The area's excellent communications include the nearby M3 which affords the driving commuter a straightforward journey to London, the A34 north to Newbury and Oxford, and the A303 to the West Country. Frequent main line rail services operate from Winchester to London Waterloo with journey times from 60 minutes. Andover also connects to London Waterloo in just over 1 hour.

Public schools include Winchester College, Marlborough College, St Swithun's and Godolphin in Salisbury.
Test Cottage is a good looking family home with origins believedto date back to the 17th Century. The property is positioned at the heart of the village of Chilbolton in Hampshire and sits
comfortably in its grounds of approximately 0.564 acres. The property has been meticulously modernised throughout with great attention to detail. Many original features have been carefully restored including pine cupboards, wardrobes, shutters and doors. The property is particularly well arranged for family living, including a well proportioned kitchen/breakfast room with an Alpha cooker and attractive range of floor and wall mounted units. There are three principal reception rooms on the ground floor providing good space for entertaining. The property has ample bedroom accommodation over the first and second floors, and there is also a games room providing excellent space for younger members of the family. The property has retained many of its period features including some attractive oak to the reception rooms, and tiles to the hallway and kitchen breakfast
room, giving this attractive home a wealth of character. In addition there is a brick built double garage with a playroom/ music room over and an original stable block.
The principal gardens lie predominantly to the rear of the property and are laid to lawn interspersed by some attractive mature trees including a fabulous magnolia. Towards the far end the gardens form an L-shape where there is a further area which has been planted with box hedge forming a rather attractive bed ideal for vegetables/herbs or general planting, beyond this is a further large expanse of lawn which is ideal for general recreation. At the end of this section of garden is an oak
gate leading on to The Common and towards the Church.
