The complex, consisting of a manor house, granary and remains of a park, constitutes an example of residential manor architecture which has now become rare in the region; the complex is also notable due to the surviving wooden buildings forming part thereof: the manor house and the granary.

History

Trześniów, a village owned by the crown, has been pledged to the local nobility and would retain its status until the times of the partitions of Poland; in 1772, the village was transferred to count Ignacy Cetner. In the early 19th century, the manor was owned by Rafał Kołłątaj, brother of the renowned thinker and activist, Hugo Kołłątaj. It was at that point that the current manor house was built, superseding an earlier building which had stood on the same spot. Rafał Kołłątaj’s daughter, Maria, donated the property to the Institute for the Blind in Lviv towards the end of her life. Upon taking ownership of the manor, the Institute chose to lease it out. The very last lessee of the manor was Feliks Sokulski. After World War II, the manor was converted into a state agricultural holding; after 1996, it was sold into private hands by the Agricultural Property Agency of the State Treasury.

The manor house was renovated after a fire in 1996; it was then also that minor alterations were made, including the additional windows in the shorter sections of the roof. The manor house retains the overall shape which it had at the time it was built. The complex also includes a granary built in the first half of the 19th century as well as a landscape park, also dating back to the first half of the 19th century.

Description

The complex consists of a wooden manor house, the former granary and the remains of a park; it is located in the central part of the village, by the main road leading from Brzozów to Rymanów, on the north side thereof. The house stands on the southern side of a hill which slopes gently towards the local stream known as Pielnica. Towards the east, the manor borders with the remains of the former system of reservoirs created after the stream had been dammed. In the south, near the road, there are remnants of the former park visible in the foreground of the manor house, with a few surviving old trees, including a large plane tree.

The manor house, designed in the classicist style, is located in the centre of the remaining complex.

The single-storey manor house was built on a rectangular floor plan; its cuboid form, covered with a hip roof, features two glazed porches with gable roofs; in addition to these two porches, projecting out of the longer sides of the building, there is also a third one, jutting out of the eastern facade.

The single-storey manor house features a larch log structure set upon a stone footing. The roof, with its pronounced eaves supported by the protruding ends of ceiling beams, is covered with wood shingles. The facades of the building feature decorative wooden fish scale cladding. The front (northern) facade has five axes in total; the southern facade is a five-axis facade with a glazed porch positioned on the centre axis; the eastern and western facades are two-axis facades with rectangular window and door openings and small dormer windows; all windows of the house feature wooden joinery.

The interior, which originally featured two suites of rooms in an enfilade layout, has subsequently been partially modified.

The granary, located at a distance of approximately 70 metres away from the manor house, was built on a rectangular floor plan; it is a cuboid structure covered with a gable roof and features an arcade in its southern section. The granary is a log building positioned on a brick and stone foundation; the arcade is supported by seven wooden pillars, the roof clad with ceramic roof tiles. The north and south facade are both three-axis facades; the interior of the granary features two interconnected rooms.

The complex is supplemented by the remains of a park in the form of a number of old trees now classified as natural monuments as well as the remains of a system of water reservoirs filled with water from a local stream.

The manor constitutes private property.
