Welcome!

The Clare Estate was formerly the home of The Sisters of Poor Clare, a Roman Catholic order of nuns for over a century. A cloistered order, the nuns devoting themselves to silence, prayer, work, and sacrifice. ​

Referred by the sisters as the Monastery of St. Clare, the building was complete with a church, dormitory, refectory, library, crypt, and infirmary. The 10-acre property contained multiple gardens, a barn, and the nuns raised

The Clare Estate was formerly the home of The Sisters of Poor Clare, a Roman Catholic order of nuns for over a century. A cloistered order, the nuns devoting themselves to silence, prayer, work, and sacrifice. ​

Referred by the sisters as the Monastery of St. Clare, the building was complete with a church, dormitory, refectory, library, crypt, and infirmary. The 10-acre property contained multiple gardens, a barn, and the nuns raised goats, cows, and chickens. A wall was built around the entire property for privacy. In 1999, due to falling membership, the nuns sold the building to a family who envisioned the property as a senior living campus. This family still owns the property today and has turned it into a thriving senior living community.

The monastery has been restored and modernized while retaining its original Romanesque architecture and historic details, including beautiful stained glass mosaics, original windows, woodwork, and fixtures. The original library is still used as a library, the chapel, which was deconsecrated, serves as a dining room, and the gardens are maintained both by residents and staff.
