This beautifully preserved co-op in The Osborne at 205 West 57th Street is a prime example of Billionaires’ Row the way it used to be. Gilded Age grandeur is present in architectural details like carved mahogany moldings, leaded-glass windows, and Tiffany glass transoms, and rooms are large and gracious, with plenty of built-in storage. Asking $4,950,000, the three-bedroom property has the unique option of an adjacent studio unit, perfect for office space, guest or staff quarters, or to add to the main space as an additional bedroom.

In addition to being a grand classic residence, the renovated co-op is a stylish 21st-century home. Original interior features like 14-foot ceilings and hand-nailed parquet floors join insulated, soundproofed walls and modern kitchens and baths. On one side, a spacious living room is anchored by a wood-burning fireplace flanked by built-in bookshelves.

A formal dining room opens below a plaster frieze. The eat-in kitchen is lined with wood cabinets and integrated appliances.

The primary bedroom suite has a capacious walk-in closet and a colorful tiled bath. A media room with its own full bath could function well as a bedroom suite.

For a level of convenience often lacking in city apartments, a large laundry area offers plenty of workspace and storage. Also beyond the cookie-cutter Manhattan apartment layout: A short flight of stairs leads to a library/lounge/bedroom with a wall of shelves.

In addition to this family-sized home, an adjacent separate studio space offers the option for another bedroom, staff or guest suite, or office. This bonus space is also renovated with intact, restored architectural details like a wood-burning fireplace.

The Osborne embodies the classic dream of elegant New York City living, famously home to a long list of notable residents from Leonard Bernstein and Bobby Short to Phil Jackson and Jessica Chastain.

Built in 1883 and designated an official city landmark in 1991, the building boasts one of the city’s most sumptuous lobbies. Amenities at the pet-friendly residence include a newly renovated fitness room, full-time door staff, a resident building manager, a landscaped roof terrace with open city views, and additional storage.
