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 original manor house was built at the beginning of the 18th century. However, we do not have many information about that building. The most important owner of the estate was Baron György Szentkereszty (1840-1932). The old manor was rebuilt in the 19th century, and what we see today, it is its form acquired after the reconstructions.
