A Brooklyn, New York, penthouse is under contract for $US20 million – and if the deal closes, it will be on track to shatter the record for the most expensive home ever sold in the borough.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the current record is held by a Cobble Hill townhouse that sold for $US15.5 million back in 2015.

Located in Quay Tower, the penthouse in question is actually two units that are being combined into a single unit, reports Curbed New York.

As Andrew Anderson of Douglas Elliman Development Marketing, which is handling sales at Quay Tower, told Business Insider, “No other property in Brooklyn or New York City has this combination of ultra-high-end interiors and amenities paired with absolutely mesmerising views of New York Harbour, the Downtown skyline and East River all the way beyond the Empire State Building.”
