The Clare

City Living With the Room to Grow

Prepare for something distinctly different. The Clare stands out from the DC crowd, with a cool blend of sophistication and modern chic in Petworth. The Clare boasts six units, with two and four bedroom homes at an especially attractive price for the city.

Each home is well appointed with such features as floor-to-ceiling windows for brilliant natural light, a contemporary open layout, walk-in closets, Juliet balconies, and parking available. The finishes are equally striking with stainless steel appliances, slate grey floors and contemporary shaker cabinets, and statuario tile and dual vanities.

The Clare is a unique “find” in Northwest DC — a stylish home for young couples with children, or singles and couples just starting out.

The landscape was engineered to promote air quality, reduce storm water runoff, utilize native plants, promote nutrient cycling and keep the city cooler.

  • This home’s landscape was meticulously designed to improve air quality, reduce stormwater runoff, and keep the city cooler.
  • Majority native plants assist increase nutrient cycling and require minimal maintenance, reducing applications of toxic fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides.
  • Generous soil depth (at least 24” deep), selective and abundant utilization of native trees and shrubs, and permeable pavement minimize stormwater waste, reducing urban contaminants to streams and rivers. These improvements also minimize the heat island effect, increase evaporative cooling, and result in noise reduction, habitat creation and increased biodiversity.
