Townhouses snagged the top deals in Brooklyn last week.

Single-family homes notched the borough’s priciest contracts signed between Feb. 27 and March 5, according to Compass’ weekly report on residences asking $2 million or more.

The most expensive to go into contract was 77 Prospect Place in Park Slope, which was asking $6 million. The 5,300-square-foot townhouse has three bedrooms and three bathrooms.

It features 1,000 square feet of outdoor space, heart of pine flooring, 15-foot ceilings, a 30-foot-long skylight, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and an eat-in kitchen with an island.

Serhant’s Matthew Scott had the listing.

The second most expensive home to find a buyer was 355 President Street in Carroll Gardens, with an asking price of $5.3 million. The recently-renovated townhouse spans 3,800 square feet and has four bedrooms and four bathrooms.

It comes with a newly built carriage house, chef’s kitchen, 30-foot-deep front yard, private courtyard and marble fireplaces.

Corcoran’s Deborah Rieders had the listing.

Of the 18 contracts signed last week for luxury Brooklyn homes, 11 were for townhouses and seven were for condos. The average asking price was $3.4 million and the average price per square foot was $1,252. The homes spent an average of 155 days on the market and had an average discount of 7 percent from their original listing price.

Brooklyn’s luxury market rebounded in February after a slow start to the year. Throughout January, the weekly contract total never exceeded 15 and dipped to single digits twice. But numbers began picking up last month with some weekly contract totals cracking 20. The 18 luxury deals inked last week were three more than the week before.

Home-buying activity has been higher in the borough over the past four months than pre-pandemic. In February, the number of new signed contracts in Brooklyn increased month-over-month, though new listings continued to decline, according to a Miller Samuel Report for Douglas Elliman.
