Kernu manor, about 40 kilometers from Tallinn, is getting a major overhaul and will open as a business center with a small private airport.

Kernu municipality council member Hannes Orgse said on Kernu's homepage that the current manor building will be revamped in order to be better suited for seminars, and office and accommodation rooms. A nearby plot is envisioned to be a small airport with all necessary buildings including hangars and maintenance workshops.

The 60.8 hectare complex was purchased by Evore from AS Hoolekandeteenus in 2012, which operated a nursing home there, for 350,000 euros. Evore is owned by businessman Viktor Siilats, Äripäev reported.

The local government is backing the project, saying the new manor complex will create jobs and help make the region more attractive.
