Welcome to 2101 Connecticut Avenue, Washington's renowned premier cooperative, designed by Joseph Abel and George Santmyers in 1927.
Opened as a high-end rental by BF Saul in 1928, it was converted to owned co-operative apartments in 1976. According to James Goode, author of Best Addresses, the builder, Harry J. Bralove said "Occupying the entire frontage on Connecticut Avenue between Wyoming Avenue and Kalorama Road, 2101 Connecticut Avenue is located in Washington's most fashionable residential center. It crowns one of the highest points in the city of Washington and is so designed that each apartment has three exposures, thus assuring a maximum of light and ventilation. 2101, as it's widely known, is perfectly sited in Kalorama in very close proximity to the Dupont and Woodley Metro stops, The Phillips Collection, the United Nations of restaurants in Dupont, Adams Morgan and Woodley, many shops, coffee and gelato bars, galleries, supermarkets, specialty markets, the famed Sunday Dupont Farmers Market, plus drug stores, cleaners and other necessities and conveniences. 2101 has a large roof terrace including two covered gazebos, enjoying sweeping views of the city. Throughout the year, residents may use the two gas grills and the herb gardens.
Apartment 61 enjoys sunny south, west and north exposures from windows on three sides. The foyer and gallery, a signature feature of 2101, open to the grand piano-sized living room with gas fireplace. There is a large walk-in closet in the foyer. The private bedroom wing includes three bedrooms and two baths. There are several closets throughout and the owner’s suite has a built-in dresser and mirror with extensive storage. The study has built-in media storage and can easily be transformed into a fourth bedroom. The sunroom boasts two walls of windows with stunning National Cathedral views. Off the sunroom is a large, light-filled dining room. The gourmet eat-in kitchen includes a Dacor gas cooktop and range, Dacor wall oven, Bosch dishwasher, Sub-Zero refrigerator and custom cabinets. The butler's pantry features a second sink and more storage featuring glass front upper cabinets.
Off the kitchen is a full bath and an office with several built-ins that could be a fifth bedroom.
