Located diagonally across from Carnegie Hall and 2 blocks from Central Park The Osborne was built by the stone contractor, Thomas Osborne, giving the building his name, and was designed by architect James Ware. The Osborne was a 2 year project which began in 1883 and was completed in 1885.One is drawn in from the outside, and steps back in time inside the Byzantine lobby with stuccoed mosaic tiled walls, mixed mosaic slabs of Italian marble floors along with sculptures, murals, and Tiffany glass. According to the doorman many passersby request a look, but surprise visits are not permitted.
Upon entering the foyer you realize this home is quite dramatic and special. Enter the grand living space with wide approximately 8 foot tall windows which receive direct sunlight from the south, and direct views of Carnegie Hall and Seventh Avenue- south to Times Square. Adding a theatrical element to the Grand Room is a spiral staircase leading to a suspended mezzanine bridge taking full advantage of the dramatic 13 foot plus ceilings. The ceilings are finished with rich deep mahogany paneling. A murphy bed is hidden in a mahogany case, and two fireplaces anchor the east and west sides of the approximately 35 foot grand room accentuating the rich wood finishes throughout. The home includes a home office, a windowed kitchen, and in the giant bath a deep soaking tub, separate shower, and water closet along with a 3rd fireplace. There is a wealth of closets and storage throughout. Pied a terres and pets are welcome with board approval.
