NEW YORK, NY - Stribling & Associates is pleased to announce the sale of legendary basketball coach Phil Jackson’s Midtown co-op at 205 West 57th Street for $5 million, represented by Nancy Tela.
This beautifully renovated 19th-century masterpiece at the legendary Osborne offers grand-scale rooms in a graceful layout, and blends modern luxury finishes with rare, rich architectural details that include 14-ft ceilings, soaring doorways, hand carved mahogany paneling and intricately inlaid oak and cherry floors.
The gracious gallery leads to a 33-foot double living room elegantly framed on each end by wood-burning fireplaces with limestone surrounds. This grand yet comfortable room has sunny southern exposures that accentuate the stain glass transoms above the oversized bay windows. A handsome mahogany-paneled library with a decorative fireplace and full bath is accessible from the gallery as well as from the living room. The dining room allows for effortless entertaining and has a wood-burning fireplace that lends warmth to gatherings large and small. It adjoins a beautifully appointed kitchen that includes custom cabinetry, Miele appliances and a gorgeous Lacanche Range. The spacious master bedroom and lavish en-suite bathroom is located off of a private corridor, as is an additional bedroom and bathroom. This beautiful apartment with interiors by Chelsea Sachs Design, is in perfect move-in condition.
The Osborne, a remarkable blend of robust Romanesque and Renaissance Revival architecture, is a rare-surviving example of the 1880s gilded-age. Its elaborate entrance and richly appointed lobby includes mosaics, murals, and sculptures by artists such as John La Farge, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, J.A. Holzer, and Tiffany Studios. The well-appointed, palatial residences were designed and built to appeal to the prominent citizens of its day and its illustrious history of residents does not disappoint. The Osborne is a neighbor to fine shops, restaurants, Central Park and Carnegie Hall. It is a designated New York City Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
