It's a cultural heritage site of federal significance. The mansion with a stone arcade under the balconies is an example of Moscow classicism.
The house was laid at the beginning of the 17th century in the country yard of the Saltykov boyars. Instead of the boulevard there was a fortress wall, a large garden rested on it, cows browsed in the garden.
The second owner, Ivan Buturlin, was first a stolnik (he served the sovereign's meal), then a boyar, he was governor in battles with the Turks, carried out diplomatic missions in Europe, participated in the signing of the "Everlasting peace" with Poland (then the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth).
The first noticeable reconstruction of the house at the end of the 18th century was made by Dmitry Boltin: officer of the Leib Guard of the Izmailovsky Regiment, leader of the nobility in two provinces. Under him, Nikitsky Boulevard was established on the site of the wall. Boltin built the house up to the red line of the boulevard and overturned the front door of the estate – that is how it looks now.
The next owner was Major General of the Izmailovsky Regiment Alexander Talyzin, a participant in the Battle of Borodino. He restored the estate after the Moscow fire of 1812, decorated the facade of the house with stone arcades. He was married to a French citizen. The couple brought up six extramarital children of Talyzin (the spouses did not have common children), they were not considered heirs, so the major general subsequently transferred the house to a relative – titular counselor Talyzina. In 1847, Count Alexander Tolstoy, a major statesman, settled with her. He was in the military, diplomatic and civil service (member of the State Council for the Department of Economics), had seven orders, a gold sword "For courage".
