About object

The estate is a noteworthy example of residential stone architecture of the early 20th century. The main house was built in the early 20th century. It stands on the outskirts of the village of Kostroni. Behind it is an abandoned park with a pond and several utility structures, of which the barnyard is in the best condition. The house has two storeys and an irregular shape: a rectangle with a curved northeastern corner. The house decor is simple and minimalistic. The corners of the building are decorated with relief brickwork. The southern facade of the westernmost section is divided into three parts with two pilasters. The semi-circular section (a ballroom) has the most varied decor on the facade: the windows on the ground floor are recessed into shallow niches with semi-circular tops and framed in semi-circular arches supported by pilasters. There is a small circular niche above every pilaster. The doors next to the eastern section are decorated in a similar fashion. The porch is also supported with pilasters. A cornice runs around the entire structure, interrupted in two places on the northern and eastern facades.

Below the building, there is a high basement with semi-circular windows. The house is built of bricks, with a stone foundation. At this time the building has no roof. In March 1986, when the landmark passport was drawn up, the entire building was covered by a hipped roof. Excluding the basements, the building has a total area of 1,000 sq m. The borders of the estate are not clearly defined. During the Soviet times, the building was used by a bakery. Towards the end of the war, the southern annex was blown up. Later, the house was used as a store, a cafeteria and then a dormitory.
