Subject / Architecture/Country estates

Koporye (Grevova), a country estate in the Lomonosov district. In the 18th century Koporye lands belonged to the Count Razumovskys. In 1809 Count Rasumovsky sold the large estate (15000 desyatinas) with 14 villages to the senator V.N. Zinovyev. His descendants owned Koporye till 1917. The estate, got the name of Grevova, was being built at the same time with the other Zinovyev's country house - Bogoslovka which was located on the right bank of the River Neva (now it is the forest park "Nevsky"). It is likely the constructions were built according to the projects by the architect V.I. Beretti who built the manor-house in Bogoslovka. The appearance of the lost estate manor-house in Grevova is unknown. Two long oblique alleys led from the road to the estate on the hillside have been intacted. The landscape park with ponds and lawns is limited with service buildings, a gardener's stone house have been intacted. In 1862 under D.V. Zinovyev the park's square was doubled, stone service buildings were built near the road. In the 1900s the estate was often visited by the last owner sister L.D. Zinovyeva-Annibal, a writer, the wife of the philosopher and poet Vyacheslav I. Ivanov.
