Coming Soon: Nestled behind Society Hill Towers, this historically-registered gem was designed by the distinguished architect, I.M. Pei. Known for projects like the Louvre glass pyramid, the National Gallery of Art, and the John Hancock tower in Boston, Pei~s modernist elements are seen in this stunning Society Hill townhouse. Behind a fenced gate lies an elegant brick facade and the townhome~s arch doorway. Upon entering, a sliding coat closet is conveniently located just to the left. Continue on to the chef~s kitchen which includes stainless-steel countertops, sensational floor-to-ceiling custom cabinetry, and professional grade appliances including a wine cooler. A spacious breakfast nook flanks one side of the kitchen, while the living room meets the opposite side. The living room~s floor-to-ceiling windows provide an incredible amount of natural light and the glass sliding door leads out to the stunning patio with seating area, perfect for respite on a sunny day. The powder room completes the first floor with fine, modern finishes. Scale the winding staircase, which connects all four levels, from the ground floor to the third floor. If you continue climbing, the staircase~s top is met with a skylight, illuminating the full staircase below. The third floor opens to a bright sitting room with balcony and floor-to-ceiling windows. A full-bathroom with luxurious finishes and marble throughout can be found on this floor as well as a bedroom. The library lounge/office, with fireplace and built-ins, is a perfect place to work, entertain guests, or relax. The fourth floor brings you to the master bedroom, where six square windows flood the room with light. Two additional bedrooms share a full bathroom with luxe finishes on this floor. The townhome includes a finished basement, perfect for a home gym or studio. A rare opportunity to own a historic home built by one of the most eminent architects of our time!
