The mansion in the classical style was built at the turn of the 18th-19th century for Count Fyodor Tolstoy. In 1818, the house was purchased by the famous cotton merchant Karzinkin. By 1894, the merchant's heirs completely rebuilt the mansion by the project of the architect Barkov. In 1899, after the marriage of Karzinkina with the writer Teleshov, many social balls, literary and musical meetings were held here. Among frequent guests there were Ostrovsky, Balmont, Bryusov, Bunin, Gorky and Kuprin. After 1917, the building was nationalized, and today it is recognized as an architectural monument.
