A nationally acclaimed floor-through triplex boasting a profusion of custom finishes and an eclectic design palette, this one-of-a-kind 2-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom is a blend of contemporary chic and townhouse charm. Features of this nearly 2,000 sq. ft. home include 12 foot ceilings, a south-facing 500 square foot private garden and cabana, exposed brick walls, a home office, a rec room, an elevator, in-unit laundry, and a pair of fully retractable walls. The 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.
The luminous 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 glass door, the kitchen opens into an approximately 500 sq. ft. garden oasis. The outdoor space is outfitted with a cabana featuring a grill, bar, sink, ice maker and refrigerator.
The upper level of the home contains a pair of spacious bedrooms, one of which is perhaps the most unique in all of New York City. The south-facing bedroom features a murphy bed and a sumptuous en-suite bathroom with motorized shades and a rain shower, 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 retractable wall that transforms the space into an indoor/outdoor living experience.
Finishing the home is a recreation or 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 access to the 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 is close to several main subway lines.
