Two of Everything in a Trinidad Duplex

Upstairs, the owner's bedroom also has double exposure and sliding glass door access to a juliet balcony, along with an en-suite bath with tiled, glass-enclosed shower stall.

An Eye-Catching Kalorama Co-Op
This generous co-op is full of intriguing architectural details. The hall houses an ornately-carved, floor-to-ceiling walk-in confessional closet, with three wooden archtop doors. A double-sided breakfast bar peninsula leads into the kitchen, which has cherry-red subway tile backsplash and an exposed brick corner column. Both of the bedrooms are comparably-sized and have stained-glass clerestory windows; the first also has dual-access, including from a pair of wooden french doors. The bathroom has a stained-glass transom above the door, a set of framed recessed shelving, and a clawfoot bathtub. While the monthly fees are on the higher side for this pet-friendly building, the listing price for the unit is $34,820 lower for buyers who would finance the purchase.
