126 Hancock Street was originally constructed in 1886. This beautifully restored home boasts the perfect combination of high-end finishes, modern technology, and impeccable details, an honorable salute to its past. This townhouse is a four-story, two-family Brownstone. The house features 8 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, a large parlor deck, and an expansive backyard garden.

From the original woodwork & five decorative fireplaces to Lutron lighting & a Heos smart home system, attention to detail can be found throughout this well-appointed home. As you enter the owner's 6 bed 4 bath triplex, you are greeted by a historic foyer with an oversized half-glass mahogany door and 1800s' pier mirror. Stepping into the parlor floor, you realize the breadth of space as the 11-foot ceilings let the light radiate throughout the space. The living/dining area features tall magnificently restored mahogany moldings, pocket doors, original wood shutters and a center-piece pier mirror.

The windowed kitchen is finished with a large island, custom cabinetry, and 1 1/2 inch Carrera marble countertops as well as a full complement of appliances including Subzero refrigerator, double Wolf oven, Wolf six-burner stove, Wolf microwave drawer, and Miele dishwasher. The kitchen is also adorned with a full pantry and wet bar which is equipped with a 20-bottle wine cooler as well as a SubZero refrigerator drawer and freezer. This eat-in kitchen is a chef's dream. From the kitchen, a tall double door leads out to the deck which has been finished with a built-in storage bench and privacy fence.

The wonderfully landscaped, South-facing backyard features a bluestone BBQ deck and dining area with both charcoal and gas grills as well as a bluestone framed lawn which is perfect for those hot summer months. Upstairs you find six bedrooms and three full baths. The elegant master bedroom looks out to the quintessential brownstones across the street and features three windows, a large walk-in closet, dressing area, and secondary closet spaces.

The five-fixture master bath is adorned with Cle tiled floors, concrete-style walls, a tasteful double vanity, glass-enclosed rain shower, and deep-soaking tub. Down the hall, is another king-sized bedroom and classic windowed second bathroom. On the third floor, there are two large bedrooms, two smaller bedrooms, and one skylit bathroom.

The home has Leviton smart home light/sound controls throughout as well as zoned airconditioning. The private basement can be accessed through an interior staircase and features the original arched brick columns and is finished with tile floors. It can easily be transformed into a playroom, media den or artist studio. The separate garden floor two-bedroom unit can serve as an income-producing property or in-law apartment.

This masterfully re-imagined townhouse is located in prime Bedford Stuyvesant and offers a diverse selection of bustling establishments. As well as easy access to the restaurants along Franklin in Crown Heights. Notable hot spots are Peaches Hothouse, Bar Camilo, Pilar Cuban Bakery, Stonefruit Coffee, and Do or Dive Bar.

The local grocery store is only a few blocks away at Metropolitan City Market on Bedford. The BedStuy YMCA only 3 blocks north features, a pool, spin class and several equipment rooms. Bedford Avenue is known for its art and pottery classes offered for all ages at Artshack Ceramics and Soul Collections.

This home is conveniently located near the Bedford-Nostrand Ave A/C trains, rendering your commute to Union Square just 30 minutes. Additionally, the acclaimed Arts & Letters school will be relocating to the area from Fort Greene next year.
