An example of a gardener’s house located in the park surrounding a palace.

History

The house was erected in the 1780s, its construction accompanying the alteration works in the palace itself, conducted following the acquisition of the manor by the von Mutius family from the von Matuschka family. Somewhere around the year 1990, a porch was added to the eastern side of the house.

Description

The gardener’s house is located in the north-eastern corner of the park, forming part of the stone perimeter wall that surrounds the site. Remnants of the former greenhouse adjoin the western façade of the building. Initially designed on a rectangular floor plan, the single-storey building follows a two-bay layout, with a small basement underneath the north-eastern corner. The house is covered with a hip roof with two slopes on each side, clad with ceramic beaver tail roof tiles arranged in a “lace” pattern. The building is made of brick, its walls covered with plaster. Some of the architectural detailing (balusters, window surrounds) are made of sandstones. The flat ceilings are lined with wooden boards. The window openings are rectangular in shape. The northern and southern façades follow a four- and six-axial design respectively; some of the original window openings have been bricked up over the years. In the southern façade, a row of decorative balusters can be seen below each window, with a cornice running directly above.

The building may be viewed from the outside.
