A turn-of-the-century townhouse in Brooklyn Heights sold last month for $8 million, making it August’s most expensive single-family home sold in Brooklyn.

The 2,225-square-foot-home, built in 1901, is located at 31 Garden Place, a landmarked street in Brooklyn Heights. The sale was a drop from July’s biggest ticket sale, which was a Gravesend home that traded for $11.4 million, according to PropertyShark.

Two of the priciest sales were at One John Street, Alloy Development’s 42-unit condominium on the Brooklyn waterfront in Dumbo. A penthouse unit sold for $6.3 million and a 10th-floor unit sold for $5.3 million.

In Queens, the priciest home sold in August was a stately home near Kissena Park in Flushing, which sold for $2.4 million.
