The Zichy counts built their second castle in Sárszentmihály around 1900. In 1930, the castle was purchased by the Baron Szterényi family of Brasov, and was owned by József Szterényi until 1941. In 1918, the Szterényi family was one of the last families to receive the baronial title of József. József Szterényi was Minister of Commerce from 1905-10 and was also appointed Prime Minister from 20-28 April. After the death of the Baron in 1941, Sándor Szterényi became the owner of the castle.
In 2000, a chapel was consecrated in the park in honour of Blessed Vilmos Apor by Dr Nándor Takács, Bishop of Székesfehérvár. Here you can find the bishop's ornate reliquary, with a piece of cloth soaked in the martyred bishop's blood.
From 1951 the building was under the management of the Sárszentmihály State Farm. From 1990 to 1995 it was owned by the ÁVÜ, after which it became private property. It was completely renovated by its new owner. It is currently in its original use. The castle is surrounded by a well-kept English park.
