Kalorama is a Best Address.
- Kalorama is located just outside the original limits of Washington City and the L’Enfant plan. It is made up of two neighborhoods: Kalorama Triangle to the east of Connecticut Avenue and Kalorama Heights to the west. The area was sub-divided in the early 1880s, so after the original city was planned and before today’s Washington DC ‘s street grid was put in place. It has character.
- Histroic Kalorama Triangle is also considered to be part of the Adams Morgan neighborhood and has a great blend of classic rowhomes and apartment buildings.
- Kalorama Triangle’s shops and restaurants can be found along Columbia Road including the Mintwood restaurant. A favorite of mine.
- Kalorama Heights on the other hand is a neighborhood of elegant townhomes and grand residences. It has gotten a lot of press coverage as of late having become popular with the who’s who of Washington.
- Kalorama Heights or Sheridan-Kalorama is home to many embassies that make up the Embassy Row here along Massachusetts Avenue as well as many international compounds that can be found in the neighborhood.
