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.

The bathroom has a stained-glass transom above the door, a set of framed recessed shelving, and a clawfoot bathtub.
