Original details like decorative fireplaces, wood moldings and pocket doors await you at this $1.85 million Bed-Stuy residence at 349 Hancock Street. This 3,104-square-foot home was built in 1900 and sits on an 18 x 100-foot lot. It is currently divided into an owner’s triplex over a garden apartment—and there’s even a cool room for your drum set.
The five-bedroom triplex has tons of fireplaces and light streaming in from oversized windows on both sides of the residence. The bad news is this is one of those old homes that doesn’t have a bathroom on the main level, but there are still some pretty cool details that make up for it. For instance, one of the windowed bathrooms features a clawfoot tub and wainscoting. And while we’re on the subject of head-turning details, it’s hard to ignore the ornate alcove with wall mural in one of the bedrooms.
The one-bedroom garden apartment features an open living room and kitchen concept. This space has plenty of light and the bathroom has an entrance from the bedroom and from the main living space. We’re guessing the attached space on this level is where you’ll find the music room that is set for all your artistic endeavors, whether it’s rocking out like Mozart or just losing yourself in a book.
349 Hancock Street is situated right in the heart of up-and-coming Bed-Stuy. It’s close to transportation, and tons of bars, coffee shops, and trendy restaurants.
