About this property

  • Woodside” is a large 0.52-acre plot with 30 metre long private driveway leading off from the premier address that is The Saltings in Lelant. There was originally a large 6-bedroom two storey family house with double garage on the site which had been built in the early 1990's.

    There is a covenant on the site stating that only the original single dwelling (6 bed house) with usual outbuildings can be built which is what was there previously.

    The driveway runs from the Saltings between two properties and the plot nestles behind “House on the Water” with mature trees forming the border on three sides with Cornish hedging to one side and with the garden rising steeply to the rear.


    Mains Water (currently capped) Drainage & Electricity on site.
