Laitse is a village in Kernu Parish, Harju County in northern Estonia.

Laitse manor[edit]

Laitse manor (German: Laitz) was established as an independent manorial estate in 1630. During its history, it has belonged to several Baltic German families belonging to the nobility, including the Uexküll family. During the Soviet occupation of Estonia it was divided into apartments. The presently visible building was erected in 1890-1892 in local limestone and is among the best preserved Gothic Revival manor houses in Estonia.[1]
