Last week was the best week of the year so far for Brooklyn’s luxury market, as the borough saw 18 contracts signed for a total of about $53.6 million.

The properties were split between nine townhouses and nine condos, and they went for an average price of about $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 numbers were up from the week before, when the market saw 10 contracts signed for about $30 million.

The most expensive deal last week was for a condo at 325 Henry Street in Cobble Hill, which went for about $4.2 million. The four-bedroom unit spans about 2,200 square feet and includes private outdoor space and indoor parking.

The second priciest deal was a condo at 550 Vanderbilt Avenue in Prospect Heights, which went for $3.9 million. The three-bedroom unit spans 2,480 square feet.

Other deals last week included a townhouse at 538 Henry Street in Carroll Gardens for $3.85 million and a townhouse at 169 Washington Park in Fort Greene for $3.6 million. – Eddie Small
