Brooklyn’s luxury market had a big week.

The borough saw 28 contracts signed from March 13 to March 19 for homes asking $2 million or more — the most of any week this year, according to Compass’ weekly report. Brooklyn’s luxury market has remained steady over the past two months, with weekly contract totals at 15 or above.

Park Slope homes, including a historic townhouse and a boutique condo, were the priciest to score deals. Seven of the 28 inked last week were for homes in the stroller-packed neighborhood.

Topping the list was a 6,500-square-foot brownstone at 312 Garfield Place with an asking price of $8.9 million. The 22-foot-wide townhouse, built in 1901, has five bedrooms and four bathrooms.

It was completely renovated with a rooftop deck, jacuzzi, sauna, home gym, and chef’s kitchen. Should the heat ever fail, it has eight working fireplaces.

Leslie J. Garfield’s Cameron LeCates had the listing.
