Architecture Characteristic
Architecturally, especially in ground plan, it is very similar to the nearby Oroslavje Donje, which was built before it. It has a central part and two side wings that extend around a courtyard open in the south-east. The backbone of the manor plan is a ground-floor vestibule that extends under the whole width of the house, an antehall and staircase and the great hall with the balcony on the first floor. The gallery in both floors runs down the longitudinal axis of the main building. The south-western wing has a chapel, today empty, that rises through both floors.
The facade is in the late baroque Classicist style. All the facades are the same, except that the main, north-eastern front has a central projection and balcony. The string-course between the ground floor and first floor and the horizontal and vertical pilaster strips form a grate on the facades in which are placed the windows with horizontal drip mouldings above hanging festoons. The pedimented projection, three windows wide, is higher than the main facade. Its windows are larger than the others, end in triangular pediments and are separated from each other by Ionic pilasters with small festoons in their capitals. A balcony supported on four pairs of Tuscan pillars runs the full length of the projection. When it was constructed the former northern entrance was closed and a new one opened in the court front with a neo-Renaissance portal. A small clocktower rises from the south-western wing, above the chapel choir.
The tiled stoves in Stubički Golubovec still attract attention, especially the late-nineteenthcentury ones in the great hall. They are light-grey in colour with round medallions showing the protective spirits - Night and Day. Night is the figure of a woman carrying two sleeping children with an owl flying beside them. Day, the medallion on the other stove, shows a winged guardian spirit scattering flowers and carrying a small winged child holding a torch to announce the new day. Similar stoves stand in the manor house in Lužnica and in the VojkffyOršić-Rauch mansion in Zagreb.
The chapel, dedicated to St Regina and St Maximilian, was built by Countess Regina Drašković and Bishop Maksimilijan de Vrhovac. Countess Regina was known for her work on the renewal and building of chapels, churches and parish halls. In the interior the chapel windows are neo-Gothic and date from the days of the bishop. The chapel has a barrel vault. The baroque-neo-classical altar is no longer preserved. It had two altarpieces, the large (upper) painting showed the Torture of St Regina, and the smaller oval painting showed St Maximilian. The choir screen has a plaque with a text commemorating the dedication of the chapel, which was carried out by Bishop Maksimilijan de Vrhovac in person.
