Luke mõis-NÕVA, Luke küla, Nõo vald, Tartu maakond
The earliest mentions of Luke Manor date back to 1557. The final wooden main building was from the turn of the 19th and 20th century with characteristics of Neo-Baroque and Heimat Style. The manor building was destroyed during World War II in 1941.
The pride of Luke Manor is the picturesque Neo-Baroque park with terraces on different levels and trees that were once trimmed and now look quite peculiar. Concrete lion statues line one of the staircases between the terraces.
The restored stylish historicist gardener's house and ponds are also worth seeing. In the summer, there is a cafe as well. Come and take your family with you!
