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.
