Maidla manor

Maidla (German: Maidel) manor has a history that goes back to at least 1452. During the Middle Ages, there was a fortified manor or a small castle on the site, parts of which has been incorporated into the eastern tower of the current, later building. The current building dates from the second half of the 18th century, while it received its current look during a reconstruction in the early part of the 19th century. The interior is characterised by its 19th-century decoration such as a well-preserved neo-renaissance coffered ceiling.[1]

The estate has belonged to several local [2]

Apart from the main manor house, the former estate incorporates several still surviving outbuildings, such as stables and servants' quarters. An artificial lake forms a backdrop to the building at the rear.[3]
