$6M townhouse sale breaks Cobble Hill record

A Cobble Hill townhouse located at 223 Warren Street has traded hands for $6.05 million, setting a neighborhood record, the New York Observer reported. The sale also broke Cobble Hill’s price-per-square-foot record for townhouses — even without including the garage square footage. This purchase breaks the previous pre-Lehman collapse record of 155 Warren Street, which traded in 2008 for $5.4 million.

The purchaser, who bought the home for slightly more than the home’s $6 million ask, was hidden behind an LLC named for the townhouse’s address. Town Residential’s Terry Naini had the listing.

Naini said the property commanded the price because it occupies a double lot and is the only home on its block that does not have an easement to Veranda Place. The townhouse was converted by Joe Tanney into a single-family residence after the previous owners bought it for $2.3 million in 2003.

As The Real Deal reported, a townhouse in Brooklyn Heights with a $5.2 million asking price traded hands this week.  [NYO] — Zachary Kussin
