The Red House will be found close to the centre of the highly desirable village of Hasketon.  Hasketon is a very popular village, which lies a short distance from the historic market town of Woodbridge on the banks of the River Deben. Woodbridge has an extensive range of shops, restaurants, public houses and recreational facilities along with an excellent Marina. 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 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 are scheduled to take just over the hour. There are also some direct services from Woodbridge to London each day. The Heritage Coast lies within about 13 miles with popular centres such as Orford, Aldeburgh, Thorpeness, Walberswick and Southwold.

Proceeding north along the Woodbridge A12 bypass, continue past the Shell garage, taking the third turning on the left into Manor Road. Take the next turning on the right where signposted to Hasketon and after approximately half a mile turn right onto a shingle drive that will lead you to The Red House.

The Red House comprises the principal part of a Queen Anne house, with Edwardian additions, that is beautifully presented throughout and extends to nearly 4,500 square feet.  The Edwardian architecture provided for incredibly light rooms of generous proportions coupled with excellent ceiling heights.  The Red House is not Listed, which allowed the vendors to undertake an extensive renovation and refurbishment project approximately ten years ago that comprised entirely re-roofing the property, new heating, hot water and electrical installations, re-configuring  some of the rooms and the installation of a shower room to the principal bedroom.  

Outside there are mature and established gardens and grounds that extend to approximately 2 acres in all.  The gardens, which adjoin and overlook the neighbouring parkland setting, which is used for grazing, are predominantly laid to grass for ease of maintenance, but interspersed with a number of 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 if required.
