The manor complex in Kurowice was recognised as a complex with architectural and spatial value of importance both for the region and for the history of architecture. All buildings of the manor complex, along with a farm, form a complex with interesting spatial and landscape values.

History

Kurowice belonged to the Kurowski family with the Prus coat of arms. In the late 18th century the Kurowice farm belonged to Franciszek Taszycki and in 1823 the estate was taken over by Emilia Trębicka nee Taszycka. In 1867 the property was bought by Stanisław Trębicki. In 1891 the property was taken over by a widow of Stanisław Trębicki, contributing it as a dowry to the Starzyński family. From 1907 onwards the property is subject to gradual partitioning. In 1930 the complex was taken over by Kazimierz Trębicki, Starzyńska’s relative. In 1946 the property was taken over by the State Treasury, forming a Production Cooperative, then a Regional Production Cooperative and in 1965 the State Agricultural Holding Kurowice.

Description

The manor and park complex with a farm is located between Kurowice village and the Siedlce-Ceranów road. It is situated south of the road leading to Kurowice village, on a gentle slope. Surrounded on three sides by fields and meadows, which are restricted by the Cetynia river in the north-west, thus forming the park’s border. The complex is functionally partitioned into two component parts: a park with a manor house and a manor farm. The park occupies the north-eastern part, while the manor farm - the south-western part. The manor house combines these two component sites. The landscape park is partitioned into halves by a longitudinal alley. The alley runs parallel to the manor house; today, it constitutes a relic of the former main passage. In front of the manor house facing the south-east, there is an oval porte-cochère giving way to a current access road to the manor house and to the manor farm. An unpaved road in the east sets the borders of the park, while two gateway posts delimit the access road. Entrance to the manor farm leads from the unpaved road. The shape of the manor house approximates that of a rectangle. The northern border is delimited by a road to the village, the eastern by a young wood, the southern by a manor house demarcation line and the western by the park border. An old outbuilding perpendicularly aligned to the manor house is located behind the manor farm. This part includes two cow sheds, a granary, a barn and a pigsty. Two cow sheds are located in the south-eastern corner, parallel to each other. In front of them there is a transformer station and a figure of the Holy Mother. A granary is located in the western part, a cow shed and a barn in the north-western part, the latter two along the same line at the border. An old guard house, closing the former access road to the manor house, is located at the Ceranów-Sokołów Podlaski road. Greenery is concentrated in the park, around the outbuilding and at the granary. It forms a regular, naturalistic landscape composition. Concentrations of deciduous trees are found at the granary. Two ponds and the Cetynia river are found in the park. The manor farm is surrounded by a contemporary metal net. Only the posts that delimit the access road have survived of the old gates to the manor house and manor farm.

The feature can be viewed only from the outside.
