Sheridan Kalorama, one of Washington's most desirable neighborhoods, has a number of condo and coops that offer some combination of space and charm, and it is located just above Dupont Circle, between Connecticut and Massachusetts Avenues.
But if you want to live there, there are only 3 units currently for sale. While the inventory is very tight, there are many wonderful buildings in the neighborhood, like The Brighton, the building at the left. Because much of the neighborhood is on high ground, many of these buildings offer a wonderful view of the fireworks displays that Washington is so famous for. And while new units do come on the market, the good ones sell very quickly.
This in-town neighborhood is an easy walk to Dupont Circle and Metro, and great exercise if you decide to walk to work on K Street. You can get by without owning a car, but if you do, off-street parking is at a premium.
If you're beginning your search, you can use the internet, including the search function at housepat.com. But once you are ready to look in earnest, it's best to find a good buyer broker and be on her front burner.
I help my clients to narrow down their searches, then I hover over the neighborhoods and types of homes they are looking for. As new listings come on the market, I check them out and, if one looks like a match, call to arrange a showing.
