We are re-launching 191 Hancock, an 1890's Neo Grec townhouse that proudly sits mid-block on one of the most prominent and stately tree-lined streets in Bedford Stuyvesant. The house is positioned directly in the middle of the proposed Bedford Historic District. The reconditioned front facade with its massive cast iron railings and newel posts give great curb appeal on a block that remains almost entirely intact. A large, well-proportioned 20-foot by 45-foot 3,600-square-foot house on a 100-foot lot, 191 retains much of its original details including moldings, wainscoting, built-ins (including an icebox), ornate plasterwork, flooring, shutters and massive parlor floor French doors. The ceiling heights throughout are superb, as are the northern/southern exposures. There is a well-renovated rental apartment on the second floor. The house can be delivered vacant.
Situated just a couple blocks from the A/C train and a growing number of coffee shops, restaurants and clothing stores on both Nostrand and Bedford Ave, this neighborhood typifies the unique architectural allure of Bedford Stuyvesant.
