Beautiful 19th century garden level apartment in classic brownstone Brooklyn home. Enjoy this lovely sunlit floor-through with original details including parquet floors and original kitchen hearth. Updated wiring, plumbing, and appliances. Prepare meals in the charming full kitchen. Shared backyard access.
This is the garden level railroad style floor-through of a 19th century brownstone, c. 1880, with exclusive access from a common hallway. Most of the original details are in tact, but we have modernized the wiring, plumbing, and appliances. The tin ceilings in the kitchen were added in the 1920's, when tin came into vogue as a decorative detail. You will have exclusive use of this railroad style apartment which is warm and cozy with everything you need to feel comfortable during your stay in Brooklyn. Four sleep comfortably on the full bed and queen fold out sofa. There's a grocery store down the street, so feel free to prepare your meals in the full kitchen.
David, myself, and our two children live upstairs. One of us will be available to you to answer any questions and to get you comfortably set up downstairs during your stay.
Guests may use the backyard. Feel free to enjoy your morning coffee, cigarette, or evening cocktail outside at the table. In the summer months I try to have many flowers in bloom. Smoking is allowed outside only. Also, sit on the stoop in the front if you want to take in our lively and eccentric neighbors!
Sadly, I must insist that jumping on the trampoline is strictly off-limits.

David, myself, and our two children live upstairs. One of us will be available to you to answer any questions and to get you comfortably set up downstairs during your stay. The doors to the apartment lock for your privacy. We seldom go downstairs into the common area hallway, so you could go days without seeing us.
Bedford Stuyvesant borders the always hip neighborhoods of Bushwick and Williamsburg. The B46 bus will take you into the heart of Williamsburg for a fun night out! Also nearby is Crown Heights and the Brooklyn Botanical Garden.
We want you to enjoy your stay with us at Hancock House, so please enjoy your cigarette outside. Please no smoking of any kind inside.

Hello. We live in Brooklyn, NY with our two daughters, Olivia and Ingrid. David is in advertising and I work in TV/Film as a costumer. My husband is a doer while I'm more of a ponderer. We work a lot and hang out with our kids and as much as possible. We like old movies, and sitting outside on a nice summer evening. We enjoy spending time together as a family. That's about it!
