To Do: Kalorama House and Embassy Tour
A handful of Washington’s grand embassies and private residences open their doors this weekend. By Mary Clare Glover

Just northwest of Dupont Circle, Kalorama’s streets are lined with beautiful period homes. The Kalorama House and Embassy Tour this Sunday provides a glimpse into the private world of diplomatic entertaining. A highlight this year is the residence of the ambassador of Colombia. Inspired by the Chateau Balleroy in Normandy, the mansion has an intricately carved wood ceiling that was discovered during a renovation.

The tour is from noon to 5 PM on Sunday, September 16 and begins at the Woodrow Wilson House, 2340 S Street, NW.  Tickets are $30.
