Sagadi estate (German: Saggad) was first mentioned in written records in 1469. During the course of history, it has belonged to several different Baltic German families. A rococo-style manor house was built in 1749-1753, the plans for which have unusually been preserved. The von Fock family who owned the estate hired master builder Johan Nicolaus Vogel to construct the house. The building was rebuilt 1793-1795 and acquired its present elegant, early classicist look at that time. Minor changes were made in 1894 under the guidance of architect Rudolf von Engelhardt. During the larger part of the 20th century, the manor housed a school. It was renovated in 1977-1987.
The manor house ensemble, complete with 20 outbuildings and a park, remains one of the most well-kept manor house complexes in Estonia. In the main house, numerous details such as painted ceilings and carved wooden stairs have been restored, and the main house is historically furnished.
