The Blankenfelde manor house was built in the middle of the 18th century. The edifice has simplified baroque forms, and ceiling decorations in baroque have also preserved. The interior has retained its original decorative elements - doors with inlaid work, parket floors, mural paintings of the classicism period and a Biedermeyer fireplace.

In front of the manor house there is a closed yard sur- rounded by outhouses and pavilions. The stone wall has an iron-wrought garden gate in rococo.

The Biksti manor house was built in the mid 19th century in eclecticism, with elements of classicism. It is a two-storeyed, double-gabled building. Symmetrical gabled projections are attached to the end facades. The ensemble of the manor includes several dwelling-houses, a cattle-yard, cattle-shed, barn and a stable. The most original among them is the stone barn the pediment of which has elements of neo-Gothic. There is also the old castle built in 1670 the planning of which shows a certain influence of medieval architecture. Nowadays a first storey has been added and the structure has lost its original appearance.

The ensemble of the Bēne manor was set up in the 2nd half of the 19th century. The manor house by the millpond was erected for Baron Georg von Reck after the project of a Petersburg architect Schlupp during 1876-1878. In 1905, the manor was on fire. Although reconstructed in a simplified manner, the manor house stili is an interesting feature of the ensemble.

The building complex of the Bēne manor has developed since the 2nd half of the 19th century. It consists of a cattle-shed, the servants house, the barn and the fowlery. A special attention deserves the watermill (built in 1895, annexed in 1905).

At the end of the 19th century near the castle a park was laid out with a drive-way, surrounded by a path, a lake and rosebushes near the main entrance.
