Usachev-Naidenov estate

The name “Usachev-Naidenov Manor” says little to people unfamiliar with the history of tea merchants brothers Vasily and Pyotr Usachev. But in the past, Muscovites knew them well and even loved them in their own way — the nearby bridge over the Yauza River was named Usachevsky in their honor.

The estate is located on the high bank of the Yauza River, so the second, unofficial name of the estate is “Vysokie Gory”.

One of the two plots of the estate once belonged to Grand Duke Ivan III, a collector of Russian lands.

The Usachev-Naidenov estate consists of a main house, a park with gazebos, rotundas, a fountain, statues and a Tea House (which, unfortunately, was destroyed by fire). An elegant wrought-iron gate leads to the territory. The main house, designed by the famous architect Domenico Gilardi, stands out for its high ground floor, exquisite stucco molding, porticos and columns.

After the Usachevs, the estate was owned by the Khludovs, who left their mark there. For example, they assembled an art gallery with works by young Perov, Fedotov, a sketch by Bryullov, as well as works by Aivazovsky and Bogolyubov. Gerasim Ivanovich Khludov significantly expanded the park, exotic plants appeared in it that surprised everyone and everyone: lemon trees, tangerines, tall palm trees, beautiful roses and snowy grew in greenhouses -white hydrangeas. Rare tree species at that time were planted in the park itself — thujas, cedars, silver spruce trees and Karelian birches.

The park did not change its appearance even after the Russian Empire turned into the USSR. Statues symbolizing the change of seasons, lions and fabulous griffins — all this remains. If Mosfilm needed to take the audience back in time, it was in this park that the shooting was carried out. It can be seen in the favorite Pokrovsky Gate, Intergirl and Guest from the Future. All of them starred in “High Mountains”.

Alexandra Naidyonova (Khludova) was the last owner of the estate before nationalization. She did not live in it, but kept it from desolation and maintained the refined order established by her father.

The Usachev-Naidenov estate has been and will remain a place with a long history, which has seen a period of fragmentation of Russian lands, grand dukes, tsars, emperors and Bolsheviks. Now the building houses a sports traumatology center, but its historical interiors have been restored, and the spirit of the times is still in these walls.
