Built in 1806 by the French
for Johannes Søbøtker. He practiced for a while in Denmark as well as
other countries, including America. His elegant, simplified Neoclassical
style was also used at Sophienholm in
1805 and Hellerupgård in 1802.
Three-bay centre with attic and pediment. This projects beyond the
end-bays on the garden side while it recedes on the entrance side. The
attic is stressed by a horizontal band below the windows. Very simplified
pediments above the ground floor windows on the end-bays. On the garden
side these windows also have semi-cicular recesses with reliefs and
balustrades. Covered veranda.
The house is now a local history museum and exhibition centre.
In the lovely park there are a number of
three of which can be seen here.
