The Brooklyn luxury market picked back up last week and was topped by a contract for what could be the priciest condo sale in Carroll Gardens history.

There were 12 contracts signed overall in the market last week, split between nine townhouses and three condos.

The properties sold for a total of about $43 million and went for an average price of roughly $3.3 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.

Both figures were up from the week before, when the market saw just seven sales worth about $24.1 million overall.

The most expensive deal last week was for the corner penthouse condo at 145 President Street in Carroll Gardens, which went for $4.5 million. The four-bedroom unit spans 2,321 square feet and will set a record for the most expensive condo sale ever in Carroll Gardens as long as it closes at its contract price.

The second most expensive deal was for a townhouse at 166 Lafayette Avenue in Fort Greene, which saw a contract signed for about $4.3 million. The home was built back in 1875 and spans 5,200 square feet. Features include a solar power roof, a greenhouse kitchen and an outdoor deck. The property is currently configured as a four-family residence.

Other major deals last week included a townhouse at 1105 Cortelyou Road in Flatbush for slightly less than $4 million and a condo at 200 Water Street in Dumbo for about $3.9 million. – Eddie Small
