Hey, our favorite floor-through condominium triplex with a fully retractable second floor façade/wall that flips open like a garage door overlooking East 14th Street returns to the market! (Or maybe it never left the market!)
This listing for The Brownstone East Village at 224 E. 14th St. arrived on Streeteasy this week.
Here's a snippet from the Douglas Elliman listing:
The first floor is sheathed in perforated metal that provides great privacy, while filtering natural light into the generous entry foyer/home office area. An exposed brick hallway leads to an all-white eat-in Kitchen. Here, a glass garage door retracts, opening the entire wall to an enormous private, south-facing Garden and outdoor Cabana, ideal for intimate gatherings or large-scale entertaining. The Kitchen is equipped with a Viking dishwasher, downdraft-vented cooktop and oven, 36" Subzero refrigerator, and is finished with custom lacquered cabinetry and seamless enamel coated countertops.
This appears to be the unit that Bill Peterson, the architect behind the building, owns. Back in 2012 the asking price was a reported $2.499 million. This time around the asking price is $2.1 million. Public records show that he paid $1.8 for the home in 2008.
