If naked views of Brownstone Brooklyn and the Verrazzano Bridge are your thing, you just missed an opportunity at 11 Hoyt Street. And we do mean naked.

A buyer just signed a deal at the Tishman Speyer condominium tower for penthouse E, where the featured bathroom offers those sweeping vistas. The asking price of $5 million was the second highest among the 26 Brooklyn homes to go into contract last week, according to Compass’ weekly report.

The top-priced home to find a buyer was a renovated row house at 370 Eighth Street in Park Slope listed at $5.2 million. At 3,900 square feet, it has a large chef’s kitchen with abundant cabinet storage, an open dining area and parlor level with a floor-to-ceiling glass wall overlooking the garden.

The garden level has a media room and home gym. One bathroom has custom cement tiles and luxury finishes and the home has white oak hardwood floors throughout. It also has a landscaped garden with a Japanese maple tree.
