Hot Property in Kalorama = Classy Living

May 13, 2013

Kalorama is the much-sought-after location for a new property on the market that has the sophistication and style so many movers-and-shakers long for nowadays.

Offered by Beasley Real Estate, the residence, at 2120 Wyoming Avenue NW, No., 2, is priced at $1,995,000. Noted developer Keener Squire built this three bedroom two-and-a-half bath residence in 2007.

Superior quality resonates. This luxury apartment, located in a boutique 4-unit building, is just a hop, skip and jump away from restaurants, sidewalk cafes, and museums of Dupont Circle.

The elevator opens into the private residence.

The large open living room features a gas fireplace with limestone and wood floor-to-ceiling surround. The living area opens to the formal dining area with custom designer lighting and is adjacent to large gourmet chef's kitchen with granite counters, Dacor gas range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Marvel wine refrigerator, state of the art Ariston built-in espresso machine, two Fisher & Paykel dishwasher drawers, Dacor wall oven and microwave, and center island with breakfast bar.

Opposite the kitchen is a wall of windows with double French doors leading out to a large west-facing balcony ideal for grilling. A spacious sitting room separates the living area and the master suite. Double doors open to a luxurious master bedroom with a center tiled vestibule.

The master bath offers double vanities, a large tub, and spacious glass-walled shower with side jets and steam option. The custom walk-in closet would please anyone with its multiple shelving, and hanging and drawer combinations. The bedroom itself has floor-to-ceiling windows splashing the room with light and enough room for a sitting area.

Off the rear hallway is the powder room and a laundry room with full size washer and dryer.

The guest suite has a spacious closet and a full bath with tiled tub and a glass separation wall. The third bedroom has a closet and French doors out to the balcony. The owner and guests have enough space to spread out without bumping into each other.

Montrose Park Hootenany

Congratulations, it's twin owlets for the Barred Owl family in residence at Montrose Park. 

Nesting high above the northwest side of Montrose Park adjacent to Dumbarton Oaks,  during the day they are always under the watchful eye of their mother who sits slightly higher up in an adjacent tree with her gaze alternating between park onlookers and her babies. 

Dad is always very close as well and can be seen at dusk commencing his nightly hunt for food to give to the new fuzzy pair.
