Forbes magazine comes out with a list of what they consider the perfect “pied-a-terres”, in some of the best cities across the globe.

Boston is well-represented with a $2.3 million, 1700 square foot, two-bedroom, two-bathroom home in the Ritz Carlton Towers.

Huh? That doesn’t really count as an “in-town” getaway, even to the rich, does it?

To me, a pied-a-terre would be a one-bedroom, one bathroom 600 square foot condo in a new development, maybe in the $450,000 – $500,000 range – small enough to eliminate any maintenance or furnishing problems, but large enough to have a fair-sized bedroom and at least a reasonably-sized kitchen.

Just about every other property they showcase is priced in the millions of dollars, as well.
