2401 Kalorama Road NW
Listed for $7.5 million, The Lindens, one of the oldest homes in DC, went under contract in late July.
The six-bedroom, 8,800 square-foot Kalorama estate was originally built in Massachusetts in 1754 by British merchant Robert Hooper. Then, as DC’s House History Man so aptly explains, it was moved to DC:
“The Lindens was bought in early 1934 for $10,000 by George M. and Miriam Hubbard Morris. It was documented with exquisite measured drawings and photographs in January of that year, carefully labeled, disassembled, and placed in six freight train cars for its move to Washington.”
The home took almost three years to rebuild at 2401 Kalorama Road NW (map), one of the most tucked away addresses in the city. It has six bedroom suites, two kitchens, a lower level tavern room, multiple gardens and a three-car garage.
The house is listed with William Moody, Robert Hryniewicki and Adam Rackliffe of Washington Fine Properties. More photographs below.
