The Brownstone East Village, located at 224 East 14th Street, offers fantastic New York real estate. The building is made up of four units, all of which have access via the main staircase as well as key-lock elevator access. The 19th-century brownstone has been carefully renovated to combine old world charm with the innovation and technology of the twenty-first century. The building's new designs and materials lighten up the formerly heavy building with the addition of glass curtain walls, retractable walls and retractable garage doors, giving the residences a bright and open environment.
The units feature many fine finishes and fixtures throughout. The homes offer varying ceiling heights, from nine to twelve feet. The high ceilings in combination with the oversized Marvin windows and unique retractable walls and doors give the residences a spacious, open and airy feeling. Other unique aspects of the units include custom floor-to-ceiling bedroom entrances, original brick walls and sleek polished concrete flooring. The elegant kitchens are outfitted with top-of-the-line appliances from Sub-Zero and Viking and feature custom porcelain enamel fixtures. The baths are equally well appointed with relaxing Zuma tubs, Duravit wall-hung toilets and Lefroy Brooks sinks. The homes have central heating and cooling and are outfitted with washer and dryer hookups, sprinkler systems and video intercom systems.

The Brownstone East Village has the distinct advantage of being located in one of the city's most desirable neighborhoods. The East Village is well known for its art scene, stylish restaurants and clubs. The street can become quite crowded, and transportation can be a bit tricky. The 4, 5, 6 and L trains are the closest to the development.
