Penhempton is a white farmhouse standing in open countryside south of Newtown. The surrounding lanes are perfect for riding and walking, and the gardens have mature shrubs and trees. Built in 1800, the house has remained remarkably unchanged and natural light floods the rooms. The green front door leads into an impressive hall, drawing room and conservatory, dining room and kitchen. Stairs ascend to four bedrooms all with beautiful views over the gardens, luscious flowerbeds, outbuildings and pony paddocks. Why Welsh wonderland. Why not Could use some modernising.
