Charles Osgood at the Osborne, Estate of the Day
It's always been my dream to live in a home that has room enough for all the books I could ever want. Newsman Charles Osgood is living that dream in New York City. The CBS News radio and television personality owns a fantastic apartment in the Osborne that the NY TImes calls a " cozy Victorian time machine." The Osgoods combined several smaller apartments into one amazing lair. The listing says this is the largest unit that's ever been for sale in the Osborne. The home has high ceilings and gorgeous wood details that include mahogany panels and oak parquet floors. Large windows incorporate the original Tiffany glass transom panels. An adorable wood spiral staircase leads up to a Juliette balcony giving you a view of all those books. The second and third floors form private wings perfect for guests, in-laws, domestic help or anyone else you want to separate by a door or two. The apartment is around 5,100 square feet with six bedrooms. It is listed for $7.9 million.
