A four-bedroom penthouse condominium unit at One John Street in Dumbo asking $8.8 million was the priciest home to hit the market in Brooklyn in February, according to information provided by listings service Point2 Homes.

The 3,657-square-foot apartment, unit PHE, features four-and-a-half bathrooms and 27 windows. Miller Samuel’s Jonathan Miller told The Real Deal the unit is one of the most expensive condos in Brooklyn ever. Karen Heyman of Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing.

The second home on the list is a three-story, renovated Park Slope townhouse at 250 Garfield Place asking $7.5 million. The 4,200-square-foot property has four bedrooms and was built in the 1890s. Brown Harris Stevens’ Joan Goldberg has the listing.

Despite this townhouse’s high ranking, condos dominated in the borough. One Brooklyn Bridge Park, a recurring building on the list, took both third and fifth place – with a five-bedroom condo asking $7.4 million and a three-bedroom pad asking nearly $6 million. The Corcoran Group’s Leslie Marshall and James Cornell are listing unit 1014-1015, while Alan Heyman and Karen Heyman of Sotheby’s are listing unit 210.

The fourth priciest listing was for a newly built six-bedroom condo at the Oosten, located at 429 Kent Avenue in Williamsburg. Kristine Ragone of Halstead Property is listing the pad, which spans over 5,000 square feet.

A three-bedroom condo at the Clock Tower at 1 Main Street in Dumbo is Brooklyn’s priciest current, at $18 million.

QUEENS 

Over in Queens, a two-bedroom condo at the View at East Coast, located at 46-30 Center Boulevard in Long Island City, hit the market for $4.4 million, making it the borough’s priciest new listing in February, according to Point2 Homes data.

Theodosis Neocli of Douglas Elliman has the listing, which is currently the priciest in all of Queens. However, that is slated to change. Earlier this week, a three-bedroom condo at the building hit the market for $5.4 million and could be the priciest single-family home in Queens if it were to sell at that price.

Next, a six-bedroom house at 6 Summit Place in Malba asked $3.2 million. Century 21 Bay Benjamin has the listing for the 9,000-square-foot property. Also in Malba, a four-bedroom house at 160-16 Ninth Avenue was listed for $2.5 million with Nelly Andrushenko of Power Realty.

Rounding out the top five were an eight-room house at 146-16 58th Avenue in Flushing ($2.3 million) and a five-bedroom townhouse at 70 Exeter Street in Forest Hills ($2.25 million). The brokers are Daniel Menard of Nest Seekers International and Robert Hof of Sotheby’s International Realty, respectively.
