Rajevsky's Manor House is a building of historical significance in Pushkin, Saint Petersburg. It was built in the period of 1855-1886. Nowadays it is an object of cultural heritage.[1][2] The building is located on 34, 36 Pushkinskaya Street.

History[edit]

The estate appeared on the site of two historical sites. At the corner section (No. 311) in the 1820s housed single-storey houses of the palace stoker Heat. In the middle of the XIX century, ownership passed to AI Ilyin, the valet of the Grand Duke Konstantin Nikolaevich. The adjacent plot (No. 310), along Pushkinskaya street, was owned by the out-of-town councilor IA Bakinovsky, for whom in 1855, according to the project of IA Monighetti, a stone two-storey house was built (current house 36). By 1882 (according to other sources, in the 1870s), both sections were bought by Major-General MN Raevsky. The second house for Raevsky (present-day house 34) was built in 1886 in the former section of Ilyin, designed by the architect A. F. Vidov. Somewhat earlier, Vidov expanded the first house, extending it to the east by an addition to the three axes.[3][4][5]

After the October Revolution, both buildings were nationalized. In the beginning, both buildings were occupied by children's homes of the 1 st exemplary colony, and since 1928 they have been transferred to housing. After the Great Patriotic War, the corner house housed the district division of the KGB, in the right house - the district committee of the CPSU. Now both buildings are occupied by the district department of internal affairs.[3][4][5]

Architecture[edit]

The facade of house 36, according to the project of Monighetti, is decorated with a "boarded" rust in the ground floor and paired sandric (straight and triangular) on the edges of the house on the second floor. The house is decorated with a balcony with curved brackets and a wrought-iron lattice in three windows. After completion, although the new part was removed under the old cornice and the same elements of decoration were used, the facade became asymmetrical, the sandricks are densely located on the right edge of the facade. Composition of house 34 is similar to house 36, although it is decorated richer: the lower floor is decorated with a large rust, the window openings of the upper floor are decorated with sandricks. The entrance to the house is made on the extreme axis of the house closest to the neighbor, the decoration of the entrance is laconic, the emblem of the owner is placed above the doors.[3][4]
