Newham was purchased by the current owners in 1976, and subjected to a refurbishment at that time under the supervision of a well known chartered surveyor.  The property has period proportions and many character features internally and externally.  These include rag slate roof, sash timber windows, exposed beam ceilings and structural timber and large stone open fireplace.

Newham sits on the Cornish bank of the River Tamar in a secluded rural setting, yet convenient to the market town of  Launceston and the A30 dual carriageway spine road for the two counties.  The property is set down a rural cul-de-sac lane shared with no other residential properties, but nonetheless council maintained.  The social, commercial and shopping facilities of Launceston town centre are within easy  reach.   To the south Plymouth (28 miles) provides an inter-city rail link and continental ferry port.  To the east the Cathedral city of  Exeter (42 miles) provides the M5 Motorway link, intercity rail link (Paddington just over two hours), and expanding international airport.  In all directions from Launceston there is scenery of outstanding natural beauty.  To the north is the rugged north Cornish coastline  famed for  popular family surfing beaches ,and picturesque former fishing  villages.  To the west are the open expanses of Bodmin Moor, ideal for walking and riding.  To the east is Dartmoor National Park, and to the south are the hidden secrets of the Tamar Valley steeped in 18th Century mining history running out into Plymouth Sound with all its yachting facilities.
