Built in 1960, this Cleveland Park home known as the Slayton House is one of three residences in the world designed by renowned architect I.M. Pei, whose credits include the pyramids at the Louvre in Paris and the East Building of the National Gallery of Art. The home’s unique design includes three 13-foot vaulted ceilings and a concrete roof. The front and rear walls of the home are almost entirely glass. The rectangular pool in the front of the house has Turkish travertine walkways that flow around it, into the living room, and throughout the house—only the bedrooms are carpeted. The library, which separates the two master suites, has two walls of built-ins, designed by architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen.
