Orbán Balázs wrote in 1860 that the building was a “vast and fortified castle, that today lies partially ruined and partially reconstructed”. In the 1870’s Máriaffy Albert commissioned a reconstruction and modification of the building, with a master mason from Marosvásárhely, Sóos Pál (1843-1910) overseeing the construction works.
Elek Benedek decided to repurchase the lands his parents sold for his education. Finally, on the twelve acres of land, which he got back from piece to piece, begun the construction of a dreamed manor (in 1896). The house was designed by a relative of his wife, the architect Richárd Poldesz, in a way as to offer accommodation for the family, grandchildren, friends and guests.
The building with a rectangular ground plan is perpendicular to the street and is made of stone and brick. The manor has five rooms and a porch. A pantry, a restroom and a drier was subsequently added to the northern side of the manor, this part is neglected today. A stall is also part of the estate, its northern side currently being used as a kitchen, which was built in the second half of the 19th century. According to its current owner, Sorbán Rozália, before World War II. the manor was bought from the Zathureczky family by Sántha Gyula and later in became the property of Sorbán József, originally from Zălan.
