Days after finding out one of I.M. Pei’s oeuvres was back on the market, this time as a rental, we now discover another one of his works is for sale. In true Pei style, this 1963 townhouse has a boxy construction with plenty of light-friendly openings, the most notable being the sky-lit circular staircase.

Hardwood floors are featured throughout, but the second-level living area includes built-in shelves, wood-burning fireplace and a Juliet balcony. (There’s also a den here, which can serve as a third bedroom.) The kitchen is on the first floor and boasts butcher block counters, double sink, trash compactor and GE double ovens, while the neighboring dining room vaunts four panel glass doors that open to a brick paved garden with access to gated parking nearby.
