Lyakhovo Manor: location, description, historical facts, photos

The nineteenth century can be figuratively called the century of noble estate life. For half a year, the well-born nobles lived not in stuffy stone Moscow, but in their patrimonial estates. Over time, Moscow expanded and built up, absorbing the nearest estates within the city limits. Now Izmailovo, and Ostankino, and even at that time distant Kuskovo are completely built-up and inhabited Moscow areas. But in the Moscow region and today there is a sufficient number of old estates that have not yet entered the capital's borders. Unfortunately, many of them, which are of undoubted interest for history and posterity, are on the verge of destruction by people or time. Below is a photo of the Lyakhovo estate, included in this list.

Where is it?

Domodedovo district is one of the southern administrative units near Moscow around Domodedovo Airport. On its territory, according to published data, there areseveral well-preserved cultural and historical sites: the estates of the Morozovs and Konstantinovo, the Ex altation of the Cross Jerusalem Convent and six ancient temples, the area of ​​archaeological excavations - the Shcherbinsky settlement. Unfortunately, the list of these historical places does not include the Lyakhovsky estate, located in the same area. Lyakhovo near Moscow is located near the Vosta River.

To get to the estate of Lyakhovo, Domodedovo district, it is best (if you don’t have your own car) to go by rail from Paveletsky railway station, and then from Barybino station by bus number 43.

Stages of shaping the appearance of the estate

Located near Kolomna, the village of Lyakhovo is mentioned in the Scribe Book for the 1570s. For a long time it has been described as a sparsely populated and unowned place. And after the raids of the Crimean Tatars, it was completely burnt. The transformation of the territory began from the moment when it was first declared a patrimonial possession.

Estate Development

In this part of the article, attention will be paid to the development of not the Lyakhovo estate itself, but the land belonging to it, on which the houses of the serfs of the estate were located.

In the 16th c. According to documentary sources, there are only four peasant households on the site of the estate, which were destroyed and burned during the raid of the Crimean Tatars. There is no information about the fate of the villagers.

Before the 18th c. there was a wasteland where the village had been. After the beginning of the arrangement on these lands of the landowner's estate, peasant houses began to be built nearby. By the end of the first decade, the yards of four peasant families were rebuilt here, forcibly relocated from another patrimonial estate of the owners of the estate, located in the Mikhailovsky district. Nine years later, there were already ten mowings and a little more than 300 acres of arable land.

By the end of the century, an extensive orchard grew here, three ponds were laid out in which fish were bred, a barnyard for cattle was set up, and a water mill worked. And at the beginning of the 19th century. a regular park with fountains and cascades was laid out.

By the middle of the 19th century. number of peasanthouseholds increased to 25. 99 peasants lived in them, mostly corvee workers. By the end of the century, the barnyard had replenished with 12 horses, sheep and pigs.

Architectural features of the estate

The main building of the estate is made of red brick. Usually its walls were plastered. The decor of the facades is laid out in the form of relief elements in a contrasting white color: medallions, vignettes. Also, the motif of a three-part window was used in the decorative design, and "blind windows" were used on the end facades.

Manor Lyakhovo

One-story building has a mezzanine with a balcony. The center of the main and courtyard facades is highlighted by an antique portico using the Tuscan order. The portico of the main facade has not survived to this day.

The two-storey outbuilding next to it has something in common with the architectural design of the manor house. The second floor also has a Tuscan portico - on double columns. The columns are placed on quadrangular pylons. These supports are decorated with rustication.

A movie is being made

In 1984, the shooting of Mark Zakharov's film "Formula of Love" by Mark Zakharov, well-known and beloved by many Russian citizens, took place in the Lyakhovo estate. It was this estate that "played" in the film the role of the landowner's estate of Alexei, a romantic and a dreamer, and his aunt, who was brilliantly played by Tatiana Peltzer.

Homestead in the movie

In the park near the manor's house, a hoax ceremony took place, arranged by Count Cagliostro, according to the materialization of the sculpture that adorned the meadow: either PraskovyaTulupova, or Juliet or Beatrice, or even someone completely unknown.

Praskovya Tulupova

It was in the park of the estate that the romance of the young master and Maria Ivanovna, the count's companion, rapidly developed. And it was here that a memorable photo was taken by a local amateur photographer, who so long begged for this favor of Cagliostro. One of the corners of Lyakhovo is captured in a photograph sent to Count Cagliostro in his place of imprisonment in Italy and brightening up his last days.

Now the interiors of the landowner's house are not at all like those in which Cagliostro swallowed forks for dessert, sitting at the dining table next to the local doctor (the role of the doctor was played by Leonid Armor.) You will not hear or see the rushing about with a heart-rending cry or Fimka, played by Alexandra Zakharova, walking with a plate of fritters.

Estate interiors

The carriage house has been preserved in a rather deplorable state, where a local blacksmith, a connoisseur of Latin, "repaired" the count's carriage…

Filmed in the Lyahovo estate in the 1990s. and another film - "Sad Paradise" by Arkady Krasilshchikov. The film did not become popular, but kept the estate in the history of cinema once again.
