History

  • 18th c. - construction
  • 19th/20th century - alteration works
Description

The outbuilding is located to the north-west of the palace. It is a brick and stone building designed on a rectangular floor plan, its size being 33 x 13 metres. The stable is a single-storey building with a two-storey attic. The building’s mansard roof is covered with slate roofing and features a number of dormer windows which break the monotony of the roof’s surface. The building features three types of vaulted ceilings: groin vaults, segmental vaults and barrel vaults supported by structural arches and pillars. A residential building accessible by means of an internal passage adjoins the stable to the west. The two longer façades of the building follow an 8-axial layout.

Initially conceived as a brewery back in the 18th century, the building was subsequently redesigned in the Baroque Revival style at the turn of the 20th century.

The front (southern) façade follows a three-axial layout and features a central niche incorporating the gate leading into the stable. The northern façade features a distinctive stone plinth designed to make up for the uneven terrain. Most of the ground floor level (the central part of the building) was taken up by the stable; in addition, the building was also used as a carriage house and harness-fitting workshop.

The interior of the building follows a basilica layout - something which is by no means evident when one looks at the building from the outside. The interiors are illuminated by the second storey windows, with the light passing through the gallery situated above the horse stalls. The residential section is located above the carriage house and the northern part of the stable, taking up both of the attic levels. The attic above the rest of the stable is also a two-storey structure.

The building may only be viewed from the outside.
