At the corner of Khlebny and Maly Rzhevsky Lane architect Roman Ivanovich Klein built in 1906 a mansion for the Siberian goldsmith Ivan Ignatievich Nekrasov. A nice small mansion, very nicely decorated this corner, built in the tradition of English neo-Gothic. The house looks like a small castle well fortified. Two large flat facades converge at the corner to a semicircular, multi-faceted bay window, consisting of the windows of small living rooms that come out here. This "bay window" is the forerunner of the constructivist corner balconies. The upper ledge of the bay window is decorated with an ornament in the Gothic style. The ascent of it is emphasized by narrow, convoluted columns between the windows.

Two side facade decorated by the high-pointed gables, which are arranged in the attic. Mansard windows - the narrow, twin, as the ancient battlements. The front door of the alley entrance to some sort of an old castle. The main staircase preserved Gothic vaults.

Very compactly the architect decided the private courtyard territory, where the second entrance to the house opens, through an internal staircase leading from the basement floor, where there was a kitchen and utility rooms, to the uppermost private rooms in a multi-level attic. On the courtyard facade preserved forged balcony.

Until now, the house has been preserved elevator, serving food from the kitchen in the basement in the main dining room on the first floor.

Ivan Ignatievich Nekrasov was the son of a Siberian merchant who owned rich gold mines in Kansk and a distillery. Ivan Ignatievich expanded his father's business and already owned 15 mines in the Tomsk, South Yenisei, Achinsk-Minusinsk districts. He was among the first to start working on ore at the Andreevsky goldfield on the Sarala Yus river.At the beginning of the 20th century, he opened a representative office of his plants in Moscow. For the raids in the capital, he built this mansion. Even at the end of the XIX century, he bought the Raika manor in the Schelkovo district. There architect Kekushev built several wooden cottages in the Art Nouveau style. Three years in a row, from 1907 to 1909, the Pasternak family lived in the dacha. The artist Vasily Surikov, a friend of his master in Krasnoyarsk, also rented a dacha in Raiky.

The son of Ivan Ignatievich Nikolai Ivanovich was already a capital resident. He married in 1915 on the granddaughter of Vikula Evseevich Morozov Olga Ivanovna.

The house lost its owners during the revolution. For many years here was the residence of the Ambassador of Spain. Now it is occupied by the Embassy of Chile.
