Based on the structure and few ornamental architectural features, it can be said that the actual manor house was built in the first half of the 19th century. The construction and the furnishing of the building can be linked back to Albert Petrichevich-Horváth who thanks to his loyalty to the Habsburg Court made a great career in the 1840–60s.

We know little about the Petrichevich family as land owners in Păsăreni. They do not figure as well-known proprietors of the 18th century, Albert Horváth (1800–1874) imperial chamberlain was the first known land owner here. It is very probable that the family had no estate here, so Albert Horváth was the first owner of this lot, by marrying baroness Zsuzsa Szentkereszti. According to the Habsburg Military Survey, at that time, there was already a smaller residency here.

The manor house has the plan characteristic to the Transylvanian Baroque manor house architecture, with a porch. It was built in the 19th century in Baroque style. The overhanging porch has three columns of the Tuscan order and two entrances with an arcade. It was named after the constructor Petrichevich-Horváth manor house, later became the property of sub-prefect László Sándor.
