Essu manor is located approximately two kilometres north of today's Tallinn-Narva highway, so that one can see the present day mansion with its extra buildings from the roadway. They are much larger than before and can therefore be seen through the trees. The earliest surviving papers from the mansion are dated to 1496 and in its long history it has belonged to several owners. At the end of the 19th century, it was owned by one of most famous Baltic-German aristocratic families, the Ungern-Sternbergs, from whom the property was confiscated during 1920’s land reform. The main, single-storey stone building was completed in 1820 and was a one-of-a-kind Classical building, before Virumaa’s local building master Friedrich Modi converted it. At that time, additional Neo-Renaissance-style buildings were added. During Soviet times, it stood as a centre of the collective farm or kolkhoz and in 1974 another large building was added, housing a club and a café (architect R Šein), with walls furnished in grey terrasite plaster. With that, the building had lost its former, original exterior. Naturally, the interior was also redesigned in the contemporary Soviet chic style. Currently the seminar and holiday centre lie at the heart of the house. In addition to the hall, with room for 200 people and the seminar areas, there are also rooms for accommodation, a café, and a sauna complex. Leisurely time can be spent bowling or playing billiards and mini-golf.
