Description

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. This unit is part of the estate of a renown Hollywood film historian and TV personality. 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. Unit 1 CB has the benefit of having the lobby as its hallway. This one bedroom has 14 ft ceilings in the bedroom and hallway and a charming great room with a kitchenette behind original divided mirror doors.

Pin drop quiet as it does not face 57th Street. Spacious with great storage. The Osborne is in excellent financial condition and just retiled it's rooftop where the residents annually watch the ball drop in Times Square on New Year's Eve.

Bike storage available. Only 2 blocks to Central Park so bring Rover as pets are allowed. 3% flip tax paid by buyer, 50% financing allowed.

Live/work not allowed.
