One of our favorite things about old, well-kept brownstones? The intricate wood detailing you’ll find along the doorways, mantelpieces, staircases and shelving. The phrase, “They just don’t make them like that anymore” applies here. This brownstone at 429 Hancock Street in Bed-Stuy, a classic Brooklyn brownstone neighborhood, has plenty of the above details. As the listing says, the home is in the Queen Anne style with some Romanesque Revival elements thrown in. It’s also got some modern upgrades to go along with it. For this blend of the historic and the new, it’s going to cost you a total of $1.999 million.

While the kitchen has been mostly upgraded, it still retains a gorgeous, carved cabinetry piece with shelving and mirrors. And in the living room, check out that carved entryway, the sliding pocket doors, and the elaborate mantlepiece above the tiled fireplace. Do Brooklyn brownstone details get any lovelier than that?

The two-family home is currently being used as a three-family, with an owner’s duplex on the parlor and garden floors with a finished basement. The third and fourth floors are configured as two one-and-a-half bedroom, one-bathroom floor-through apartments. Throughout the home, you’ve got seven decorative mantles, wainscoting, fretwork, double crown moldings, exposed brick, pocket doors and shutters.

In the garden level there’s a large bedroom, office, washer/dryer, master bedroom and attached bathroom. Pictured above, we love the tiled fireplace (with even more carved wood) set against the exposed brick wall.

The second bedroom leads to a small office space.

Finally, from the master bedroom you can access the backyard. It’s been designed with a slate stone patio, grass and terraced garden beds. Looks like a little oasis in the middle of Brownstone Brooklyn… pretty hard to beat that!
