On the open market for the first time in many years, Le Cateau is an individual detached house offering extensive accommodation and a wonderful garden. Thought to date from 1950s, the property stands on a plot extending to 0.4 of an acre which is privately enclosed and well-established with a wide expanse of lawn at the rear, mature planting and boundaries and an ornamental pond. A wide, gated tarmacadam driveway provides extensive parking and access to a large detached double garage built in a similar style to the house.

Despite its large plot, the property is situated in a well-established and highly-coveted location backing onto the lower slopes of Wolborough Hill and within half a mile’s walk of the Clock Tower in Newton Abbot’s vibrant and well-served town centre. Within a stone’s throw is the Natural Trust’s Bradley Manor, its wonderful paths along the riverbank ideal for dog walkers with Baker’s Park immediately adjoining with its play area/café/tennis courts and sports pitch a further benefit for family buyers.


The accommodation, which has been significantly enlarged in the past, has some lovely features and has clearly been loved and cared for over the years, does now offer tremendous potential for a degree of remodelling and updating, providing opportunity for the lucky new owner to create a spectacular home in a convenient and sought-after location. On the ground floor, an entrance vestibule provides access into a spacious reception hallway with turning staircase to the first floor, double-aspect windows at first floor level providing plenty of light and solid wood block flooring which runs through the majority of the main ground floor accommodation. Off the hall is a cloakroom with WC and basin. There are three separate reception rooms, two of which are interconnecting with twin-glazed doors and an eat-in kitchen with plenty of space for a dining table and chairs. Ground floor extras include a walk-in pantry, side lobby with door to outside, utility cupboard, gardener’s toilet and store/boiler cupboard. On the first floor, there are four roomy double bedrooms and two full bathrooms.

Wonderful established and privately enclosed plot extending to approximately 0.4 of an acre.

Gated driveway providing extensive parking and access to a detached double garage.
