Chris Rock's charming Brooklyn home is on the market — see inside!

Mic, consider yourself dropped.

Chris Rock — the famed comedian and actor who has starred in everything from “Saturday Night Live” to “Madagascar” — is putting his beloved Brooklyn home on the market.

This home was built more than a century ago.

The historic carriage house — built in 1901 — features a striking wood-beam ceiling, exposed brick walls and a spacious rooftop terrace. It’s a place that is near and dear to the Emmy-winning actor, according to listing agent Ann Cutbill Lenane.

The home has an open floor plan.

The dining area leads into the living room.

“Chris bought it early in his career, when he was a young comic,” said Lenane. “He is emotionally tied to the house. He lived there when he was newly married.”

The eat-in kitchen is perfect for entertaining.

Rock purchased the home in the 1990s, when he first rose to fame as a cast member on “SNL”. He would go on to star in dozens of movies and television shows, and voice the characters in several well-known animated films.

His three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom Brooklyn home still has some of the original details dating back more than 100 years, Lenane said.

The bedroom is so spacious.

The master bedroom opens up to a patio.

A large metal wheel is built into the wall — part of the pulley system used to haul feed to the horses in the original carriage house. An ornate spiral staircase features detailed metalwork, while the master bedroom boasts several skylights built into the rich, wood-paneled ceiling.

There's even stained glass in the master bathroom.

The home has been upgraded with a modern kitchen, central air conditioning and an enormous dining room. Rock has rented it out in recent years, Lenane added, but felt it was time to sell.

The basement leads out to a second patio.

The home has a price tag of $3.85 million.

This patio offers another great outdoor space.

“It was his first big purchase, but you know, it’s time,” Lenane continued. “He’s got a lot on his plate. He’s touring. It’s time to let [the home] be in the hands of another family that’s going to love it as much as he did.”
