The Price of 280 Square Feet on Marlborough Street

With a limited number of homes on this sought-after street, even small spaces are priced high.

In February of this year, Zillow quoted a median list price in the Back Bay of $1,200 dollars per square foot, but a coveted spot on Marlborough Street will always be the exception, and this 280-square-foot unit is listed at $399,000 dollars—putting the price per square foot at $1,425 dollars.

The parlor-level condo, part of a 1900s brownstone at 35 Marlborough Street, features a one-room living space with hardwood floors, crown moldings, and built-in shelving. In the listing, the kitchen area is described as “efficient,” featuring a microwave, sink, and small refrigerator. With high ceilings, a period marble fireplace and a sleeping area with classic bow-front windows, the home could be a good fit for anyone aiming to surround themselves with four walls of cozy victorian detailing.
