Two townhouses topped Brooklyn’s luxury market in contract signings last week.

The priciest was 158 Prospect Place in Prospect Heights with a last asking price of $5.5 million, according to Compass’ weekly report on Brooklyn homes asking $2 million or more.

Built in 1870, the carriage house spans approximately 3,100 square feet with three bedrooms and two full baths. It has a gated driveway, a four-car garage, custom sliding glass doors that lead to a private garden, an open floor plan with exposed beams and a floating wood-burning stove, high ceilings of 15-foot and 20-foot ceiling heights and large double-paned windows.

The second priciest signed last week in the borough was 548 Second Street in Park Slope, with a last asking price of nearly $5 million.
