Located 50 km outside Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, the Estonian Manor is one of the oldest and most unique properties in the country. Since its construction in the 13th century, the manor house has been owned by several noble families and luminaries, including the 19th-century Baltic-German navigator Otto von Kotzebue.
An impressive driveway winds through the estate's historic parkland, past ponds and elegantly landscaped gardens up to the stately manor and coach house. The embodiment of comfort and luxury, the manor house was fully restored to its original splendor in 2012. The architectural provenance was carefully preserved while adding unique details inspired by the life and travels of Otto von Kotzebue. Each of the 20 bedrooms have been decorated in a singular and irreproducible style and offer glorious views of the scenic grounds or enchanting Estonian forest. A fine assortment of reclaimed hardwood floors, century-old beams, high ceilings, luxuriantly textured wood, and exquisite tiles have been used throughout.
The parkland encompasses more than 15 hectares (approximately 37 acres), which include three ponds, formal gardens, a pavilion, and a footpath. In addition to the restored coach house, the property has several ancillary structures, including the original stables, granary, and regent's house.
The Estonian Manor is currently used as an award-winning boutique hotel, boasting a wine cellar and a cigar room, library, and private sauna with an indoor pool—it also has scope as a luxurious private estate.
