Boston Properties: The Clarendon

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Boston

This week we continue our focus on Boston’s Back Bay with another ultra luxury development, The Clarendon.  This neighborhood has seen a recent surge in residential construction as discussed in other articles featuring the Residences at the Mardarin Oriental, the Arlington, and the proposed One Dalton Street at Christian Science Plaza.

 

The Clarendon went up in 2009 and has since redefined this corner block at 400 Stuart Street.  Anchored by popular restaurant Post 390, this 33-story tower is comprised of high-end rental apartments and condominium units.

 

Situated a mere few blocks from Copley Square and trendy Newbury Street, this limestone, brick and glass tower shimmers with elegance to both the visitor and the resident.  Condominium units begin on the 15th floor and continue upward, offering breathtaking views of the Charles River, the Fenway, downtown and Boston Harbor.

 

With 107 units in total, including three top floor penthouses, the Clarendon features one, two, three and four bedroom homes, which are completely separate from the rental complex.  Whether you are a young, city-living professional or someone looking to raise a family, this property leaves a myriad of options for the buyer.

 

In addition to the restaurant – which will deliver right to your door – other buyer-exclusive amenities include an exercise center featuring Lifestyle Fitness by Equinox, a private library and reading room known as the Assouline Culture Lounge, a clubroom with connecting outdoor, rooftop terrace, a business center, and garage parking beneath the building.  One other feature unique to the Clarendon takes families with children into consideration, offering a nautical-themed playroom specifically for kids.

 

Since opening, the building was awarded LEED Silver Certification with the U.S. Green Building Council, highlighting its commitment to the environment and energy conservation.  It reached the milestone of 100 percent capacity in August 2013, but currently a handful of units are back on the market for those seeking this sense of luxury living!

 

Homes at the Clarendon range from $795,000 to $4,150,000.  For more information on these or other properties, please contact agent Chris Remmes at 617-398-0018 or www.chrisremmes.com.
