A three-story Brooklyn Heights townhouse that sold for $5.7 million was the priciest residential home sale in Brooklyn recorded in March, according to PropertyShark data.

The 3,840-square-foot property at 12 Garden Place was built in the early 1900s. The second and third priciest sales on the list are both Boerum Hill townhouses. One is a new four-story home at 99 Boerum Place which sold for $5 million, while the other is a three-story property at 162 Bergen Street which sold for $4.4 million.

Next, one of the nine properties at the Townhouses of Cobble Hill development changed hands for $3.946 million. Now that the 3,500-square-foot, four-story building at 120 Congress Street has sold, only one of the townhouses – developed in 2013 by Jason Halpern, Gerald Longo and Congress Street Development – remains on the market.

In Fifth Place, yet another townhouse – a three-story property at 5 Plaza Street West in Park Slope – went for $3.945 million.


Over in Queens, a detached suburban home in Forest Hills was the borough’s priciest residential sale recorded in March, at $2.9 million, PropertyShark data show. The 2.5-story home at 110-02 68th Drive spans 3,580 square feet.

In the No. 2 spot, a two-story A-frame house at 26-24 3rd Street in Astoria sold for $1.98 million.

The third and fifth spots also went to Forest Hills properties. A suburban home at 109 75th Road sold for $1.9 million and another one at 62 Rockrose Place sold for $1.6 million.

In between those two homes on the price ranking was a three-bedroom, 1,640-square-foot condominium unit at 5-41 47th Road in Long Island City that closed for $1.8 million.
