Description Hascot Hill Farm is a stunning Grade II Listed six bedroom farmhouse circa 1650 with Victorian extensions. The property enjoys a beautiful semi-rural location within the parish of Battisford approximately three to four miles west of Needham Market and stands proudly in its impressive grounds of approximately one acre (subject to survey) offering private gardens, pond, stable block and small paddock.

The heavily beamed character accommodation comprises: two front entrances, drawing room, living room, cloakroom, live-in kitchen (with dining area and sitting area), study, utility, bathroom, three first floor bedrooms, family bathroom and three further attic bedrooms.

The property further benefits from oil central heating, two fine fireplaces with inset log burning stoves, Aga kitchen and superbly well-presented spacious accommodation which radiates a homely inviting ambience.

Outside a gravelled driveway leads round to the front of the house which stands in beautiful well-tended private gardens. Within the grounds are a former garage, stable block with tack room, hay store and two loose boxes and focal pond over which weeping willows trail.

Beyond the formal gardens is a small meadow area with the total grounds extending to approximately just over an acre (subject to survey). 

About the Area Battisford is located approximately four miles from both Stowmarket and Needham Market, both of which offer a wide range of facilities including shops, schooling, health centres, places of worship and public libraries. At Stowmarket there is the Mid Suffolk Leisure Centre and a mainline rail link to London's Liverpool Street Station. The A14 trunk road offers access in the easterly direction to the A12 Ipswich and Felixstowe and in a westerly direction to Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge and the Midlands beyond. 

Directions Leave the A14 at junction 51 and follow Kettle Lane off the roundabout along the B1078 onto the High Street in Needham Market. Turn sharp left along the B1113 turning almost immediately right onto Barking Road. Continue past the doctor's surgery turning right opposite the 'Barking Forge' onto Hascot Hill where the property will be found on the left hand side just after 'Highflyers'. 

Vendors Statement "Hascot Hill Farm has been a lovely happy family home which has been a privilege to have owned over the last few years. It has so much character and a really welcoming ambience offering many period features, beams, ceiling height and light and airy rooms.

Our grandchildren have so enjoyed the private gardens particularly climbing the trees and swinging on the rope swing over the old pond. There are three attic rooms which again our grandchildren have claimed as their own for their regular overnight stays. It has also been the perfect house for entertaining with our favourite room being the magnificent live-in kitchen which is where everybody seems to congregate drawn by the Aga warmth and space this magical room seems to create. At Christmas we have sat 20 people around the large dining room table.

We will also miss watching the garden change over the seasons and all the tranquillity it provides. We have planted so many plants and shrubs to try and create something that always provides colour and interest. We hope the new owners of Hascot Hill Farm will be similarly encapsulated by its ambience and all that it has to offer."
