The most expensive townhouse that went into contract last week is big, even by Brooklyn standards.

Thirty-five homes in the borough asking over $2 million went into contract last week, according to Compass’ weekly report. Of those, 18 were condos and 17 were townhouses.

The total of those asking prices was $108 million, up from $97.5 million the week before.

A 10,000-square-foot townhouse at 280 Washington Avenue in Clinton Hill topped the list. The four-story home last had an asking price of $9.2 million, or $920 per square foot.

The seven-bedroom, five-bathroom house sits on a 200-foot full block lot and features stained glass windows, a home theater and a temperature controlled wine cellar. It was built in 1887 and has since been restored.

A 6,900-square-foot townhouse at 104 Prospect Park West in Park Slope was the second highest contract signed last week. It was priced at $6.5 million, or $943 per square foot. The early 20th century home has five bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Across all deals, the average discount dropped slightly to 3 percent last week and the median asking price was about $2.7 million. The average price per square foot was $1,222.
