In 2015, actress Jessica Chastain made celebrity real estate news when she purchased a sprawling, opulent home in the venerable Osborne building at 205 West 57th Street for just over $5 million. Since then, the stunning four-bedroom, 3,200-square-foot home that once belonged to Leonard Bernstein has been impressively renovated and is back on the market, asking $7.45 million, the Wall Street Journal reports. The iconic Midtown apartment has been featured in Architectural Digest and other design publications; historic architectural details like Tiffany glass and oak parquet floors have stood the test of time to frame a thoroughly star-worthy home.

The lobby and residences within The Osborne are lined with magnificent historic details like marble and Tiffany glass; the building is said to be Tiffany Studios’ first decorating job. The apartment’s living room is framed by restored mahogany paneling, 14-foot ceilings, and a bay window topped by leaded Tiffany glass transoms. The first of the home’s five wood-burning fireplaces can be found in this sophisticated entertaining space.

Enter the adjacent parlor through a framed oak doorway with pocket doors. Another wood-burning fireplace is flanked by built-in bookshelves and convenient firewood storage. Custom Ralph Lauren fabrics cover the walls; original oak flooring and plantation shutters have been restored to their original subtle beauty.

On the way to the kitchen, pass through a formal dining room with lacquered wainscoting. The eat-in kitchen is both grand and welcoming beneath soaring ceilings. A rolling ladder adds accessibility both literally and visually. A delphinium blue island anchors the room, adding color as well as working and gathering space. Hard-working appliances are integrated within bespoke millwork.

The primary suite gets a wood-burning fireplace and a mirrored closet wall. A copper soaking tub offers a tranquil escape just outside the luxuriously renovated bath. Bathroom details include double sinks, a walk-in shower, and a built-in marble-topped vanity.

Two additional bedrooms get another full bath. The larger of the two offers a trio of windows with views of Carnegie Hall. Modern luxuries include central air-conditioning and a separate laundry room.

The Osborne is renowned as a showcase of Gilded Age glamour. Built in 1883 and designated an official city landmark in 1991, the building boasts one of Manhattan’s most elegant lobbies. Across from Carnegie Hall and just a block from Central Park, the pet-friendly co-op offers full-time door staff, a newly renovated gym, additional storage, and a landscaped roof terrace with open city views.
