The estate was established in 1601 and it has belonged to the von Wolffeldts, von Kruedeners and also the von Stryks. The two-storey Late-Classicist main building was completed in 1830. It now houses a vocational school. For the latter purpose the building was reconstructed into a three-storey one and, it also got a number of annexes.

A couple of kilometres from the centre of the estate, there is the family cemetery of von Stryks (now ravaged).

By the historical distribution the manor was in Saarde Parish in Pärnumaa County. By the present administrative distribution it belongs to the Saarde Municipality in Pärnumaa County.
