We are delighted to offer a rare opportunity to own this beautiful bookend brownstone located on desirable Hancock Street. Built in 1892 by developers Henry A. Sibley and W. E Tidwell, this 3,600-plus square-foot Romanesque/Renaissance Revival brownstone would make anyone proud to call home. The two-family home has been in the same family for a generation and features classic architectural details such as exquisite original encaustic tiles, Victorian millwork, lovely stained glass windows, a gracious foyer and beautiful hardwood parquetry flooring. You'll find all the coveted period details that this style of home is known for with original plaster ceilings and crown moldings, waist-high wainscoting, pier mirror and dramatic high ceilings on every floor. Throughout, large windows bring in abundant natural light, particularly the south-facing front bays which bestow hours of sunlight. Views overlook a beautiful tree-lined street in the front, and the very quaint rear view looks out on the backyard garden that is ready to be transformed into your private Eden. This home is located in the newly-landmarked Bedford Historic District containing a remarkable collection of stunning 19th century townhomes, French-style flats and Victorian civic buildings. The surrounding blocks are made up of row after row of exquisitely designed townhomes set upon broad tree-lined streets and avenues. Developed between 1868 and 1910, this section of Bedford Stuyvesant is almost exclusively residential with small businesses, shops, and fine restaurants such as Chicky's General Store, Bed-Vyne Wine & Spirits, Lovers Rock, Sincerely Tommy, Eugene & Co and Peaches Hot House. This home is conveniently located near bus lines, A/C subway lines and the LIRR train. Community playgrounds and parks are all conveniently located. Bring your preservation architect to restore and unlock the potential of this historic home.
