The Brooklyn luxury market was fairly slow last week with 12 contracts signed in the borough, split between nine townhouses and three condominiums.

The properties sold for about $40.4 million overall and went for an average price of about $3.4 million, according to the latest report from Stribling & Associates.  The firm defines the borough’s luxury market as all homes priced at $2 million or higher.

This was a decrease from the week before, when 15 properties traded for about $50.2 million.

The most expensive deal last week was for a house at 174 Clinton Street in Brooklyn Heights, which went for slightly less than $8 million. The six-bedroom home is located in the Brooklyn Heights Historic District and spans about 3,200 square feet.

The second most expensive deal was for a house at 256 Carlton Avenue in Fort Greene, which went for slightly less than $4 million. The Italianate house was built in 1866 and contains five bedrooms across 4,200 square feet.
