The homestead No. 17 is located in the central part of the village, on the east side of the village green, with a short driveway connecting it with the main village road. The cottage is placed in the end of the yard, with the ridge running parallelly with the road. At the front, there is a gatehouse with a livestock building and a barn at its sides.



The homestead No. 17 in Sulimice retained its original, 19th-century, four-sided layout and is composed of three historical buildings: a cottage, a livestock building and a gatehouse, which are of half-timbered construction with clay and brick infill.

The most precious object is a half-timbered cottage, located in the depth of the yard, retaining its original architectural form, clipped gable roof, elevation composition, wall construction and elements of historical door and window woodwork. The interior has its two-family arrangement from the 1930s with interconnecting rooms and two chimneys with smokeries.

The livestock building and the gatehouse also have historical form and mixed, half-timbered and brick, wall construction and are used according to their original destination. The original, cobblestone surface has remained in the yard (now overgrown with grass), with a well in the middle.
