This is 1 of 2 images, with title Pynes in this square
The south facade of Pynes, described by Pevsner as a "grand mansion built by Hugh Stafford (16741734), probably around 1700. It forms an excellent example of a double-pile William and Mary house that became popular after the Restoration, but relatively rare in Devon." It is listed grade II*. At the time of submission, a sales brochure for the house by Strutt & Parker was available on-line, which described it as "One of the finest Grade II* William and Mary houses in the South West of England"; sadly, the price was not stated. The work underway in the grounds, involving extensive landscaping, suggests that the house has now been sold.
