This is a 2 bedroom with the only Juliet balcony in the renown Osborne Apartments. Once a townhouse with separate entrance, this special apartment was lived in by Ralph Bellamy, Oscar nominated actor in 1937. This is the first time on the market since the 70s. All you need is your architect and some imagination to bring back this unit to it's former glory. Dramatic staircase leads to the grand front room which faces south onto West 57th Street. Original wood paneling, beamed 12.5 ft ceilings, decorative stone fireplace and leaded glass transom all dominate the room.. Original herringbone wood floors are in very good condition.
Generous sized foyer leads to huge primary bedroom and an extra large bathroom with 2 entrances. A 2nd full or half bath is possible as is a washer/dryer. All rooms have large gracious windows. The original kitchen can be expanded or just renovated, your choice. Rarely does a property of this magnitude come on the market.
The Osborne is a full service coveted grand apartment building built in 1885 and notable for its landmark status and well known current and past residents such as Leonard Bernstein, Lynn Redgrave and Bobby Short. The landmarked Osborne lobby is richly decorated and reminiscent of Italian Renaissance and Romanesque revival style. Its Byzantine features include stuccoed and mosaic-tiled walls, floors that mix artistry tile with slabs of varicolored Italian marble and mosaics of glazed terracotta “Della Robbia” panels which cover the walls and ceilings in rich hues of red, blue and gold leaf. 50% financing allowed, 3% flip tax paid by buyer, pet friendly, and pied -a- terres allowed.
