Novo-Ogaryovo (Russian: Ново-Огарёво), also Novo-Ogarevo, is an estate in the Odintsovo District of Moscow Oblast to the west of the city, by the Rublyovo-Uspenskoye Highway and is the location of a suburban official residence of the President of Russia, officially recognized as such in 2000.
The residence was constructed on the basis of a 19th century manor in the first half of the 1950s at the behest of Georgy Malenkov for his daughter. Construction work was under way when Malenkov was removed from his position (1955), and this place was used as a state estate for housing high-placed guests, for receptions and as a place of work of various governmental committees.
Novo-Ogaryovo has been often referred to as one of "gosdachas", since Soviet leaders viewed it as their vacation retreat. Since 1991 it was reserved as a governmental residence, mostly unused until it was renovated by Vladimir Putin in 2000. A six-meter-high wall surrounds the presidential residence. During Putin's term in office, luxury dachas started to appear in the vicinity.
