The original owner of this manor house was Mr.T.B. Panabokke. This stately home was built in the 19th century and is nearing 200 years and is nestled in the central highlands. The ownership has passed down to the 4th generation and is now owned by Mrs. Padmini Panabokke Molagoda. It is on a 100 acre plantation of tea, coconut and spice.
