A Cobble Hill townhouse with an eight-figure price tag led Brooklyn’s luxury market last week. 

The home at 155 Warren Street, asking just under $13 million, was by far the borough’s priciest property to find a buyer between May 13 and May 19, according to Compass’ weekly report. 

The 25-foot-wide townhouse, built in the 19th century, spans 5,400 square feet and has six bedrooms and three bathrooms. It also features a carriage house, multi-car garage and backyard. 

Earlier this year, the property was offered as a rental asking $25,000 a month.  

Corcoran’s Sarah Adler had the listing. 

Home prices in Cobble Hill have skyrocketed since the pandemic, landing the neighborhood among the 10 most expensive in the city last quarter, according to a report by Property Shark. Cobble ranked 10th with a median sale price of $1.6 million, up 39 percent year-over-year.

Other properties in the neighborhood have also snagged double-digit million dollar deals, including a townhouse at 128 Pacific Street. The home — sold by Athena Calderone, the founder of lifestyle brand EyeSwoon, and her husband, music producer and DJ Victor Calderone — closed for $12 million, $8 million more than its purchase price. 

The second most expensive home to enter contract was 428 Clinton Street in Carroll Gardens, with a last asking price of $4.3 million. The 2,500-square-foot townhouse has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. 

The renovated home also features a backyard, cellar, original details and formal dining room. The property — which traded for $3.8 million in 2018 —  has drifted on and off the market since it was listed for $4.9 million in July 2023.

Serhant’s Steve Schaefer had the listing. 

Twenty-seven Brooklyn homes asking $4 million or more snagged signed contracts last week, up from 26 in the previous period. Of the total, 14 were condos, four were co-ops and nine were townhouses. 

The homes had an average asking price of $3.3 million, which works out to $1,556 per square foot. The properties spent an average of 139 days on the market with an average discount of 1 percent from the listing price.
