About Clare MacInnes

We are a family of 6! Children have all semi moved out and live in London and New York. We have lived in Inkpen for 11 years having rebuilt and completed our development project on the house between 2001 and 2003- very much a labour of love. We spend a lot of time outside in the garden and vegetable patch where we grow our own produce. The swimming pool area and tennis court are our real luxuries which we cherish, especially in the summer! This is our home and we love it- we hope you will too.

Clare MacInnes purchased this farmhouse in 2001

Why Clare MacInnes chose West Berkshire & Newbury

Glorious peace and quiet, surrounded on all sides by beautiful and immaculately kept and much loved garden. A sun trap in summer months - the back of the house - with the turquoise waters of the pool giving one the feeling of being in the South of France.

Only five minutes drive from the fabulous Combe Gibbet Hill, the views from which are unrivaled - you genuinely feel on top of the world ... and in the other direction the tranquility of the canal and renowned canalside pub the Dundas Arms.

There is another country pub called The Crown and Garter which is a 7 minute walk. This also has a gorgeous bakery/cafe where fresh coffee and breakfasts, lunches and teas are served every day or home baked cakes can be bought to have at home in the peace of the garden.

What makes this farmhouse unique

.

The fabulous kitchen / downstairs room that is the main space in the house - a wonderfully large room with wooden floor boards, wooden beamed ceiling - at one end the kitchen complete with aga and bar, then a large wooden table for the eating area and at the far end open brick fire place, television and sofa area. It is airy, spacious with natural light from 4 large windows and French windows onto the Garden .. the most perfect area for gathering the family

The peace and beauty of the area behind the house, sitting at the table with a cup of coffee listening to the bird song -
