The house was built on the territory , that belonged to barons Ikskul-Gildenbandt and was sold to Mohilevtsev in 1898.

The interior décor and design of the Mansion are very unique, having no analogues in Kiev, and, thus, are very valuable from the architectural and artistic point of view. Its décor combined various historical architectural styles , that gave names to Mansion’s main halls : Mauritanian, Renaissance, Modern, Rococo, Byzantium, French.

Ceilings and walls of the halls of the Mansion are richly decorated with painting, modeling and wooden panels. The authentic venetian style mirrors, carved doors and windowsills, frames of façade windows, casted staircases are amazing. Modern Hall still preserves old stained glass windows.
