The classic mansion was built in the late 18th century on the site of former shops and a state-owned drinking house. In the 1820s, a two-story stone house with a basement belonged to the Moscow shopkeeper Tsyganov and was converted into retail premises and shops. In the 1830s, the mansion was expanded and enlarged in area, and the corner was rounded. In 1876, the ownership passed to the Moscow merchant Borisov. By that time, the third floor was overbuilt and a gate was arranged in the eastern part of the house.
