In 1781, Countess Terézia van Dernáthová built a classicist manor house on the site of an originally wooden building. She was the granddaughter of the last male descendant of the Druget family.

The two-storey mansion building with a rectangular ground plan and bay walls on the facade was a beautiful large mansion with many rooms – bedrooms, dining rooms, guest rooms, county salons, hall, kitchen, storage rooms.
