Novo-Ogaryovo (Russian: Ново-Огарёво), also Novo-Ogarevo, is an estate in the Odintsovo District of Moscow Oblast, located by the Rublyovo-Uspenskoye Highway, and is the suburban residence of the President of Russia, officially recognized as such in 2000.[1]

Novo-Ogaryovo was constructed in the first half of the 1950s on the foundation of a 19th-century villa, at the behest of Georgy Malenkov, for his daughter.[2] Construction work was under way when Malenkov was removed from his position in 1955, and the place was then used as a gosdacha, a "state dacha", or vacation retreat for housing guests, for receptions, and as a workplace for various government committees.

Since 1991, Novo-Ogaryovo has been reserved as a government residence, mostly unused until it was renovated by Russian President Vladimir Putin in 2000. A six-meter-high wall surrounds the Presidential residence.

In October 2012, Putin announced his intention to work at Novo-Ogaryovo to avoid commuting into Moscow, due to the city's extensive traffic congestion.[3]
