Russell, this twenty-foot wide, five story brownstone exudes curb appeal with a meticulously maintained facade, featuring the original intact pilasters and lintel surrounding the main entrance, the original double-leaf wood and glass-door, and incised Egyptian Revival ornaments decorating the entirety of the facade. Original details are also found throughout the entire interior of the building, including parquet floors, tray ceilings, marble fireplaces, wainscoting, and an abundance of intricate woodwork throughout.

Each unit enjoys soaring ceilings and amazing light, and offer distinct character as well as an abundance of original details. The garden duplex was recently completed renovated and now features an open floorplan with a an eat-in kitchen replete with stainless steel appliances, a massive recreation room boasting exposed brick arches, as well as access to a private backyard garden. All bathrooms have recently been updated with rainfall shower heads and glass shower stalls.
Located between Bedford and Nostrand Avenues, 61 Hancock is nestled on the cusp of Bedford-Stuyvesant and Clinton Hills, offering easy access to the best dining, coffee bars, nightlife, green space and art galleries both neighborhoods have to offer. A wide array of transportation options are located in the immediate vicinity, including the A, C, and S trains just a couple blocks away, with easy and fast transfers to the express 2, 3, 4 and 5 lines.
