43. I found one similar in size to your "upper-end, but not ritzy"
1,700 square feet - in my town and it was $350,000. But, it was built in 1953 vs 2001 for yours, which is a big difference.

This 1,700 does not include a basement, or the 2 car garage, though.

The town I live in is considered one of the more expensive in the Hartford, CT area, but it's far cheaper than areas of CT that are closer to NYC. We do have excellent public schools, though.
