Grand Kalorama Two-Bedroom Condo

Located in a pre-war Beaux Arts building in Kalorama, this two-bedroom unit is filled with interesting details, from the ornate decorative fireplace and custom molding to the herringbone-patterned oak flooring. The sleek stainless steel-and-matte black remodeled kitchen has a nice dining area attached to it. The master bedroom has attractive storage options and the unit is filled with large walls that the current owners have used tastefully to display art and photographs.

Sustainable in Hillcrest

The interior of this four-bedroom home has many things to focus on from the bungalow-like living room to the renovated kitchen that is punctuated by an attractive island.

Solar panels, rain cisterns and compost bins also make the listing one of the most energy-efficient and sustainable in east of the Anacostia River.
