A substantial period detached house set in its own grounds offersing versatile family accommodation and a self contained annexe situated in a rural Vale of Glamorgan Village.

Flemingston is a small rural village situated in the sought after county of the Vale of Glamorgan. Central to the village is the Church of St Michael which is part of the parish of Cowbridge. The River Thaw flows to the east across Flemingston Moor; excavations on the moor have unearthed some pottery dated to the 12th-13th centuries.

The attractive historic market town of Cowbridge is approximately 3.5 miles to the north. The town is noted for its medieval origins and today offers a comprehensive range of leisure and domestic facilities in a most attractive setting with an eclectic mix of designer shops.

Communications are excellent with a good network of A roads leading to the the A48 and onto the M4. There are a number of footpaths in the village including the Millennium Path which links to the Glamorgan Heritage Coast Path.

Flemingston Grange is within the village which is a conservation area, This outstanding and unique character home has been created from traditional farm buildings with modern additions including a circular corner turrett. Over the years the property has been upgraded and extended to provide a very large family house with the added benefit of a self contained annexe which is part of the first floor accommodation with its own access and could be used to provide a separate rental income, subject to the usual statutory consents.
