On the bank of River Pärnu, lies one of the most exclusive private estate’s in Estonia, the Staelenhof Manor. The Neo-Renaissance building was originally constructed in 1852, impeccably renovated in 2015, and now offers more than 837 square meters of marvellous living space and more than 7 hectares of ancient manor lands.
The ten-bedroom historical residence is an architectural wonder. One of a kind manor tower connects three levels, while the top floor bedrooms have been made possible by unique raised roof. Entering the estate, you’ll first notice the timeless brick exterior and the arched entrance, which leads to the bright foyer. Adjacent to the foyer find a delightful drawing room and the dining room connected by the wet bar that can double as a catering kitchen. The dining room, fitting a party of 10 or more, boasts a rare 19th century Swedish ceramic stove and offers beautiful views to the manor park from two oversized windows.
Fully finished ground floor is the heart of the home with its vaulted ceilings and old brick wall cutouts. The custom-made professional kitchen is every cooking enthusiast’s and private chef’s dream as it comes fully equipped with latest appliances and features a wine refrigerator, kitchen island, double oven and plenty of space for food preparation. The ground floor also offers a spacious wine-cellar, maintenance rooms and a Finnish-type dry-sauna with relaxation area.
A grand staircase, finished with custom-made wooden art, naturally leads to the grand second floor of the home. The floor offers 10 incredible bedroom suites, all boasting either a full or a half bathroom. Northwest facing bedrooms all give stunning views to the River Pärnu while southeast bedrooms open to the manor’s well-groomed park.
The tranquil 7-hectare park is combined of over a century-old trees, the river bank and an impressive terrace, which was created upon the ruins of the estate’s historical other half. The Staelenhof Manor was established in the 17th century, and was for a longer period of time associated with the Baltic-German noble family Stael von Holstein’s. In the 19th century the manor was famous for being industry-driven as it managed and owned silk and iron factories.
