In the decade since Brooklyn's 14 Townhouses, which occupy much of State Street between Smith and Hoyt Streets, initially sold, the market for new townhouses in the borough has exploded—witness the proliferation of developments like Navy Green, King & Sullivan, and State + Bond for proof. But the 14 Townhouses, which were designed by Rogers Marvel Architects, are still there, and one of the units—281 State Street—is back on the market for $4.2 million. (For reference, it first sold in 2006 for $2.56 million, so that's quite a markup.) The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home has gotten a redo since it was last sold in 2011, but most of its original elements—the fireplaces, huge windows, glass-enclosed balcony, and roof deck—have remained the same.
