REMARKS:

This exceptional light filled 3-story, 3-en suite bedroom, plus powder room townhouse with large garden and parking is one of 37 contemporary townhomes designed by internationally acclaimed architect I.M.Pei to create a smooth transition from the modern Society Hill Towers to the colonial architecture of the surrounding neighborhood. Located on a quiet street, with its walled back garden and the west lawn manicured gardens of Society Hill Towers nearby, this residence is in a quiet oasis in the heart of Society Hill. The arched red front door opens onto a sparkling marble-tiled entrance hall. A full-sized marble-tiled dining room is on your right, cleverly closed off by a pocket door, adjoins a handsome kitchen with Corian countertops, pantry, built-in desk, and all the amenities including gas cooking, microwave, double sink, trash compactor and oak floors. A convenient powder room with marble floor. Then an intimate sitting room flanked by a wall of windows opens onto a secluded garden with a bluestone patio, mature landscaping and granite fountain, a quiet retreat from the city. A clever brick alcove hides your trash cans and grill. The garden exits to an assigned parking space (currently $500 a year changing to $600 in January) in a central parking courtyard behind the houses, surrounding the second casting of Gaston Lachaise's sensuous sculpture "Floating Figure." The first floor can accommodate a large group for entertaining as guests can easily move through the rooms and even outside into the garden in warmer weather. An original I M Pei curved central staircase illuminated by a huge skylight runs the full 4 floors of the house; a work of art! The second floor has 9'high ceilings with floor to ceiling windows in the formal living room with wood burning fireplace and sliding glass doors onto a small wrought-iron balcony. An inviting 3rd Bedroom (currently used as a den) with built-in bookshelves, a cedar closet, and a full bath with a shower overlooks the lands
