This 1,000-square-foot studio possesses a unique floor plan highlighted by 8-foot corner windows and Carnegie Hall views. The 19th-century co-op building at 205 West 57th Street, known as the Osborne, is located on Billionaires’ Row, and the historic building has seen its share of famous residents, including the unit just across the hall. Once owned by Leonard Bernstein, that apartment was purchased by actress Jessica Chastain in 2015. But the apartment’s Gilded Age luxury sets it apart from its somewhat generic condo neighbors. Asking $1,950,000, this remarkable studio boasts details like mahogany-clad walls and ceilings, original Tiffany window transoms, a mezzanine library, jade onyx fixtures, and an electric Murphy bed.

In the foyer, a crystal chandelier is suspended from hand-painted 14-foot ceilings. Windows throughout the home feature original 1885 Tiffany glass transoms.

The co-op’s main living area features two fireplaces. Rising dramatically from this space is a mahogany spiral stair leading to a mezzanine library with a view of the room below. Decorative and functional details include mahogany-paneled walls and coffered ceilings, customized hardwood floors–and a mahogany-framed electric Murphy bed.

The kitchen/home office has been outfitted with new appliances, surrounded by three jade onyx fireplaces, onyx countertops, and custom millwork. In the bath, you’ll find an onyx-clad basin and a jade onyx soaking tub, WC, and shower room.

Amenities at this full-service pet-friendly co-op building include an amazingly ornate lobby, a full-time door attendant, a newly-finished gym, a laundry room, and a private rooftop deck.
