Eric Hilton's Next Project? Renovating a Kalorama Home
The exterior of the home on California Street.
Eric Hilton, one half of the musical group Thievery Corporation and co-owner of several mainstays on DC’s dining and nightlife circuits, has a new project in the works: renovating a Kalorama home.
While permitted work to upgrade the interior of the four-story house on California Street NW has been ongoing, the second phase of construction requires a variance from the Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) in order to expand the non-conforming fourth story. Hilton purchased the three-bedroom, 3.5-bath home last year.

The back of the home.
With the new construction, the narrow attic level would be bumped out and widened, creating a true fourth story. The new plans would increase the height of the house from 39 feet to the maximum allowable 40 feet, while also adding a stair between the third and fourth floors and converting a portion of the fourth story into a deck.
The existing porch at the rear of the second floor would be extended to create a full deck and a similarly-sized terrace would be added outside the third floor master bedroom. As for the rest of the interior, most of the house is being gutted to make minor adjustments to the layout — including putting a full bathroom on the fourth floor and reconfiguring the placement of the two bedrooms and bathrooms on the third floor.
Saint Studio for Architecture and Interiors, which has designed a number of restaurants and bars around DC including Maketto and Harold Black, is the project architect.
