The castle was nationalized after the gyermeküdülőnek used. The new feature was transformations, but we can say that in addition to dispatch Mobilia serious, irreversible damage to the building did not suffer. In the 90 years the castle was evacuated and the years of waiting for a new master. The elapsed time is not used for the building technical condition gradually worsened, the park is overgrown.
Ms Derry Márta in 1997, bought the castle and showed complete renovation of that historic preservation of our values are not just talking, but doing it well. By the forgotten, restored mansion in bad condition, he visited thereto, thinking of our past, an appreciation of our values, our future, our children.

The ground floor of the former increased the glazed veranda conservatory and converted into a restaurant here.
The largest intervention in the build-wing swimming pool this meant, but tried not to disturb the harmony of the castle. The back yard maintained and developed while the current premises of the sauna and nice, varied tetőtömegeit well. The swimming pool with glass, ja polygonal shape not only the park is trying to close a connection, but also refers to the development of the main entrance facade of glazed conservatory as well.
Organically linked to the castle within the castle garden L-shaped farm building, which has been managed by the council, after the nationalization. It worked inside the youth club, village library, hair salon, organized by the place where the village celebrations and gatherings. It was a popular place Röjtökmuzsaj population. The government though would have liked, but he could not sacrifice the order imports. Thus was born the idea that the new owners of the castle undertake the renovation of the farm building, which historically has always belonged to the castle anyway, so that the castle and its environment in all its glory as a hotel to work on. How the community is not exposed to harm, instead they built a place designated by the government of a new, more suitable for today’s needs of the village house, which has not only events venue, but also the permanent home of the local government.
The exchange took place, so that became the village built a new house is proof that good cause to private owners and municipalities can cooperate benefit everyone.

The former park and creation of the atmosphere of the newly built sports fields did not break.
„Export plan for the renovation of the park ahead of preparatory work was more part of the park geodetic survey and inventory of existing crops. Due to the szállodafunkcióból the garden must meet diverse needs that had to be taken into account in the design. The value of existing plants and the former kialakításból remaining protected items matching the features I was looking for the opportunity to provide new housing needs in such a way that the final result of building a harmonious ensemble park in relation born. „- Mary says Brány.
The former vegetation, without exception, the only woody plants were virtually untraceable. the most valuable elements of the park in front of the Dutch garden and the U-shaped inner garden bukszusparterei intact, and vérbükkök huge plane trees, black walnut and the castle.
They examined the trees, the megmaradókat cared for the sick, megmenthetetlen plants, seedlings and undergrowth enveloping cut. After extracting the rock garden beautiful, interesting shape opened to the garden builders, whose introduction into plants is based on the country’s wealth to plant gardens. The lack of new plants are replaced.
So he could develop in Derry Marta handiwork of the „miracle world“, which is now our guests can find the romanticism of the past and the present is comfort.
