Brooklyn’s luxury market seems to be shaking off its January slump.

For the second week in a row, the borough saw 21 signed contracts last week for homes asking $2 million or more, according to Compass’ weekly report. The total, recorded between Feb. 6 and Feb. 12, marked the largest number of deals since before the winter holidays.

Of the total deals, 12 were townhouses, eight were condos and one was a co-op.

The most expensive home to enter contract was a Brooklyn Heights condo asking $4.9 million. Unit 7A at 166 Montague Street spans 3,200 square feet and has five bedrooms and four full bathrooms. It features 11-foot ceilings and a balcony with views of the New York harbor.

Built in 1892 for the Franklin Trust, the building’s exterior includes terracotta stone engravings and its hallmark mansard roof. Among its amenities are a rooftop terrace with panoramic views of the city, fitness center and virtual doorman.

Corcoran’s Tita Omeze had the listing.
