The Red House is a substantial six or seven-bedroom country residence, with gardens and grounds of approximately two acres, in the village of Hasketon, near Woodbridge.

The principal part of the house is from the Queen Anne period; but Edwardian additions have extended the accommodation to nearly 4,500 square feet. The Edwardian architecture has given the property light-filled rooms, generously proportioned with high ceilings.

The Red House is not listed, which enabled the current owners to undertake an extensive renovation and refurbishment project about 10 years ago. The property was completely re-roofed; new heating, hot water and electrics were installed, some of the rooms were re-configured and a shower room was added to the principal bedroom.

The result is a wonderfully spacious interior, in which traditional meets contemporary style. Large windows look out over the ground and some lovely features have been retained such as original parquet flooring, fireplaces and column radiators.

The hub of the house is the huge kitchen/living room with its double hob Aga and former fireplace containing a Nicholls & Clarke oven range as a feature. Also on the ground floor are the entrance hall, dining hall, drawing room, garden room, study/playroom, pantry, utility room and cloakroom.

On the first floor are the principal bedroom with en suite shower room, three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Up on the second floor there are three further double bedrooms.

Outside there are mature and established gardens and grounds, which adjoin and overlook parkland used for grazing. The grounds are mainly laid to grass for easy maintenance, interspersed with mature and established specimen trees.

Within the garden is the studio, with power and internet connected, and which could be utilised as a home office. There is also a former garage and timber store.

Hasketon is a very popular village, just a short distance from the market town of Woodbridge next to the River Deben. Woodbridge has an extensive range of shops, restaurants, pubs and recreational facilities, marina, as well as excellent schools and good rail links to London via Ipswich.
