I.M. Pei Home Sells for $1.1 Million

pei-opener

Most people know I.M. Pei designed the Society Hill Towers, but projects like this three-story townhome at 251 South Third Street, are less well-known. In this case, the home, which is almost 45 years old, has been completely renovated but retains important architectural details, like a unique staircase lit by a skylight. The sleek, modern kitchen — Wolf, Sub Zero, Gaggenau, Thermador and Miele — was designed by Joanne Hudson, as were the bathrooms. There’s a gated parking space and a large garden too. It’s a wonderful home in a terrific neighborhood — no surprise that it sold fairly quickly.
