It was originally a ground-floor, four-winged Renaissance building with a central courtyard. The manor house was surrounded by a moat and on the north side there was a bastion, which was later rebuilt into a chapel. The building was then rebuilt and acquired a three-winged shape with a U-type floor plan.

At present, the building houses the Municipal Office, post office and inn.

History and personalities

The history of the manor house in Horný Trhoviště dates back to the 16th century, when the village probably belonged to the descendants of the Škarbalov family from Sokolovice. The manor house was built in the Renaissance style according to the model of similar Renaissance buildings. It was fortified due to the imminent Turkish danger. Initially, it was a ground-floor, four-winged building with a central courtyard and a defensive tower on the north side. The mansion was surrounded by a moat.

In 1758, the manor house was extensively rebuilt, when it essentially lost its Renaissance appearance. Its owner, Baron Anton Jesenský, rebuilt the bastion into a chapel and rebuilt the whole building into a three-winged U-shaped floor plan.

Anton Jesenský was replaced by several owners, such as Alexander Hellenbach, Michal Szendrey, Gašpar Cingel, Žigmund Ernődy and Viktor Zerdahelyi. The manor was later transformed into a manor, managed by Ladislav Benkeő, followed by Alexander Blum and Jozef Borecký.

In 1931, the Bratislava General Bank took over the Borecký estate and in 1937 it sold it to the landowner Teltscher, whose property was nationalized after 1945.
