The property is situated in a corner position within a favoured residential close on the outskirts of this popular village. Chilbolton has a Post Office/store, church, village hall and public house. A second public house ‘The Mayfly’ sits on the bank of the River Test and is within walking distance, as is the Test Way. There are many charming walks from the door to West down and Chilbolton Common – a designated Area of Special Scientific Interest and a renowned local beauty spot particularly noted for its rich flora and traversed by the River Test. West Down, also a short walk away, is ideal for dog walking. There is a reputable primary school in the neighbouring village of Wherwell, approximately 1½ miles away, and the picturesque town of Stockbridge is some four miles distant. Andover, also four miles away, offers a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities, as well as a mainline railway station providing fast services to Waterloo. The cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury are about 15 and 25 minutes’ drive respectively, and the A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London and the West Country.
