A BARN conversion to be proud of, Woodlands, in rural Wilmingham Lane, has been sympathetically enhanced with the magnificent use of timber throughout.

This solid, sprawling structure also retains a large proportion of the original stone barn, dating back to the 1800s.

A fully glazed entrance hall, with a galleried landing above, delivers the immediate wow factor and your eyes are drawn to the handsome wooden staircase, which separates the music room from this area.

Elegant oak flooring extends from the entrance hall into the music room and separate dining room, which has internal glazing to introduce plenty of natural light.

A further large reception room incorporates a wood burner, exposed beams and quaint brick recesses (ideal for candles or low lighting), which add plenty of country charm.

The former Victorian dairy has been transformed into the family kitchen/breakfast room, with a mezzanine area (bedroom three or a study) reached by a spiral staircase.

There is a range of base units and a beautiful fitted dresser, as well as a handy walk-in larder.

A large utility room, with access to the groundfloor bathroom, is adjacent to the kitchen.

The bathroom features a bath with shower over, and serves bedroom three — perfect for guests.

Both bedrooms one and two are very spacious rooms with beautiful, high vaulted ceilings, fitted wardrobes and contemporary en-suite facilities — one with a bath and the other with a large, corner shower cubicle.

The master bedroom benefits from stunning views overlooking open fields towards Yarmouth harbour and The Solent.

Outside there is a gated and gravelled driveway, providing extensive parking. There is also a detached barn, 37ft in length, ideal for boat storage, a workshop, or even additional accommodation, subject to relevant permissions.

The delightful gardens include a paved and decked area (ideal for summer barbecues), an attractive Victorian-style greenhouse and an expanse of lawn with bordering mature shrubs and trees.
