At $6.4 million, a Cobble Hill townhouse was the priciest residential deal to go into contract in Brooklyn last week.

The 3,720-square-foot home at 94A Amity Street has four bedrooms and an elevator connecting all five of its floors. It went for 7 percent above its asking price.

Overall, Brooklyn saw 18 contracts signed for $2 million or more last week: nine houses, eight condos and one co-op, according to the latest report from Compass.

The average price of those contracts was about $2.9 million, and the total volume was about $52.1 million. The properties spent an average of 236 days on the market and sold at an average of 3 percent less than the asking price. Both numbers are up from the week that included Christmas, when nine contracts for high-end homes were signed for about $24.1 million.

The second priciest deal to go into contract, at about $6 million, was for a co-op at 35 Prospect Park West in Park Slope. The four-bedroom unit spans about 3,400 square feet and went for 4 percent below its asking price.

Other notable Brooklyn deals last week included a townhouse at 170 Garfield Place in Park Slope for $3.4 million and a condo at 78 Amity Street in Cobble Hill for $2.75 million.
