contemporary glass wall, the now calm and refined rooms are awash with natural light. “It’s absolutely idyllic,” says listing agent Edward F. Joseph of Christie’s International Real Estate’s New York brokerage in New York City. “The staircase, the skylight, and the views really take your breath away.” FINEST MATERIALS Handsome Tasmanian oak and marble floors installed by the architect run throughout the house, which can be configured to suit with either four or five bedrooms, while further highlights include the airy living room, the intimate library with its built-in bookshelves, an elegant formal dining area that can seat up to 12 guests, and four wood-burning fireplaces, three of which feature smooth soapstone mantels designed by Pei. A master suite is located on the third floor, while a basement serves as a utility area and wine cellar. Three baths, a powder room, a kitchen, and an elevator complete the generous property. Currently dressed using many items of furniture and art from the architect’s personal collection that could potentially be included in the sale, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a slice of architectural history, as well as a genuinely magnificent and unique home.

Property The I.M. Pei Residence, Sutton Place, New York, U.S.A. Offered at $8,000,000
