Apart from residential role, stone mansion also served as Tekke (belongs to Halveti Order). In the history, the stone mansion (Tekke) played an important role, because of its closeness to Junik, where important meetings with patriots Bajram Curri, Hasan Prishtina etc., were held. The stone mansion is built on three floors, from the stone material and features of traditional architecture. Corners of the stone mansion, window frames and ancak of shelter are made of hewn stone and the rest of the walls are made of river stones of different sizes. On the ground floor, there is a space called cowshed (serves for cattle), entrance door made from oak that has a latch (mast) from inside and instead of windows, there are few holes for ventilation. On the second floor of the stone mansion is reached through exterior stone stairs covered by a roof, such a conceptual solution to the stairs with thick stone walls from the side cannot be found at any other premise. On this floor, there are small rooms called cellars and serve as bedrooms. These rooms have small windows, the floor is paved with dry mortar (serves for heating), and the construction of interstitial place is of wood. attics are made with wood decorations. From the second floor to the third, one may enter through internal stairs, which lead to the men chamber or Tekke.
