595 Hancock Street, Brooklyn

Walk in, relax and start your new life without a care in the world because 595 Hancock Street has been unsparingly renovated and restored from top to bottom to the highest standard. Rich, historical architectural details such as made-to-measure walnut burl doors and moldings are fused with high-end, state-of-the-art amenities such as a 97% efficient central cooling and heating system. Given the royal treatment with every detail and ideally situated on a premiere street in Stuyvesant Heights, this 4-story, 3-family home allows you to live-the-dream in your own luxe triplex while gaining income from 2 rental units — which are as finely finished as the main living space. The parlor floor is the heart of this home with an open-plan kitchen designed to accommodate large gatherings. The custom space comprises Carrera marble countertops, BlueStar range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Asko dishwasher — a tailor-made built-in sideboard nearly 8 feet long — plus a coffee bar that will make you feel like you’re vacationing in your own private B&B. You will enjoy quality time in the front parlor with 2 sitting areas and a gorgeous fireplace focal point. Sleek custom built-ins will store your books, coats and tv without imposing upon your décor, and a parlor-floor powder room lined with Flavor Paper wallpaper offers stylish convenience. The large, rear cedar deck is accessible off the kitchen, and the garden-level master bedroom also leads out to the landscaped garden. A second garden-level bedroom plus 2 full baths complete this picture of the perfect home. As a bonus, the finished cellar has been optimized to create an additional floor for entertainment, a large rec room, storage or whatever your heart desires. This spectacular 1891 Queen Ann brownstone was taken back to the studs and all new high-end mechanicals were installed including a new water main, plumbing, electric, ducted Mitsubishi HVAC in the apartments and Nest 3-zone central HVAC in the owner’s triplex, new 97% efficient Lennox boiler, Frontpoint security system, new steel support beam in the cellar, a state of the art built in wireless sound system with built-in speakers throughout, the owner’s triplex is entirely sound-proofed, all new Marvin windows, roof still under warranty, facade and exterior iron work was redone by master craftsmen. All woodwork has been painstakingly removed, restored and replicated with great care. The recreated plaster moldings are flawless, and the plaster walls and ceilings are as smooth as glass. Custom-stained quarter-sawn white oak flooring runs throughout the home. This owner-occupied home has been renovated with love and care — the right way — with all proper permits filed. When we say nothing needs to be done to this home, we mean it. Experience peace of mind knowing that you and your loved ones are safe and sound with a masterful renovation that has left no stone unturned. Instead, spend your time (and your extra income from your 2 rental units) enjoying the dynamic restaurants and shopping Bedford Stuyvesant has to offer: Saraghina, Peaches, Oaxaca Taqueria, L’Antagoniste, Peri Peri GrillHouse, Halsey Traders, Dog Wash N’ Go, Casablanca Cocktail Lounge, Trad Room, Chez Oskar, Mama Fox, Bar LunAtico, Seasons Garden Center and more. 595 Hancock Street is ideally located a short walk along lovely Stuyvesant Avenue to the express A/C trains at Utica Ave. Total square feet including finished cellar is 3,275 sq ft.
