One of the outbuildings of the manor has a very interesting history. It was built in the 30s.

This house is one of the oldest stone buildings in the city of Yekaterinburg. It is known that the house of the Zotov-Tarasov estate already stood in 1804. According to various sources, in 1819-1821. The building was either rebuilt or bought by the former serf GF Zotov. In 1837, the second guild merchant S.L. Tarasov rebuilt it, giving the building a more elegant look. As a result, the house received another name - Tarasovsky.
