Zatulenye, a country estate (Zatulenye Village, the Luga District). A wooden manor-house with pillars at the façade and a mezzanine was built in the 1810s by Rear Admiral M.M. Muravyev who received Zatonye estate as the dowry of his wife, nee Pushkina. The round parterre was made in the front yard. The terraced slope led from the parterre to Zatulenskoye Lake. At the top of the slope two oaks were planted (they were survived). The small estate (the square was equal 12 Hectare) was very picturesque. In 1850 the estate was passed to the Full State Councillor V.P. Timofeyev who was the estate owner till the Revolution of 1917. Timofeyev enlarged the estate territory: a big service yard, stables, coach-house, dairy-farm, ice-house and others were built. In 1859 the chapel was built over the grave of the owner's wife. The Zatonye estate detailed description with photographs was placed in the magazine "The Capital and Estate" in 1915. Wooden constructions were not survived, the park, which was closely connected with lake landscape, was remained partly.
