The Dudești mansion is a medium-sized building, built in the vernacular mountain style, with a square plan and two levels. It was built in the 18th century, probably around 1750, by the Dudesti boyar family.

The Dudești family was a family of notable boyars from Moldova, which settled in Bucharest in the 17th century. They owned the Dudești estate, located in the southern part of the city, for several generations.

The mansion was built in the vernacular mountain style, which was characterized by simplicity and functionality. The main facade faces south and has a monumental portal with Corinthian columns. This portal is a later addition, probably from the Phanariot period or early 19th century.

The sides of the mansion are simple, with rectangular windows. The back side has a skos or sacnasium, which is a typical element of Ottoman residential architecture of the post-Brancovena era.

The interior of the mansion is divided into two levels. On the ground floor is a large hall, which was used for receptions and social events. On the first floor are the living rooms of the noble family.

The mansion is located in the middle of a huge courtyard, bounded by a 17th or 18th century enclosure wall. In the yard there are other outbuildings such as a kitchen, a stable and a dining hall.

In the cellar of the manor there is a tunnel that connected the manor to the Văcărești Monastery (disappeared today). This tunnel is a mysterious element that adds an extra charm to the mansion.
