Full description

Birch House is a detached two storey traditional cottage extended and renovated to discerning standards. The property has oil fired central heating and hardwood double glazing throughout.  There are well fitted sanitary appliances to the kitchen, utility, shower and bathrooms.   In addition there are fitted floor coverings and light fitments to a good standard. The property can be moved into with the minimum of disturbance. 

Birch House enjoys a tranquil rural position on the Cornish flank of the River Tamar Valley, surrounded by farmland.  The nearby River Tamar offers excellent sea trout and salmon fishing, with stretches owned by the Launceston Angling Association with open membership.    

The property enjoys a pretty and direct country lane access for a major part of the route to nearby Launceston, which provides a full range of social, commercial and shopping facilities.

At Launceston, and alternatively Liftondown, there is access to the A30 dual carriageway spine road for Cornwall and Devon providing ease of access to all parts of the two counties.  To the east Exeter, (some 43 miles) provides intercity rail link, M5 motorway link and international airport.

In all directions from the property are areas of outstanding natural beauty.  The Tamar Valley continues southwards, and at its lower  reaches provides stunning hidden beauty steeped in 18th Century mining history.  The river empties into Plymouth Sound, famed for yachting facilities.  To the north of the property is the stunning North Cornwall and North Devon rugged coastline, with popular family beaches and quaint former fishing villages.  To the south west the wild open spaces of Bodmin Moor are ideal for walking and riding, and to the east is Dartmoor National Park.
