Plandome Manor is a village in Nassau County, on the North Shore of Long Island, in New York, United States. The majority of the village is considered part of the Greater Manhasset area, which is anchored by Manhasset. The easternmost part of the village is more closely associated with Port Washington. The population was 872 at the 2010 census.
The Incorporated Village of Plandome Manor is in the Town of North Hempstead, and is the northernmost of the three Plandomes.
The Village of Plandome Manor incorporated in 1931. Like the villages of Plandome and Plandome Heights to its south, Plandome Manor derives its name from the Latin 'Planus Domus', meaning plain, or level home. The manor house of Matthias Nicoll who was an early mayor of New York City and among the first generation of the Nicoll family on Long Island, was a wood-frame home built in the 1670s, and one of the first homesteads in this area of Cow Neck, the namesake of the Cow Neck Peninsula (also known as the Manhasset/Port Washington Peninsula). The manor itself was torn down in 1998 and replaced with another estate.
Author Frances H. Burnett, author of The Secret Garden, built her home, Fairseat, in Plandome Park in 1908, and lived there until her death in 1924. Burnett's son, Vivian, and his wife Constance, had erected a home nearby on Bayview Road after their marriage. Following Frances Burnett's death, her nephew, publisher Archer P. Fahnestock moved into Fairseat, but the home burned down leaving only the stucco carriage house and garden intact. In 1940, Fahnestock sold it to Leroy Grumman.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the village has a total area of 0.6 square miles (1.6 km2), of which 0.5 square miles (1.3 km2) is land and 0.1 square miles (0.26 km2), or 13.56%, is water – including Leeds Pond in the northeastern part of the village.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the United States Geological Survey, the highest point in Plandome Manor is located at the Plandome Country Club's (and the village's) northeastern corner, at roughly 160 feet (49 m), and the lowest point is Manhasset Bay, which is at sea level.

Plandome Manor is primarily located with the boundaries of (and is thus served by) the Manhasset Union Free School District. However, most of the eastern portion of the village is served by the Port Washington Union Free School District. As such, students who reside within Plandome Manor and attend public schools go to school in one of these two districts, depending on where in Plandome Manor they live.
Plandome Manor is within the boundaries of the Manhasset Library District and the Port Washington Library District. The boundaries for these districts within Plandome Manor roughly correspond with those of the respective school districts.
Parks and recreation
Located within the village boundaries, taking almost a third of the village, is the private members club, Plandome Country Club. The club opened in 1931 as the Plandome Golf Club. The owner's purchased the land from the Leeds family, which owned a nearby estate. They originally intended to build a major residential development but changed the plans to instead build a golf course, in part due to the Stock Market Crash in 1929. Architect Orrin Smith was responsible for designing the golf course. The Plandome Golf Club became the Plandome Country Club in 1955. A major fire broke out in the clubhouse during a snowstorm during the night hours on December 23, 1958. The clubhouse was damaged beyond repair and was replaced with the current building around 1959. The new clubhouse was designed by architect Manoug Exerjian.
Also within the village is the Nassau County-maintained Leeds Pond Preserve, which is home to the Science Museum of Long Island.
The Plandome station on the Long Island Rail Road's Port Washington Branch is the nearest train station to the village. It is located primarily within the adjacent village of Plandome, with the northern extremes of the platform being within Plandome Manor. There is a parking lot at the station reserved exclusively for Plandome Manor residents, and a walkway exists between the station and Circle Drive.
Plandome Manor is located primarily within the boundaries of the Manhasset–Lakeville Water District, although a small portion of the easternmost section of the village is within the boundaries of and is served by the Port Washington Water District.
