  • History

      The three-storey stone house on Tsentralnaya (nowadays Lenin) Street was constructed at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries by an unknown architect. It is known that the Larionovs' (father and son) construction crew took part in the construction of this building. The crew specialized majorly in the laying of foundations: cathedral church, St. Nikolas Church, St. Alexander Nevsky Chapel, City Police Office, Religious Boys School. Moreover, it participated in the construction of Aksakov People's House (nowadays Opera and Ballet Theater).

      Apart from that Larionov senior was a respected Ufa merchant and a city duma member. He was one of the first members of the Credit Union, one of the founders of the Volunteer Fire Association, and churchwarden of the John the Forerunner Church.

      Larionov junior, like his father, was a member of the Credit Union and accounting committee of the public bank; he was also elected into the construction committee of the city administration because of his extensive knowledge in construction. Later he helped the construction of an Oral School and was elected a member of the local Ufa public office.

      Larionov's son (Mikhail Larionov) owned two brick factories in Zolotukha and Glumilino. Elegant bricks bearing Larionov's mark can still be found in museum collections.

      On the opposite side there were two tenement buildings of Sultanova, a wife of Ufa Mufti. Both Sultanova's buildings looked similar. The right building, though, had a balcony with an elegant fencing, which the left one lacked. Architecturally they imitated classicism.

      After the revolutions the tenement building was nationalized by the Soviet power. Besides, the Larionovs constructed beautiful new buildings. They worked hard on every project. The tenement building on Tsentralnaya Street was also thoroughly designed. Stylistically Vasilyev's house can be referred to the so-called brick style. At the same time stylistically the building is not homogenous, which means that the unknown architect was a local one. Huge balconies hanging over the street and an archway into the yard mean that it was a popular tenement building.

      The interior layout is characteristic of analogous houses in Ufa of its time. According to the available data, initially the house was heated with Dutch stoves (beautifully finished with tiles). Besides, there were two Russian stoves with a cooking stove and oven.

      Nowadays the first floor is used by stores and offices, whereas the second and the third ones are residential.
