Beastie Boy Mike D’s work appears to have paid off, at least when it comes to his Cobble Hill townhouse.

The five-bedroom home at 148 Baltic Street was the top sale in Brooklyn last month, selling for $5.5 million, according to data provided by PropertyShark. The Beastie Boy’s founding member and his wife, Tamra Davis, did a massive makeover of the home after buying it in 2011 for just over $3 million.

Two units in Schaefer Landing in Williamsburg came in as the second-highest September sales in the borough with a price tag of $5.2 million. Next on the list was a Sackett Union townhouse, at 294A Sackett Street #2, for $4.55 million. The fourth and fifth most expensive sales were on Ocean Parkway in Midwood. The homes at 905 and 953 Ocean Parkway were priced at $4.1 million and $4 million, respectively.
