Brownstoner ponders the per square foot cost of the townhouse for sale at 30 Orange Street:
Brownstoner: House of the Day: After 10 weeks on the market, the four-story brick house at 30 Orange Street in Brooklyn Heights just had its price reduced from $3,100,000 to $2,900,000. At first glance, this appears cheap for the neighborhood, until you realize that the house is only 30 feet deep. As a result, the square-foot count is only 2,400, putting the price-per-square-foot at about $1,200. We just posted a decent comp yesterday: The 2,344-square-foot brick house at 38 Cranberry recently closed for $2,700,000.
