Sheridan-Kalorama is a sought-after residential neighborhood located in the northwest quadrant of Washington, DC. A historic district, the neighborhood is also home to an elegant mix of embassies, chanceries, churches, and exclusive private schools. Properties are a mix of single-family mansions as well as stately condo and apartment buildings that house some of the District’s power players. In fact five former presidents, including Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and William Howard Taft, all lived in Kalorama at some point.

Kalorama, which means “beautiful view” in Greek, is bounded by Rock Creek Park to the north and west, Florida Avenue to the south, and Connecticut Avenue to the west.
