Kooli tee 2, Allikukivi küla, Saarde vald, Pärnu maakond
Allikukivi Manor was built in the 1860s as a residential building for the director of the cloth fabric situated on the land of Voltveti Manor. It is a historicist brick-building with Neo-Gothic traits. Its style and the surrounding landscape remind the manor houses of that era – a representational function, a curved driveway in front of the building, and a surrounding park.
The mansion has also housed a community centre, a school, and a library. Currently, it is privately owned and used as a winery to produce wine from Estonian berries and fruits.
Apart from the textile fabric, the area is known for producing bricks and a local clay industry. It has inspired the novelist Peet Vallak and the performance by Priit Pedajas, Epp Pillarpardi Punjaba potitehas.
