A pair of Brooklyn Heights townhouses were the priciest single-family homes to hit the market in Brooklyn in August, according to listings service Point2 Homes.

A seven-bedroom, 1820s-era Federal-style home at 113 Willow Street topped the list, with a $12.5 million asking price. Douglas Elliman’s Alexander Maroni is marketing the 5,000-square-foot property. The other townhouse is a four-bedroom home at 165 Columbia Heights, asking nearly $10 million. Gabriele Devlin and Lee Summers of Sotheby’s International Realty have the listing.

The third priciest listing is particularly notable in that it broke a neighborhood record for Williamsburg — a six-bedroom penthouse condominium unit at Xinyuan Real Estate’s the Oosten development, at 429 Kent Avenue. The 5,000-square-foot unit, listed by Halstead Property’s Lauren Canetti, Shelley Wasserman and Robert Lynn, is asking $6.4 million.

Next up were a four-story Romanesque Revival-style townhouse at 44 Montgomery Place in Park Slope (nearly $5 million) and a detached, five-bedroom house at 7529 Shore Road in Bay Ridge ($4.6 million). Sotheby’s International Realty and Jabour Realty’s Jim Brocking have the listings, respectively.

The borough’s priciest listing overall continues to be a 12th-floor condo at One Brooklyn Bridge Park in Dumbo, asking $32 million.


Although the condo listing at the top of Queens list for August didn’t smash any records, it outranked all other single-family homes in the borough, according to data from Point2 Homes.

A three-bedroom pad at Victoria Towers, located at 133-38 Sanford Avenue in Flushing, wants $4.5 million. The broker is Fanny Wen Fa Wang of Wing Fung Home Realty Group.

The next four listings are detached homes: a three-story, 1920s Colonial home at 902 Shore Road in Douglas Manor ($4 million); a two-story, Mediterranean-style property at 2 Point Crescent in Malba ($3.5 million); a two-story European villa at 184-15 Hovenden Road in Jamaica Estates ($3.4 million); and a two-story mansion at 147-23 75th Avenue in Kew Garden Hills ($3 million).

The brokers are Home NY’s Pat McGrath, Prime Realty’s Tammy Blau, Sotheby’s International Realty and Exit Realty First Choice’s Zhanna Shimonova.

The borough’s priciest listing is a five-bedroom, $4.8 million Mediterranean-style home at 17 North Drive in Malba. It hit the market in July.
