Property descriptionLocated in Căteasca village, in the high plain of Pitesti, on the right bank of Argeș river, this manor has a long history. In this area, at the end of the nineteenth century, there were large estates, owned by the great boyar families of those times. One of the most famous such estates was that of the vornic Iordache Golescu who in 1831 owned the Căteasca or Popești estate and the Ratesti or Tufeanca estate. When the agrarian reform of 1921 started, things have changed. In a sale deed from 1904 we find out that Elena Maria Golescu, the vornic's successor, sells the entire estate called Tompa from Căteasca to the well-known landowner Constantin Zamfirescu. He owned over 800 hectares of agricultural land, with manors, orchards, vineyards, forests and meadows in the Argeș region. We can assume that in this manor his son, Constantin Zamfirescu-Căteasca, was born in 1895. A prominent leader of the PNL, he was elected, several times, deputy of Argeș, he also held the position of president of the Argeș county organization, he was a close collaborator of I Gh. Duca and Dinu Brătianu. In May 1944, he was part of the political leadership of the opposition, together with Bebe Brătianu and other political leaders, and drafted the action program for Romania's exit from the war and the participation along the Allies. After August 23, he became minister of war production in the governments chaired by Generals Constantin Sanatescu and Nicolae Radescu.
The Neo-Romanian style manor, is imposing and spectacular. Completely renovated on the outside, the mansion is in good condition from a structural point of view, but requires a complete renovation on the interior. With such a size, the property is a valuable one, providing the future owner with a total area of more than 500 square meters arranged on two levels, the attic plus a tower that can become the main attraction of the manor. The 4,500 sqm of land offers multiple possibilities for the future use. With a rich history and spectacular architecture, the manor can be transformed into a boutique hotel, event center, or can become a truly aristocratic holiday residence.
