There is an interesting house among the high-rise buildings at Gastello Street.
1. How can something interesting be found at a street full of “bedroom” houses near the Sokolniki metro station? Let’s see.
2. House number 5 was built at the turn of XIX and XX centuries.
3. This was a farmstead of Moscow bicycle master Ivan Rodin. Some documents say that this was only his workshop and the house belonged to M.A.Strahov.
4. It was built in 1903 and had some reconstructions, but it still beautifies the city and pleases the passers’ eyes. Just have a look!
5. I don’t know, who this house belongs to now. There are no signs or movements around the house. Even the doors have no handles. Windows are curtained.
7. The farmstead also contained a garden, a coach-house and a three-storeyed outbuilding, demolished at 1970 during the street reconstruction.
Another version says that the house belonged to Morozov merchant family (Gerasim Alexeevich and his son Ivan Gerasimovich).
