Bring your architect and delight to this enormous two-bedroom apartment, once the residence of Oscar nominated actor, Ralph Bellamy. A home for the truly sophisticated metropolitan, the staircase descends to a spacious and inviting gallery which then leads graciously to the grand living room. The ultimate entertaining space, with over 12 ft high beamed ceilings, original herringbone wood floors and decorative stone fireplace. The large bay window faces south while the adjacent French doors open to a Juliet balcony overlooking 57th street. A separate hallway leads to the primary bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The existing palate can be reimagined to include a second bathroom to compliment the home's second bedroom. The kitchen can be expanded or reconfigured, and a washer/dryer can be installed.<br><br>The Osborne is a highly serviced apartment building built in 1885 and notable for its landmark status and well known current and past residents such as Leonard Bernstein, Lynn Redgrave and Bobby Short.
