The Wyoming in sought-after Kalorama is frequently referred to as a Washington “Best Address.” The Wyoming is also one of our selections for “Most Grande” on The It Buildings list of Life At The Top. It is a grand and gracious Beaux Arts condominium that was built more than a century ago. It boasts one of the most spectacular marble lobbies in Washington and is noted in the National Register of Historic Places.
The Wow Factor On A Scale Most Grande
When Unit #401 came on the market in January, it was listed originally for $1,650,000. Frankly the property was under-prepared for the market and just didn’t look that good so many buyers passed it by. It wasn’t a bad value, but after less than 60 days on market the price dropped by $150,000 (almost 10% in one shot)! My buyers jumped at the opportunity and survived what became a multiple offer situation because of our all-cash offer. Bottom line is that my clients got the advantage of a great buy and didn’t have to spend more than list!
Now they have over 3000 square feet to work with in one of DC’s Best Addresses. While all of the apartments at The Wyoming are spacious, #401 is especially so – it is two units merged artfully into a grand space measuring 3,000 sq. ft., with 5 bedrooms, (currently configured as 3 bedrooms, den and office) and 3 full baths. The space seems even larger thanks to 10-ft. ceilings crown mouldings, inlaid wood floors and other exquisite details. The new owners plan is to significantly renovate the property and to move in when they come back to the country to live next year.
Enjoying Upscale Urban Living in Kalorama
Owners at The Wyoming enjoy a 24-hour front desk, a lovely grassy garden with child’s play area, and a panoramic roof deck with sweeping views.
Between 1897 and 1931, Kalorama was developed into a neighborhood with the vibe of New York’s Upper West Side — full of beautiful views and old-world appeal.

Next door, vibrant Dupont Circle and Georgetown tempt residents with a multitude of restaurants and shops. Kalorama offers a quiet lifestyle just blocks from the pulse of the city.
