Master bedroom with en-suite shower room, three further bedrooms and family bathroom. Traditional Suffolk barn with garage, workshop, stabling and stores. Established and very private gardens and grounds extending to approximately 6 acres in all. 

Location Although located in the Parish of Hasketon, High House is closer to Woodbridge, with the town centre and Market Hill only approximately half a mile away. Woodbridge has an extensive range of shops, restaurants, public houses and recreational facilities along with an excellent yacht club. There is also a good choice of schooling in both the private and state sectors. The Abbey Preparatory School and Woodbridge School are both located in the town and Hasketon falls within the catchment area of the renowned Farlingaye High School.

The pretty and popular village of Hasketon is one mile to the north with a well supported church and soon to be re-opened public house, The Turks Head. The property has easy access to the A12, which provides largely dual carriageway driving to London and the south. The County Town of Ipswich, with a further choice of good schooling in both the state and private sectors as well as a good range of shopping and recreational facilities, including its popular marina area, is about 8 miles to the south-west and from here there are fast Inter-city rail services to London's Liverpool Street station, which take just over the hour. There are also some direct services from Woodbridge to London each day. The Heritage Coast lies within about 12 miles with popular centres such as Orford, Aldeburgh, Thorpeness, Walberswick and Southwold. 

Description High House is a delightful period property, which sits centrally within its own gardens and grounds of approximately 6 acres, in a very private area on the outskirts of Woodbridge. Although not an extensive or rambling property, the principal reception rooms and bedrooms are impressive in size and proportion. Sitting so centrally within its own plot there is tremendous potential to extend and reconfigure the accommodation should a purchaser so wish.

Standing a short distance away is the traditional Suffolk barn, which retains almost all of its original features, and this has been extended over the years to provide garaging, workshop, stables and storage facilities. It also provides scope, to provide ancillary accommodation to the main house, a holiday let or B&B facility, or a work from home facility, subject to the necessary consents.

The gardens and grounds are delightful, and are almost fully enclosed and screened from the surrounding countryside by tree belts and established hedging, and this provides a great deal of privacy. There are numerous specimen trees, including established beech and walnut trees as well as a large pond and enclosed paddock area. In all, the gardens and grounds extend to approximately 6 acres.

Outside High House is set well back from the road approached via a tarmac and pea shingle driveway which leads up to the parking and turning area immediately in front of the house.

The gardens to the front are quite extensive, but predominantly laid to grass for ease of maintenance. A substantial beech tree makes for an impressive central feature, beside which is the pond. Beyond the gardens and pond is a bank of established trees, within which there is a meandering pathway, which encloses the gardens and provides a good deal of privacy.

The main driveway continues past the front drive and onto the Suffolk barn and outbuilding at the rear. The barn measures approximately 51' x 16' overall and is still very much in its original form, with the original brick flooring to part and exposed roof trusses and wall timbers. Adjoining the barn to the rear are the stables, with doors opening onto the rear paddock. Adjoining the front of the barn is a garage, workshop and stores.

The formal gardens continue to the side of High House. Again, laid to grass for ease of maintenance, these can be accessed via the Garden Room. An established walnut tree forms the centre piece of this area, with gates opening into a walled garden. Originally used as a croquet lawn serving the main house, this area is also laid to grass. Here there is also a small patio, with a gate providing access to a courtyard area and additional gardens. This area is fully enclosed, partly within brick walling and close boarded fencing and from here access can be gained to the boot room via the rear door. A gate from this area opens into the former kitchen garden, also laid to grass, from where access can be gained to the paddock area. Fully enclosed, this paddock area extends to just over an acre, and can be incorporated within the formal gardens or used for horses or livestock. From here, access can be gained to the stables attached to the rear of the barn.

The grounds continue to the west, where there is an additional area of amenity land which could serve as an additional paddock. This area extends to approximately 1.25 acres.
