Stora Djupsås, previously known as Ljipsaas or Gipsaas, was first mentioned in writing in 1497 and was owned by the squire Erik Bengtsson. Over the centuries the property has been owned by several different families, including Nilsson, Henriksson, Jönsson (later Lilliebielke) and Silfverhjelm.
In 1772, Stora Djupsås was bought by Captain Alexander Björnberg, who later made it a fideicommiss, which meant that the property would remain in the family by inheritance through the male line. During Alexander’s time, the area of the estate was increased to a maximum of 1700 acres, which included most of the southwestern part of the parish as well as Fåglum and Barne-Åsaka.
Under the ownership of the Björnberg family, the property has seen significant changes and development. During the 19th century, the buildings on the property were modernized and updated and part of the forest was cleared to make way for agriculture and pastures.
In the 20th century, however, the number of jobs on the estate declined as the agricultural sector changed and became increasingly mechanized. Nevertheless, Stora Djupsås continued to be a significant employer and a symbol of local history and tradition. The property has also been subject to conservation efforts and is still maintained today to ensure its historical and cultural value.
Stora Djupsås is home to several beautiful buildings, including the manor house and wing buildings, which bear witness to a rich history. In addition, the surrounding forest, water and ancient deciduous trees are a feast for the eyes. The farm has a unique combination of cultural and historical values and natural beauty, making it a place to enjoy both relaxation and adventure.
We are looking forward to implementing our future plans for Stora Djupsås and creating a sustainable and vibrant place that will be an important part of Essunga for many years to come.
