SITUATION The village of Flemingston is often referred to as one of the Vale of Glamorgan's best kept secrets - a pretty village of well converted barns and cottages together with individually designed period and modern houses, many of which enjoy open views from elevated sites. Flemingston is a rural community with convenient access to the nearby towns of Cowbridge and Llantwit Major and also to the local shopping facilities at the village of St. Athan. The Vale of Glamorgan offers a good range of leisure and country pursuits. The Town of Cowbridge includes schools of good reputation, a range of quality shops, public library, health centre, leisure centre and various sporting clubs. The heritage coastline lies to the south with its beautiful cliff top walks and mixture of stony and sandy beaches.  

DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY Located to the heart of this underrated village, Greystones is a unique conversion of a former farm building, including as it does the original arched openings painstakingly reconstructed. The resemblance to a farm building ends here, with the spacious interior offering characterful accommodation that must be viewed to be fully appreciated. Flanking an entrance hallway are the two principal reception rooms. The larger of the two rooms - a living room - has exposed beams and is open to the pitch of the roof. Two windows look from here over the front courtyard and catch views over the upper Thaw valley to the distance. From here, a connecting door opens into the fitted kitchen. A further door opens into a useful utility room; the front garden is also accessible via a stable door from the kitchen. The lounge, the second reception room to the south of the entrance hallway, has solid oak flooring like the principal living room and is a cosy room the focal feature of this is an impressive, curving fireplace with gas fire within. Again, two windows look over the front courtyard; and from here a door connects to the bedroom accommodation. The largest of the bedrooms includes built in wardrobes and an en suite wc with basin. A second double also includes fitted storage while the third has painted stone walling open up to the pitch of the roof. A fourth bedroom is currently used as a study and connects into a conservatory, position to look over the largest portion of garden. It looks upon the lawn with its surrounding cottage-garden beds; and has doors giving access to the terrace. All these bedrooms have use of a family bathroom with bath and separate shower. There is, in addition, a further cloakroom off the hallway.  

GARDENS AND GROUNDS From a lane frontage, a section of driveway, shared with 3 properties in total, leads to Greystones. A broad, gated entrance opens up into the tarmac-topped parking area for the property itself. This continues to the large garage (approx. max 6.5m x 4.6m) and is accessed via an electric up and over door. It has power connected and offers much storage space. The generous parking space, in turn, has steps leading, over a flag-stone paved terrace, to the principal entrance doorway and also to a second door into the kitchen. A gated entrance leads to a very pretty lawned garden surrounded by mature flower and shrub beds and further sheltered seating areas. The conservatory overlooks the same. 

TENURE AND SERVICES Freehold. Mains electric, water and gas connect to the property. Cess pit drainage. 

DIRECTIONS From our Cowbridge office, turn right at traffic lights onto the St Athan Road and continue along this road towards St Athan.

Enter into the village and drive through, passing the village Church and telephone box and taking the second right turning, almost at the edge of the village.
