Agents Introduction 
Believed to date from the 1870's, Penbidwal House was built as a Gentleman's country residence by Isaiah Betram Roscher, known locally as an important landowner and businessman of his time and whose initials are carved into the front elevation. A most handsome property, Penbidwal House is of stone construction under a slate roof complemented by the original restored scalloped pierced bargeboards to the gables. Sitting in park-like gardens extending to approximately 1.1 acres boasting a veritable arboretum plus an abundance of flora and fauna, the gardens have been beautifully maintained and offer a great deal of seclusion and privacy and display interesting features such as a horse mount and what would have been the croquet lawn and grassed tennis court.
