The mansion was built in the first half of the 19 century. It is made out of stone, has two floors, a mezzanine and combines traditions of classicism with different eclecticism motives (neo-grek, neo-rococo). With its longer side the mansion was directed to the depth of the quarter, to the river. It was strictly sectioned: a house itself, the main court, a garden and a backyard. From the north-east there is an adjacent two-storey accommodation. The center of the main façade is emphasized with four fluted pilasters which encompass both main floors. Mezzanine fronton is its accomplishment.
The house has a south entrance and it is under a cast-iron balcony which stands on shaped cantilevers. The inner layout was changed. The cast-iron stair railing and fragments of the ceiling moulding are still preserved. Nowadays the mansion hosts the Central city library named after Herzen A.I.
It is included in a complex of merchants’ mansions which were built along the former Aleksandrovsky Avenue (now Dekabristov Street) and Arkhiereyskaya Street (now Chapaeva Street), past the Czar bridge and across Iset river.
