Gut-renovated and completely redesigned to combine modern style with classic accents, 451 Hancock Street is a stunning two-family, three story brownstone in the heart of historic Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn.
As you enter the owner’s duplex on the parlor level, you’re greeted by a light and lofty living space with new white oak floors and flooded by natural light—a warm and hospitable place to come home to, with a powder room and plenty of closet space. But in truth, the kitchen is the main event here. Wide and welcoming, it spans the entire width of the home, capped on the northern end with tall glass doors that open right onto a large outdoor deck (dining al fresco, anyone?). Light marble countertops and a large porcelain farmhouse sink contrast with richly-stained custom cabinetry, as stylish pendant lights dangle above a large center island. The breakfast bar is the perfect place to have a nightcap or casual dinner, though there’s more than enough room for a dining table. Featuring all-new appliances—like a stainless steel gas range with vented hood, in-island dishwasher, and an extra-wide 42” refrigerator with French doors paneled to match the cabinets that line the entire room—this kitchen is enough to satisfy even the most demanding home chef. You’ve even got a microwave and wall oven combo, for that little bit of extra heat when extra heat is what’s called for.
Following the stairs down to the garden level, you’ll find two spacious bedrooms. The main bedroom features large dual closets and a doorway right out to your private backyard (also completely renovated, surrounded by wooden fencing and edged with rich garden soil). The en suite, five-piece bathroom has a shower, bathtub, toilet and double vanity, with a high-tech Bluetooth mirror for music in the morning and radiant heated floors. The secondary bedroom feels anything but secondary, with more than enough space for a king bed and an en suite bathroom of its own, also with heated flooring. One final flight down is a masterfully finished basement, with unusually high ceilings and half bath, and laundry room with full-sized washer dryer and wash sink. It’s the perfect spot for a home office, rec room, workout studio, guest suite, storage space, or all of the above.
Upstairs on the third floor, your tenants (or houseguests) will enjoy a totally renovated, totally spacious 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment, complete with all-new kitchen appliances and in-unit washer dryer. The main bedroom is more than large enough to accommodate a king bed and wit. The secondary bedroom is just right for a home office, nursery, or guest room. And considering the finishes and location, it won’t be long before it’s generating revenue.
Speaking of location, 451 Hancock St is in the middle of everything. The Brooklyn Waffle House isn’t even half a block away, and will quickly become your go-to for breakfast or lunch (try the chicken and waffles, they’re amazing). Saraghina, Peaches, Mama Fox, LunÁtico, Chez Oskar, Brooklyn Beso, and so many more eating and nightlife establishments are just minutes away from your front door. Bounded by the energy of a diverse community, it's close to Kosciuszko Pool, Herbert Von King Park, and several neighborhood playgrounds and community gardens. Nearby subway lines include the A/C at Kingston-Throop and Utica Avenues.
