Subject / Architecture/Country estates

Kummolova, a country estate (the Lomonosov District, nearby the village of Klimotino). In the early 18th century the grange of Kummolova was granted by Peter I to the architect (the manager of the copper manufactoring in Russia) I.L. Blyumentrost who built an agricultural estate with a distillery and ponds for breeding trout there. In 1756 Kummolova estate was inherited by his daughter M.I. von Gersdorf. The Gersdorfs were owning the estate for 125 years. From 1812 A.K. Gersdorf was the owner of Kummolova estate, under her a stone two-storied manor-house with hexastile portico at the façade and the triangular pediment was built (the architect V.I. Beretti ?). At the same time the park with pond was laid out, stone dwelling wings and service constructions were built. The estate which was in perfect condition was bought by the Chief of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Office K.K. Veimarn in 1902. After the Revilution of 1917 an agricultural commune was placed in Kummolova. On present days the estate is in a state of neglect.
