In the second half of the 19th century, the castle and the estate were bought by Várady Szabó Lajos, a merchant from Debrecen, who had fallen in love with the castle and its surrounding landscape many years before. (We can read about this in the family-novel, written by Szentmihályné Szabó Mária: Work belongs to man, blessing belongs to God.)
The manor was built by the best masters of that time. The manor – in terms of its ground plan – can be placed among the 18th century's manor-houses of Transylvania. Its rectangular ground floor reflects the influence of folk architecture. The manor-house, which has a cellar under the atrium, contains more rooms, a dining room, bedrooms, kitchen and restrooms. There is an open porch, supported by pillar, in front of the building.
