Welcome home to 222 Hancock Street- an impeccably restored landmark townhouse that is now stunning high-end boutique condominiums, located on Bedford Stuyvesant's single most desirable block. This 20' X 70' Romanesque Revival mansion is of rare architectural pedigree built at a time when Hancock Street was one of the most coveted in all of Brooklyn.
Unit 1 is one of the grandest, and most lovingly restored condominium homes ever offered in Bed Stuy. It occupies the entire parlor, garden, and basement levels of this massive, 20' X 70' building. It is a 3,127 square foot 3 Bedroom, 3 baths + 2 half bath triplex with an expansive deck, gas grill and an L shaped, 25' wide backyard. The 70' triple parlor floor is a true showpiece and an entertainer's dream. It features soaring ceilings with original plaster details and over 1,250 square feet of entertaining, living, and dining space. It has floors with original inlays, a pier mirror, original built-ins, pocket shutters, and beautiful antique mantle with a working gas fireplace. Rare stained glass windows are accented, flooding the apartment with natural northern and southern sunlight. The huge chef's kitchen features high-end stainless steel appliances, a large statuary island and a breakfast bar area with stunning woodwork. On this level and just off the kitchen, is a wrap-around, 206 square foot deck, perfect for grilling and entertaining.
An exquisitely designed staircase leads down to the backyard perfect for relaxing and/or gardening. On the floor below are three very large bedrooms all with en-suite baths. The master bedroom suite includes two separate closets and an implacably designed master bathroom with double vanities, heated flooring, and steam shower.
