Hey, your favorite floor-through condominium triplex with a fully retractable second floor façade/wall that flips open like a garage door overlooking 14th Street is back on the market!

The home (in the building "Brownstone East Village"), which has been on and off and on the market and delighted EVG readers for years, is again for sale. Again.

To refreshen your memory, here are details via the listing that arrived the other day on Streeteasy for 224 E. 14th St. between Second Avenue and Third Avenue:

This one of a kind architectural gem was thoughtfully created to seamlessly combine indoor and outdoor living in the heart of Manhattan's East Village ... #1 is a triplex 2-bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home with nearly 2,000 interior sq. ft. and 500 exterior sq. ft. Fully experience all four seasons in this remarkable residence boasting 2 fully retractable walls operated like garage doors which open and rise and neatly conceal with the touch of a button.

Upon entry to the main floor, the home office features a floor-to ceiling window with a custom ornately designed metal screen. Beyond the foyer, a sleek open kitchen with a massive center island is fully equipped with top of the line Viking appliances including dishwasher, vented cooktop, oven, and 36-inch Subzero refrigerator. The custom white lacquered cabinetry and countertops adhere to the contemporary aesthetic providing a serene backdrop to the coveted garden oasis.

Continue to the 500 square foot entertainer's dream through the automated retractable wall offering seamless indoor-outdoor transition. The cabana-like outdoor kitchen and bar possess all the contemporary luxuries complete with grill, sink, and cold storage.

And some shots of the interior ...

Anyway, the asking price now is $2.79 million. Hurry, probably won't be back on the market for another year or so!

Astroturf backyard with astroturf walls. Could have done something more useful and esthetically pleasing, like grow mushrooms.

Who wants to live in what looks, essentially, like a garage? And on 14th Street, with all the noise & traffic?

TBH it’s kinda tacky and cheap looking... and to have to live on that stretch of 14th for almost 3 mil?!? hard pass!
