At the end of the 19th century, the estate was home to the famous Polivanov Grammar School. Poet Valery Bryusov, who studied here, wrote in his memoirs, "Although there were many more aristocratic names on the rosters of Polivanov's school, I have never heard anyone boast of his ancestry."
Two years before the revolution of 1917, the estate ended up in the hands of the well-known patron of the arts Vera Firsanova, the owner of Serednikovo Estate. Firsanova commissioned the building's reconstruction, transformed the interiors and changed some of the elements of the facade. Unfortunately, she did not have long to enjoy her new home – right after the revolution, Vera Firsanova, who gifted the city with Sanduny bathhouse and Petrovsky Passage shopping center, was forced to move to a single room in the communal flat, which used to belong to her. The building was given to the Academy of Arts, and later it became the residence of the Children's Art School No. 1, one of the city's best, and the Children's Muradeli School of Music.
