An entertainer's paradise, 224 E 14th St #1 is the most unique home in all of New York City. Two fully retractable walls redefine indoor / outdoor living like you never thought possible. With a flip of a switch, your living room wall opens, transforming the space into what feels like a massive balcony, allowing you to take in the energy of the city. With a push of a button, your kitchen wall opens, allowing you to travel seamlessly into your 500 sq. ft. private oasis; a massive open garden and cabana, with a grill, bar, sink, and refridgerator; perfect for parties in the day and night.
A transformative floor-through triplex, this 2-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home has graced the cover of New York Magazine, was selected as Elle Decor’s “Pick of the World’s Most Beautiful Homes,” and was highlighted in the American Institute of Architects.
Other features of this nearly 2,000 sq. ft. home include 12 foot ceilings, exposed brick walls, a home office, a guest room, an elevator, and a convenient in-unit washer/dryer.
The entry foyer, utilized as a home office, possesses a floor-to-ceiling window mantled in an intricately-designed perforated metal screen. The south side of the main level is occupied by an immaculate, all-white eat-in kitchen equipped with a huge island, and Viking appliances including a dishwasher, vented cooktop and oven, a 36-inch Subzero refrigerator, and custom lacquered cabinetry and countertops. Via a distinctive garage-style door, the kitchen opens into an approximately 500 sq. ft. private garden oasis.
The upper level of the home contains a pair of spacious bedrooms. The south-facing bedroom features a murphy bed and a sumptuous en-suite with dual sinks, custom penny flooring, rain shower, and motorized shades for privacy, while the north-facing bedroom—which can also act as a living room—has two floor-to-ceiling sound insulated windows, an aquarium that runs the width of the apartment, and, with the flip of a switch, a fully-retractable wall that transforms the space into an indoor/outdoor oasis.
Finishing the home is the guest room that’s currently utilized as a formal dining room. Highlights include exposed stone walls that are part of the building’s original foundation, a floor-to-ceiling window, and a glass-paneled door that provides direct access to your garden.
Located just a few blocks from Union Square, 224 E 14th St provides residents with keyless entry, keyed elevator access, central heat and air, and a vented washer and dryer. The building is close to a number of trendy restaurants, bars, shops, and cafes, and several main subway lines.
