This building is the main manor house preserved in its original form from the first half of the nineteenth century.

Although the house changed hands many times, it was not subjected to alterations. According to the address book the estate belonged to Rimsky-Korsakov in the middle of the XIX century.

In 1874 the manor was registered for Sofia Petrovna Naryshkin, the wife of a state councilor, chamberlain brilliant Constantine Pavlovich Naryshkin. Their marriage caused a stir in the high society of Moscow. The fact that Narishkin was connected with the mother of his future wife, the famous Moscow beauty M. Ushakova for a long time and even had a son with her, but in the late 1840s he married her daughter, Sophia. This lady remained in the memories of his contemporaries as a beautiful, but cruel woman. Known hairdresser said of her:"When I brush her, she sticks the hairpins into the hands of her maids, like they're pins! You know, this is a very evil lady. "

Plotitsyns owned the manor in 1896. One can only wonder whether they are relevant to the community representatives of Skopcheskaya society with the same name, heroes Morshansky sensational case in 1868. Apparently, the main entrance on the left side of the mansion, which broke the symmetry of several houses was built during their times.

Tatyana A. Mamontov ( eq. Khludov ), widow of hereditary honorary citizen A.N. Mamontov, a cousin of S.I. Mamontov owned the house in 1901.

Now it is difficult to determine at what point the manor goes to wealthy homeowners Miliyanchuk Baskakov. In the early 1900s, Vasily and Ivan Baskakov owned lots of houses in Moscow. They used to build apartment buildings in the Art Nouveau style on their plots, however they did not rebuilt the estate on Nikitskaya. In the 1910s one could rent an apartment here.

In 1917 P. Kropotkin, the founder of the anarchism theory with his wife Sophia rented one of the apartments here. Apparently, the revolution found them in this house. October battles were very close to this place.

V.S. Baskakov lost all his possessions after the revolution, his family lived in one of their homes in the 12 - meter room. He died in 1938 in Moscow and was buried in the German cemetery.
