Categories / Tsarskoe Selo and town of Pushkin. The digital chronological reference book/Monuments of history and culture

Two first areas, laid out by A.F. Vidov in 1855 for six country plots on the Separated Park territory, were granted by Emperor Alexander II for building Princess Z.I. Yusupova’s villa. The villa was built for the owner’s money in 1856-1859 to the design of the architect I. Monighetti , that was partly changed during the works. The mansion, gardener’s house and the pond are survived until the present time in. Wrought iron wings of the gate on the villa’s territory from Pavlovsk Road were decorated with the monogram “Z Yu”. Later the most considerable works were done during the 1890s – 1910s, when the villa belonged to Countess Sumarokova-Elston Princess Z.N. Yusupova and was used the most actively. The architectural design of the mansion was made on motifs of Italian villas. Facades of the mansion were decorated in the Baroque style forms which remembered the decoration of the Hermitage pavilion in the Catherine Park. Placing a kitchen and rooms for servants in a wing, joining to the main house, was made like in the Babolovo Palace.
