2029 Connecticut Avenue is one of my favorite buildings! Rarely do units come available and many are sold privately. It’s a splendid pre-war masterpiece of grand proportions, old word detailing, and a superb walkable location. Best of all, there is a magnificent residence available right now of a size (3,420 square feet) only occasionally offered for sale — that unit is #52 2029 Connecticut Avenue! Take the tour of this TTR Sotheby’s International Realty listed as a Private Exclusive for $2.1 Million. I’d love to guide you through this exquisite opportunity.
According to the Washington Post, “The grand apartments have long attracted distinguished residents, including President William Howard Taft, Saudi Arabia’s Prince Bandar bin Sultan, Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas and entertainer Lena Horne. Sen. George McGovern (D-S.D.) lived here, as did congresswoman Lindy Boggs (D-La.).” In 1987, 2029 was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

One of Washington’s prized Beaux Arts buildings, 2029 sits prominently atop Connecticut Avenue in the distinguished neighborhood of Kalorama. With just 24 residences building-wide, only one or two units trade each year making 2029 one of the hardest buildings in which to acquire a residence. Unit 52 is, indeed, a rare opportunity.
Once home to Pablo Casals, the famed Spanish cellist and guest of the Kennedys, the 4-bedroom, 4-bath residence features the original quarter-sawn oak parquet floors as well as the plaster festoons, moldings, and pocket doors that highlight the public spaces. Modern amenities include a kitchen that is functional and elegant, and a renovated master bathroom that is to die for. A high-efficiency Unico air-conditioning system was added to defeat Washington’s summertime heat.

Developed mostly between 1897 and 1931 Kalorama is home to several embassies. Adjacent to vibrant Dupont Circle with a multitude of restaurants and shops, Kalorama offers a quiet lifestyle just blocks from the pulse of the city.
