11 Sutton Place

Townhouse located in Beekman/Sutton Place, between East 57th Street & East 58th Street

Description of 11 Sutton Place

The four-story-plus-basement townhouse at 11 Sutton Place, located in the quiet Sutton Place enclave in Midtown’s east end, was home to late and great architect I. M. Pei and his late wife Eileen for over 45 years. The globally renown Modernist designer’s choice of the pre-war townhouse is unsurprising, given its undeniable advantages - centrally-located yet quiet Midtown location, a lush rear garden that faces an East River-adjacent pocket park, direct East River views from the rear rooms, and space to unleash the architect’s creativity, which Pei expressed by adding floor-to-ceiling windows in the courtyard-facing rooms, three custom-designed, marble-clad, wood-burning fireplaces, and a five-story spiral staircase illuminated by an oval skylight. The townhouse contains a foyer, a grand parlour favored by Pei for entertaining artists and global dignitaries, a garden-facing dining room, a library, four bedrooms (which include a fireplace-equipped master bedroom), five bedrooms, a kitchen with an adjacent staff room, and a laundry room and wine cellar in the basement. An elevator services all five levels.
