After making it big on Saturday Night Live (SNL) with his rants on stereotypes and hilarious sketches, comedian Chris Rock purchased the stunning carriage house in Clinton Hill, a neighborhood known for housing stars such as Mos Def and Susan Sarandon.

Rock took out two mortgages for $300,000 each in order to pay for the 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom house. However, the former SNL star hasn’t lived in the Brooklyn house for the past 20 years, he moved out after marrying his ex-wife Malaak Compton-Rock in 1996. He’s been renting it out for anywhere between $8,000 – $15,000 per month since then.

The historic home has seen a lot, it was originally built in 1901 but has since undergone a number of renovations. Still, it retains much of its original character with wooden beams, a steep mansard roof, and exposed brick. There’s even a metal wheel, part of an archaic pulley system used to feed horses.

Some of the renovations include a garage, roof deck, and a garden with a built-in barbeque for all of your roasts, whether you’re roasting a chicken or your friends, you’ll be set.

Upstairs, there’s a lot of personal touches, such as a cast-iron stove and stained glass windows. The master bedroom has gorgeous skylights built into the slatted ceiling as well.
