One of the most significant buildings of the Mikes family, the manor from Zágon already existed in the 17th century, as indicated by an inscription in one of the beams, which includes the year number 1632, and the initials B:M and E:D. Mikes Kelemen was born here; this is supposedly proved by an inscription which was added during reconstructions at the beginning of the 20th century.
The mansion was built in the center of the estate, its courtyard has been transformed into a nice park at the turn of the 20th century, but it was destroyed almost totally after its nationalization. The park’s successful restoration started again after the 1970s. At the right corner of the house, there is a famous linden tree, which was said to be planted in 1882 in the presence and in honour of the great Hungarian writer, Jókai Mór.
The simple, single-story edifice was built in the late 19th century. Its main facade is determined by three risalits. The middle risalit is located in the symmetry axis of the building and a few steps are leading to the main entrance situated in the centre of the building part with three-axis. The corner risalits have two axis and the paired jack arched windows are surrounded by semicircular plaster decorations. All three risalits are closed by a triangular gable. A few crumbling stone steps are leading from the facade facing the former park to the wooden terrace. The once charming little terrace's elements are rotting, its windows are missing, as are the windows of the building's rare facade.
