
