    Rare, one-of-a-kind gem, tucked away on a quiet, cobblestone street within the Queen Village Meredith School Catchment! Built in 1782 by Joseph Bird, this historic beauty (documented in the Library of Congress) exudes charm and character inside and out. Follow the cobblestone down one of the quaintest streets in the city to 813 S Hancock, with it’s tastefully painted wood-plank siding. Enter into the open living room/dining room area, which features a working wood-burning fireplace, carved wooden mantle, custom-built storage, and rustic wood floors. You’ll find a conveniently located powder room with a window and white shiplap ceiling as you head toward the back door. Step onto the spacious back patio and take in the peacefulness of the grand trees and nature that surrounds you. Downstairs, you’ll find an L-shaped kitchen with plenty of storage, tons of light pouring in through the skylight, and a gas range, dishwasher, refrigerator, and microwave. The second floor has two bedrooms and a gorgeous full bathroom with a window. Both bedrooms feature custom, built-in storage and rustic wood floors, while the front bedroom has a fireplace and the larger back bedroom has a conveniently located stackable washer/dryer tucked away. The sun-drenched third floor loft area offers space for a third bedroom, ideal for a primary bedroom with an adjoining private deck where you can enjoy coffee or drinks and the relaxing view. Just steps away from some of the city’s best restaurants, including James Beard-recognized Royal Izakaya.
