Architecture Characteristics
The ground plan is U-shaped, but the wings are so short that they are more like corner projections at the back of the building. The main body of the manor is a long rectangle facing south-west, in front of which stretch its grounds. The house and garden were approached through a two-hundred-metre long poplar avenue (Populus nigra "italica") placed on the axis of the main front. Before reaching the house the drive curved into an ellipse, forming the most decorative part of the grounds. Besides the manor house and the garden, the complex includes an orchard and vegetable garden to the west (left) of the drive, an orangery in the garden between the vegetable garden and the house, and a farm with six buildings and a fish pool.
The ground plan of the manor retains the division into a string of rooms along the main front and a gallery running along the back. The ground floor was used for household management, the second floor (mansard floor) partly as servants' quarters, and the first floor had eleven large rooms, with the great hall above the entrance. The great hall takes up three of the five windows in the central projection, and its height includes the second floor and two mansard windows, as well. The ground floor premises have barrel and Czech vaults, and those on the higher floors have ceilings.
String-courses run along the facades separating the storeys. All the windows are framed with the same bands. In the middle of the main facade, which is thirteen windows wide, there is a shallow central projection with five first-floor windows, a main entrance portal and wide bands of stylized rustication along the edges. The much plainer back facade had a ground-floor arcade, later walled in.
At the end of the Second World War the manor was undamaged and had very valuable furnishings. The most valuable of the wall paintings in the first-floor rooms were those in the great hall showing landscapes with Classicist architecture. Especially lovely were the high cylindrical stoves with an urn on top, imported from Vienna, decorated with reliefs showing Greek mythological scenes. The furniture was predominantly Biedermeier and most of it, and also the paintings, books, carpets, valuable tableware and many other small items, were carried off and destroyed after the war. The agricultural estate that took over the manor of Poznanovec considered the wall paintings, tapestries and parqueting an "ideal" setting for raising chickens.
