A historic Clinton Hill townhouse clinched the top spot in Brooklyn’s luxury market last week.

The home at 298 Dekalb Avenue, last asking $6 million, was the priciest in the borough to find a buyer between Dec. 4 and Dec. 10, according to Compass’ weekly report on high-priced properties. 

The renovated brownstone was one of 18 properties asking $2 million or more to go into contract last week. The total was down from the 20 contracts inked in the previous period.

The 20-foot-wide townhouse, built in 1876, spans 3,500 square feet and has five bedrooms and four bathrooms. It also features a sky-lit staircase, chef’s kitchen, floor-to-ceiling glass windows and landscaped garden.

Compass’ Joshua Wesoky had the listing. 

Homes in Clinton Hill rarely top weekly contract reports in the borough, though some with lofty asking prices have snagged contracts. Last July, a historic townhouse at 144 Saint James Place entered into contract with an asking price of $5.3 million.

The second most expensive home to find a buyer was Unit 2 at 362 State Street in Boerum Hill, with an asking price of $5 million. The 2,700-square-foot apartment in a just-converted townhouse has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. 

It also features floor-to-ceiling windows and a private outdoor terrace with views of the skyline. Amenities in the three-unit building built in 1901 include a virtual doorman and porter service.  

Park Property Advisors’ Carlos Saavedra had the listing. 

Another Boerum Hill townhouse recently landed among the borough’s priciest contracts. In the last week of October, a buyer signed a contract for 82 Dean Street, last asking $7 million. The former Navy boarding house was built in 1920 and renovated in 2017. 

Of the 18 contracts signed, nine were for condos, one was for a co-op and eight were for townhouses. 

The average asking price was $3.2 million with an average price per square foot of $1,402. The homes spent an average of 170 days on the market and had an average discount of 1 percent from their original listing price.
