Brooklyn Heights penthouse tops luxury contracts

A penthouse at One Brooklyn Bridge Park claimed the top slot in Brooklyn’s luxury market last week.

The condo, last asking $6.5 million, was the priciest of 21 contracts inked in the borough last week for homes asking $2 million or more, according to Compass’ weekly report.

The apartment at 360 Furman Street, built in 1928, spans 3,400 square feet and has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. It features views of the harbor and Manhattan skyline, a 1,900-square-foot wraparound terrace and oak herringbone hardwood floors.

Amenities in Robert Levine’s 435-unit building include a gym, screening room, billiards room and drive-in parking garage. 

Compass’ Mark Blumenfeld had the listing. 

One Brooklyn Bridge Park was home to the city’s most expensive listing in 2015, when a 11,000-square-foot triplex owned by hedge funder Stuart Leaf and his wife hit the market for $32 million.

The Brooklyn Heights tower has also counted Elizabeth Stribling, whose brokerage was acquired by Compass in 2019, and former Brooklyn Nets player Thaddeus Young as buyers. 

The second most expensive home to find a buyer was 131 Lincoln Place in Park Slope, with an asking price of $6 million. The 4,000-square-foot townhouse, built in 1901 has five bedrooms and three bathrooms.

The four-story, 20-foot-wide home also features a garden, hardwood floors and central air conditioning. 

Corcoran’s Jessica Buchman had the listing. 

Park Slope townhouses are routine fixtures at the top of weekly market reports in the borough. A home at 416 7th Street, last asking $3.6 million, was the priciest to enter contract in the first week of October.

Of the 21 homes to enter contract, nine were condos, and 12 were townhouses. The total deals inked were on par with the 21 signed in the previous period. 

The average asking price was $3.4 million, or $1,304 per square foot. On average, the homes spent 212 days on the market and were priced at 5 percent less than their original listing price.
