Nicu Chiroiu manor in Condeeşti near the Urziceni is one of the three Nicu Chiroiu manors conceived by architect Paul Smărăndescu for various members of Chiroiu family. Chiroiu family appears at the beginning of the 20th century as one of the great landlord families in Ialomiţa county, having extensive domains in Urziceni area. As the Agrarian Reform of the 1920s is being carried out, the Chiroiu family puts in practice a common tactic to keep their lands in the family - splitting large domains in smaller ones and giving them off to relatives. Due to this comes the necessity of building a series of smaller country houses for each of the newly formed estates.
 
The manor of Condeeşti is closely related on multiple levels to the manor of the closely Borăneşti, the same family, the same architect, the same building period and the same style - the fashionable Neo-romanian style. The manor’s main characteristic features include the dominant roof with steep slopes, together with decorative elements such as loggias and open porches, with masonry columns richly ended or wooden carved colonnettes.
 
The manor of Condeeşti has been retrieved by the rightful heirs, who are planning to undertake its general restoration, while keeping it as a private residence.
