A five-bedroom Mill Basin townhouse asking $8 million was the priciest home to hit the market in Brooklyn in January, according to information provided by listings service Point2 Homes.

The Corcoran Group’s Leslie Marshall and James Cornell and Douglas Elliman’s Lauren Muss have the listing for the three-story, 7,800-square-foot home at 2387 56th Drive.

The asking price is more than $2 million higher than that of the second home on the list. A four-bedroom penthouse condominium unit at the 53-story tower 388 Bridge in Downtown Brooklyn was listed for just shy of $6 million. Halstead Property’s Vanessa Connelly and Molly Bloom have the listing at what is currently Brooklyn’s tallest apartment building.

The next apartment is also a penthouse condo listed with Halstead. A four-bedroom unit at 51 Jay Street – Slate Property Group and Adam America’s condo project in Dumbo that recently launched sales – is asking $5.2 million. Deborah Brener Zolan is the broker.

A five-bedroom Carroll Gardens townhouse spanning 3,700 square feet was listed for $5 million. Karen Heyman and Alan Heyman of Sotheby’s International Realty have the listing for both this 10-room home at 294a Sackett Street, as well as a three-bedroom condo at 1 John Street in Dumbo, asking $4.99 million.

A condo at One Brooklyn Bridge Park asking $32 million remained Brooklyn’s priciest listing overall in January. But that is about to change — a $40 million Brooklyn Heights mansion broke the record earlier this week for priciest Brooklyn listing ever.


Over in Queens, the pickings were more house-centric. A two-story, four-bedroom Belle Harbor colonial home at 126 Beach 126th Street hit the market for $2.8 million, making it the borough’s priciest new listing in January, according to Point2 Homes data. Rockaway Properties’ Lisa Jackson has the listing.

The next two houses tied in price, at $2.6 million. A new three-story colonial home at 181-19 Kildare Road in Jamaica Estates was listed with Exit Realty First Choice’s Elena Barayev. A two-story house at 10901 34th Avenue in Flushing was listed with Exit Realty Success’ Yair Jimenez. The latter property was constructed in 1901, according to the listing.

A five-bedroom Tudor-style house at 52 Tennis Place in Forest Hills Gardens is asking $2.3 million. Forest Hills Real Estate’s Robert Hof has the listing.

Finally, a condo resale at Arris Lofts at 27-28 Thomson Avenue in Long Island City came online for $2.2 million. The two-bedroom unit features a private terrace. Modern Spaces’ Kenneth Lee has the listing.

A four-bedroom mansion known as the Windemere in Douglaston’s Douglas Manor community is still the top listing on the Queens market, at $4.7 million.
