Historic townhouses once again dominated Brooklyn’s luxury market.

Homes in Brooklyn Heights and Clinton Hill were the priciest to find buyers in the borough last week, according to Compass’ weekly report. 

A total of 20 contracts were signed for Brooklyn homes asking $2 million or more between Dec. 11 and Dec. 17, up from 18 inked in the previous period

The most expensive property to enter contract was 150 Henry Street, with an asking price just under $8 million. The renovated townhouse, built in 1830, spans 5,500 square feet and has seven bedrooms and three bathrooms. 

The 24-foot-wide brownstone also features original decorative moldings, as well as a deck and garden. 

Compass’ Barbara Wilding had the listing.

Brooklyn Heights homes are a staple in the borough’s luxury market. Penthouses and townhouses in the neighborhood regularly rank among the priciest Brooklyn homes to find buyers. A three-bedroom apartment at 360 Furman Street, last asking $6.5 million, was the most expensive to enter contract in mid-November.

The former carriage house also features a landscaped roof terrace and rear garden.

Compass’ Nick Gavin and Allison Fraza had the listing.

Last week, a renovated brownstone at 298 Dekalb Avenue, last asking $6 million, was the most expensive home in Brooklyn to find a buyer. 

Of the 20 contracts inked, 13 were for townhouses and 7 were for condos. 

The average asking price was $3.5 million with an average price per square foot of $1,258. The homes spent an average of 150 days on the market and had an average discount of 2 percent from their original listing price.
