Hasketon Grange is well placed for access into Woodbridge, a popular sailing centre located on the west bank of the river Deben, a stretch of tidal water much enjoyed by those who sail. The town offers a very good array of facilities catering for everyday needs and these include independent retailers trading alongside the national names, a variety of restaurants, two hotels, medical facilities, a library, swimming pool and a railway station with services running through to Ipswich, Suffolk's County town. Frequent connections then terminate at London's Liverpool Street station.
For more local shopping needs Grange Farm shop is close to the property and is noted for its variety of local produce. There is also a Tea Room, Country Clothing shop, dried and silk Flower shop and antiques shop. The proximity of the Suffolk Heritage Coastal Area is a particular attraction with Aldeburgh,
Thorpeness and Southwold further north within comfortable travelling distance. The Snape Maltings Concert Hall is equally accessible and is home to the internationally famous Aldeburgh Music Festival.
There are good opportunities to play sport in the surrounding district with golf courses both inland and on the coast and sailing on the tidal rivers Deben, Alde and Orwell. A variety of clubs cater for numerous interests. There are many appealing walks and rides within the picturesque Suffolk countryside.
Hasketon Grange is a substantial period property appropriately listed as a Grade II building of special architectural or historic interest. Formerly a farmhouse, it is understood to have its origins in the XVII Century, adapted and enlarged in the XVIII and late XIX Centuries. Hasketon Grange has been sympathetically restored by the current owners bringing the property up to date but without detracting from the original character.
The drawing room is a particularly fine room, part with a beamed ceiling and with a massive inglenook fireplace to one end of the room providing a natural focal point. The kitchen has been re-fitted in the traditional farmhouse style with bespoke units and there is a particularly spacious utility room which has been similarly fitted. In addition, on this level there are rooms for dining, music and books as well as a generous study and a small cellar for wine created beneath one of the two staircases.
The first floor accommodation has benefited particularly by the introduction of new bath and shower rooms, the clever positioning enabling an en-suite facility to more than one room.
On the second floor there is an attic bedroom, the store room beyond being of a similar size but not yet developed into part of the accommodation.
The property sits within mature and well stocked grounds extending to about 0.94 acres subject to survey.
The main area of garden stretches away behind the house and includes a pond and bog garden alongside the terrace with well stocked beds beyond, outlined by clipped box hedging. A beech hedge separates the formal garden from an orchard area and to one side of this there is a hard tennis court.

The garden, grounds and tennis court extend in all to about 0.94 acres subject to survey. The approach is through a painted metal five bar gate which opens onto the gravelled drive.
The house is set back from Grundisburgh Road behind a lay-by with a pedestrian gate set within the clipped hedge with a lawn behind and path to the front door. The main area lies appropriately behind the property and has been thoughtfully planted and maintained by the current owners.
There is a paved and brick terrace across the rear of the house, the lawn beyond fringed with flower, shrub and herbaceous borders and with a wide grassed walkway leading through further well stocked borders with a pond to one side, a natural bog garden on the other and with clipped box hedges defining the edge of the borders which are well stocked with shrubs, flowers and rose arches on either side.
A beech hedge separates the more formal garden from the orchard beyond. The orchard contains a variety of fruit trees including apples, plum and walnut. Set to one side of the orchard and within a high netting surround is the hard tennis court with a timber and felt roofed garden store closeby. There is a further shed close to the conservatory.
We understand that mains electricity and water are connected to the property. Drainage to a private drainage system shared with The Grange Studio. Heating from the Thermecon oil boiler. There is also a water softener at the property.
