Kalorama apartment description

One of our favorite properties!

Located on coveted, Embassy Row in the heart of Kalorama, one block West of Connecticut Avenue NW and two blocks East of Massachusettes Avenue,surrounded by the Embassies and Mansions of Washington, D.C.

Centrally located three blocks from the Dupont Circle Metro and a short walk to the Washington Hilton, Georgetown, restaurants and shops.

This duplex has two entrances. A lower level entrance at the bedroom level will make it easier to bring your suitcases or packages after a busy day of shopping. There is also a more formal main level entrance thru a common vestibule.

The living area is on the main floor of the unit. A generous South facing living room, with bay window, high ceiling, pocket doors and period finishes. Comfortable, fashionably chic with a twist!

Adjacent to the living room is the family room, kitchen and powder room. The kitchen was designed by a noted kitchen designer and opens to a comfortable Great room with a flat screen television, additional seating and a deck that leads to a secret garden

The bedrooms are located on the lower floor and are accessed via a staircase off the great room hallway. The front bedroom has original marble floors, a queen bed and shares a hall bath. The rear bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, king bed, flat screen television
and direct access to the garden in the rear.

This is a perfect package of a Superior location, access to Metro, Shops, Restaurants and a interesting space. Perfect for the person seeking an International Flair yet decidedly American experience!

                Über luxurious and modern brownstone condo in a primo DC location. Super walkable neighborhood with tons of nearby restaurants and bars. Easy access to the Metro. Don't debate whether or not to book this place for your next trip to DC - DO IT! You won't regret it. I guarantee it.

                The flat is located in a very well kept and save neighborhood about 1 mile away from the mall; several Embassies are in the area. Several good restaurants, coffee bars and shops as well as the bus and metro location are just a few blocks away. Overall, the flat is excellently located for downtown visits to the mall and Georgetown. From a noise point of view, one needs to consider that a rather busy street (Florida Avenue) is close by and may bother people staying in the bedroom oriented to the street side. The Duplex is very well equipped with all required essentials for a family to enjoy living. The pictures very well reflect the design and set-up of the flat. Overall, it is kept very clean and functioning but maybe not as flawlessly shiny as potrayed on the pictures. The booking, payment and information process for the Duplex is very well managed and requests or issues are addressed promptly and generously.

                Everything about our stay in this flat was just right. The unit is just as shown in the pictures. The two bedrooms are downstairs, just slightly below street level and very quiet for sleeping. The two downstairs bathrooms were clean and good-sized with a shower in one and a shower / tub in the other. Upstairs is an Ikea lay flat sofa couch but my 20-something son opted to sleep on the more comfortable couch in the tv room. Actually, the upstairs is pretty much one big open area starting with a dining table near the front window, a more formal space around the fireplace, a lounging and tv area, and a kitchen off that space. Windows at both ends of the flat provide lots of light. The kitchen is well-appointed with a viking oven / range, good-sized fridge, and microwave. The powder room is just off the kitchen. The outdoor area is actually larger that shown in the pictures with the little deck being only a small part of the slightly larger patio below. Though we had no problems at all with our unit, the door knob on the front door had an issue and the owner was there immediately to fix it. That reminds me that there is a choice of entrances to the unit; one is downstairs directly off the street to the bedrooms, and the other is through the formal front door. The flat is super-conveniently located near the Dupont Metro stop, so you have the entire city at your disposal. It is also right in the heart of the bustling Dupont Circle neighborhood with numerous shops, cafes, restaurants, and smaller museums (do not miss the Phillips Gallery just blocks from the flat!) We didn't cook in for dinners, but easily could have, and with the numerous plates and wine glasses could have served a feast to family and friends. We did discover Glenn's Market just a few blocks away, which stocks almost uniformly local products that we enjoyed for many breakfast, lunches, and snacks. One evening we picked up and amazing variety of empanadas from Panos Gourmet Empanadas on P Street, and enjoyed a quiet dinner with cousins in the flat. We also highly recommend the long-standing Restaurant Nora, located just across the street. The front window looks out on both R and Florida, and you can comfortably watch the city wake up in the morning, get busy as the day progresses, and gradually calm down in the evening. Though so close to the action, the building must be quite soundproof because inside was a quiet oasis. We were in town for a niece's wedding at the nearby Tex

                Lovely, elegant place, tastefully decorated, excellent facilities from modern kitchen, bathrooms, washer & dryer. Convenient, clean safe and quiet neighborhood (embassy area). Some great restaurants within 3 mins walk. The booking manager is professional, he provided clear instructions from booking to check-in. Highly recommend to families and those who appreciate good things in life.

                Perfect place to have a family thanksgiving and birthday. Very comfortable and everything you need. Quiet. Walking distance to grocery stores and metro and all shops desired. The area is safe and you can walk for fun to almost any embassy within blocks of the residence. The residence is exactly like the pictures. Very clean and very well maintained. We will return one day.

                Awesome property within easy walking distance of Dupont Circle metro. Great restaurants also within blocks. Never had any trouble getting a cab when we needed it. The unit is beautiful and is better than the pictures. Would definitely stay there again.

                We had a fantastic stay at this lovely townhome in THE BEST location for touring families in Washington, DC. Our family of 2 adults, a 14 year old, 12 year old, and 5 year old, had such a great stay here. It is located within easy access of all of Dupont Circle restaurants, shops, and the Metro station. We used the home as a base and daily took the Metro to all of our tourist destinations, coming home in the evening to put our feet up and watch TV in the comfortable living room and eat in the perfectly put together kitchen. Plus, I could do laundry daily, so no need to overpack. Paul helped us find a great running route for our daily excercise. I cannot recommend this unit highly enough. Wonderful!

                This is a beautiful property, that I can't recommend highly enough. It's exactly as it looks in the photos, actually if anything it's bigger in the flesh. There's so much room, that it was an absolutely pleasure to return to after a day soaking up the sights in the capital. Parking's not the easiest in the evening but a few times around the block and we could always find something. The embassy neighbourhood's really pretty, and it is just a 4 minute walk to the metro, or an easy 20 minutes to the White House. This is the first time i've booked something like, as I always stay in quality hotels, but fancied trying something different, and I'm so glad I did.
