UPDATED, April, 14, 2021, 10:52 a.m.: After a slightly slower week, Brooklyn’s luxury real estate market got a boost — driven, in part, by one pricey property going into contract.

Thirty contracts were signed last week for properties asking $2 million or more, with a total sales volume of $92.7 million. That’s up from 22 deals totaling $64 million the week before. Townhouses claimed the most expensive spots on the list, but more condos went into contract: There were 16 conjdo deals, 13 townhouse deals and just one co-op deal.

The most expensive property to go into contract was a five-bedroom, seven-bathroom townhouse at 271 Hicks Street in Brooklyn Heights. The 6,354-square-foot home was last asking $13.88 million, or $2,184 per square foot. It dates back to the 19th century but was recently renovated to conform to passive house standards, with triple-pane windows and fresh filtered air, among other eco-friendly perks.
