Set proudly behind a sweeping driveway and lawned garden, Pine Manor is an elegant DETACHED HOUSE affording a wealth of character and charm. Walking through the beautiful oak entrance door into the impressive reception hall, you are immediately drawn into the striking drawing room with two ornate fireplaces housing warming log burners as centre pieces.  Our clients have secured planning permission to further enhance the house incorporating a kitchen extension, loft conversion with balcony, and formation of a new garage with home office over.

Pine Manor occupies an enviable position in the very heart of the English Riviera, with wide range of amenities, leisure activities, and beautiful scenery all easily accessible. Just a short, virtually level saunter are local shops, with Preston Green and Preston Sands Beach beyond where the picturesque South West Coast Path heads south toward Paignton Sands, Roundham Head, Goodrington, and Brixham, or north toward Torquay.
