The legendary Osborne in New York City is a striking blend of robust Romanesque and Renaissance Revival architecture and a classic example of Gilded Age style. Its elaborate entrance and richly appointed lobby includes mosaics, murals, and sculptures by artists such as John La Farge, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, J.A. Holzer, and Tiffany Studios. It is a designated New York City Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
This beautifully renovated apartment offers grand-scale rooms in a graceful layout, and blends modern luxury finishes with rare, rich architectural details that include 14-ft ceilings, soaring doorways, hand carved mahogany paneling, and intricately inlaid oak and cherry floors.
The gracious gallery leads to a 33′ foot double living room elegantly framed on each end by wood-burning fireplaces with limestone surrounds. This grand yet comfortable room has sunny southern exposures that accentuate the stain glass transoms above the oversized bay windows. A handsome mahogany-paneled library with a decorative fireplace and full bath is accessible from the gallery as well as from the living room.
The dining room allows for effortless entertaining and has a wood-burning fireplace that lends warmth to gatherings large and small. It adjoins a beautifully appointed kitchen that includes custom cabinetry, Miele appliances and a gorgeous Lacanche Range.
The spacious master bedroom and lavish en-suite bathroom is located off of a private corridor, as is an additional bedroom and bathroom. This home includes central air conditioning, custom lighting, and washer/dryer.
This home is listed for $4.95 million with Stribling & Associates and is showcased by Luxury Portfolio.
