3 Pretty Kalorama Condos for Under $600,000

Affordable-ish apartments in one of the city’s priciest neighborhoods.
Live in this beautiful 1925 Beaux Arts building in Kalorama for $569,000.

Though Kalorama may be best known for some majorly luxe mansions—this $5.95 million stunner comes to mind—ambassador-worthy estates aren’t the only way to get a place with the neighborhood’s signature Beaux Arts beauty. Here, three under-$600,000 condos that feature plenty of historic charm:

Address: 1835 Phelps Pl. NW #23

Price: $569,000

The details: Bright and cheerful, this two-bedroom condo is in a 1920s-era Beaux Arts building and comes loaded with original features. Some of the highlights? Hardwood floors, windows on three sides, antique radiators, custom built-in bookcases, and French doors.

Address: 1811 Wyoming Ave. NW #1

Price: $599,000

The details: Exposed brick walls lend a modern cool to this 1910 condo, offsetting original hardwood floors, pocket doors, and high ceilings. The two-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath apartment also features a sleek contemporary kitchen with two-tone cabinetry, quartz counters, and a grid backsplash, plus a private balcony and a shared roof deck with great views.

Address: 1901 Wyoming Ave NW #12

Price: $429,000

The details: In the same historic 1917 building as this gorgeous apartment, this 750-square-foot condo features ten-foot ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, marble counters, an updated (but still vintagey) ceramic tiled bath, and an amazing oval-shaped bedroom with three sets of original French doors.
