Like its neighbor at 137, this house was also central to the student street party known as “Livingstock”. From the 1960s to the 1990s, the front yard was where the bands played for the annual “Livingstock” street party, a student organized event that drew thousands for a day to celebrate the end of the academic year. This little 4 bedroom home was the center of organization for this event, which sadly was discontinued in 1999, and was eventually replaced by Mayfest. 131 Clarendon is on the smaller side, but is closer and cheaper than many other options, so it’s worth a look. 131 Clarendon also has an enormous separate 1 bedroom apartment built onto the back of the home, which is perhaps one of the largest 1 bedroom options in the whole university neighborhood.
“Whenever I email for repairs John and the team are so responsive, and any other questions I have “I couldn’t have asked for a better landlord in my first year living off campus. Ben and staff are incredibly attentive, responsive and helpful. They are a great and trustworthy group of people who care deeply about their properties and tenants.”– M. Fitzgerald, 2020 tenant at 860 Livingston
