The mansion was initially built in 1716 by architect František Maxmilián Kaňka for Václav Antonín Chotek, count of Chotkov and Vojnín. The original mansion was extended in 1764 by architect Giovanni Battista Alliprandi on orders of count Rudolf Chotek of Chotkov and Vojnín who also commissioned the interior decoration. Further extensions and the annexes of the mansion were constructed in 1804.
