The townhouse at 233 Warren Street in Cobble Hill went into contract less than a month after it hit the market, and the Observer reports that the sale closed yesterday for just over the $6 million asking price, setting a new record for the neighborhood.

Renovated by architect Joseph Tanney, 233 Warren was originally built in 1880, and it was featured in this year's City Modern home tours.
