Borreby Gods is a fortified manor house at Skælskør, mentioned for the first time in 1345. The existing buildings were built in 1556 by Chancellor Johan Friis, and they replaced the previous buildings that were destroyed during The Count’s Feud (Danish: Grevens Fejde), also called the Count’s War, which was a civil war that raged in Denmark in 1534–36 and brought about the Protestant Reformation.
In 2016, Elgaard Architecture carried out a comprehensive conservation management plan for all listed buildings on the estate. Following Danish Agency for Culture and Palaces’ revision of all listed buildings in Denmark, the conservation values of the buildings have been mapped and the conservation management plan has been carried out to get an overview of the place’s maintenance needs.
All owners of a listed building can have a conservation management plan carried out and paid for by the Danish Agency for Culture and Palaces. The plans are carried out by private consultants specialising in the built heritage.
