Tony Award-winning actress Carole Shelley, who is best known for her roles as Gwendolyn Pigeon in The Odd Couple and Madame Morrible in the original Broadway cast of Wicked, passed away in 2018 at the age of 79, leaving behind her NYC pied-à-terre at 340 West 57th Street. The Midtown West condo is located in the elegant, pre-war Parc Vendome, which is just a few blocks from Central Park South. The spacious one-bedroom home is listed for $1,350,000.

The 14th-floor, corner unit has been renovated but it retains its pre-war charm.

Throughout are nine-foot beamed ceilings, arches, and original oak plank floors. In the living room, a wood-burning fireplace anchors the space.

The galley kitchen has all modern conveniences and a south-facing window overlooking the building’s garden.

A walk-in closet off the living room has been transformed into a cozy office. Though not pictured, the bedroom has great closet space and is adjacent to the full bathroom.

The Parc Vendome is a four-building complex with close to 600 units. It was built in the late 1920s/early 1930s and was converted to condos in 1983. One of the most unique amenities is the formal English tea gardens, complete with a fountain, pergolas, and manicured landscaped. There’s are also rooftop sundecks, billiard room, music room, library, private dining room, banquet room, catering kitchen, bike storage, package room, and storage bins.

According to the NY Post, Shelley bought the apartment in 2007 for $1.2 million. When she passed away, it was left to her godson Mark Holden-Hindley, who has now put it on the market.
