Although petite, this one-bedroom in a Bed Study brownstone looks meticulously maintained, with graceful original details and modern updates that enhance rather than detract from the existing architecture. Its three rooms take up the front half of the top floor of 256 Hancock Street in the historic district.
There is a mantle, parquet, molding, a bay window, and high ceilings. The bedroom is on the side — presumably over the entrance — but fits a dresser and queen bed “comfortably,” according to the listing, from Matthew Scott of Serhant. The kitchen and bathroom have been attractively updated with classic finishes including white subway wall tiles. No mention is made of closets, laundry, or a dishwasher, but there are two skylights.
The unit is one of five in the Renaissance Revival brownstone, which has been owned by an LLC since 2014. Perhaps worth noting: On the floor below is a 1.5-bedroom floor-through advertised as a fully furnished short-term rental, most recently in January for $3,500.
This apartment is asking $2,400 a month. What do you think?
