BOSTON - Boston Realty Advisors, the largest Boston-based independent real estate brokerage, is exclusively representing the owners of the Residences at 263 Clarendon St., five recently renovated apartments in a historic building at the corner of Clarendon and Marlborough streets in the Back Bay, for sale.
“This is an exceptional address by every measurable standard,” said Kevin Benzinger, Director of Boston Realty Advisors’ Capital Markets Group. “The spectacular location offers residents an unimaginable living experience with the proximity to classic Boston amenities such as the Boston Public Garden and the Commonwealth Avenue Mall.”
The Residences at 263 Clarendon St. are being offered for sale on an unpriced basis. Tours of the property will be conducted in the near future, followed by a call for offers.
The Residences at 263 Clarendon St. include a studio, a one-bedroom, two two-bedroom, and one three-bedroom units. It is five floors and slightly over 7,000 square feet.
Renovation of the carefully crafted units over the last year was done with respect for the historic features of the red brick structure, maintaining high ceilings, restored crown moldings, original fireplaces, hardwood floors, and picturesque window lines.
The residences are conveniently located near shopping options along Newbury and Boylston streets and close to transportation modes including the MBTA’s Green and Orange lines, Commuter Rail and Amtrak. They are a short distance from many of Boston’s best restaurants and cafes and the retail attractions and the amenities of the Prudential Center.
Back Bay residential prices continue to be strong. Professionals in Boston’s consistently stable industries are a large part of the tenant base. The building’s apartments are fully occupied, with rents that have not been increased to keep up with the rebound in the apartment market following depressed numbers during the pandemic.
263 Clarendon was built for sale in about 1870 for contractor George Wheatland, Jr., one of four contiguous houses that form a single unit between Marlborough and Public Alley 423, according to the backbayhouses.com website. It was purchased in 1870 by banker and stockbroker Thomas Handasyde Perkins and his wife, Elizabeth Jones (Chadwick) Perkins. After having numerous owners through the decades, the building was purchased by its current owner in 2020, when it was assessed as a four- to six-family dwelling.
“This is truly an irreplaceable location and an exceptional address for residents to call home,” said Benzinger, “and a unique opportunity for an owner.”
