Like the priciest new listing in Brooklyn in August, the biggest sale in the borough recorded that month was a Brooklyn Heights townhouse, according to PropertyShark.

The three-story, 4,400-square-foot property at 81 State Street dates back to the early 1900s, records show. It sold for $10.3 million.

The second-priciest home sale was also a townhouse – at 250 Garfield Place in Park Slope, for $7.7 million. The next two are detached buildings: a two-story suburban home at 501 Avenue South in Gravesend ($7.3 million) and a three-story Lamm Institute Building at 114 Amity Street in Cobble Hill ($6.8 million).

Rounding out the top five was a three-story townhouse at 24 Verandah Place, just south of Cobble Hill Park, that traded for $6.2 million.

QUEENS SALES

Much like in Brooklyn, condominium units in Queens did not make a dent at the top of the charts in August. The priciest Queens sale was for a two-story suburban home at 122 Malba Drive in Malba, at $2.9 million, PropertyShark data showed.

The next four properties are all detached residences: a two-story suburban home at 56 Groton Street in Forest Hills Gardens ($2.7 million); a two-story house at 30-48 Crescent Street in south Astoria ($2.2 million); a two-story suburban home at 160-16 Ninth Avenue in Whitestone ($2.2 million); and a three-story house at 90-11 56th Avenue in Elmhurst ($2 million).
