This is a delightful character cottage, formerly part of the Chilworth Estate and situated in Chilworth Old Village. This picturesque location forms part of a conservation area and is home to a range of other historic buildings.

The cottage itself is believed to have origins dating back to the 1500s with later additions. As expected for a property of this age the property boasts a wealth of character features by way of exposed ceiling beams and cross timbers, original latch doors, stripped floorboards and the fabulous inglenook fireplace which creates the focal point for the sitting room.

On the ground floor there are three good sized reception rooms and a fully fitted kitchen featuring a slate tiled floor, butler sink, granite work tops and integrated appliances including a fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and microwave There is a further looby area from the kitchen leading to the front of the property and leading to the cloakroom.

On the first floor there is a split landing leading to the three bedrooms all of which feature skilling ceilings and two of which benefit from built in wardrobes. All bedrooms are served by the family bathroom on this level.

Externally the property is approached by a gravel drive leading to the front of the property. There is an area of garden to the front incorporating a small fish pond, a sloping area of lawn and a variety of shrubs. The driveway continues to the side of the property leading to the detached garage which benefits from a cloakroom and a converted loft room above. The rear garden is largely laid to lawn with a block paved patio area immediately adjacent to the house. The garden offers a high degree of privacy being well screened to all sides by mature shrubs and trees, including a Walnut tree after which the property is named.

Chilworth Old Village is a small enclave of on the western edge of Chilworth with a suprisingly rural feel despite being only around five miles from Southampton city centre and just a mile or so from the M3/M27 road networks. The area offers a village green, tennis court and a church. There is also a well reputed public house nearby along with a golf course. Local amenities can be found in North Baddesley whilst more comprehensive facilities can be found at neighbouring centres of Chandlers Ford, Romsey and of course Southampton city centre. Southampton also provides a mainline train station and nearby Southampton airport provides for internal and international flights.
