AHR prepares to auction off the mansion of A.M. Brakgauzen

The Auction House of the Russian Federation is preparing to auction off a building on the Leitenant Shmidt embankment. The mansion is located in the historical district of the city, in direct proximity to Blagoveshchensky Bridge.
The date of auction has not yet been scheduled.


The architectural monument, the listed object of cultural heritage, “Mansion of A.M. Brakgauzen”, is located in the historical part of the Vasileostrovsky district. It is five minutes’ walk from the Academy of Arts and the Rumyantsev Garden. The “Vasileostrovskaya” metro station is 10 minutes away.
From the windows of the two-story mansion, there are picturesque views of the Bolshaya Neva, Blagoveshchensky Bridge, St. Isaac’s Cathedral and Angliiskaya Embankment. In walking distance are the State University, the Andreevsky Cathedral, and the Kunstkamera.
Address: nab. Lietenanta Shmidta, d.3.
Area of building – 2 059.4 sq.m.
In the process of realizing the project, it is possible to increase the total area of the building to 3,000 sq.m. All works on the object are subject to agreement.
Area of land plot – 1 600 sq.m.
Starting price – 235 mln rub

Dmitry Altbregin, head of department for working with property of private owners:
One of the obvious options for restoring the building is to convert it to a mini-hotel. The fine views from the embankment and the landmarks in several minutes’ walking distance will be popular among guests to the city. Additionally, the characteristics of the object will allow the investor to use it for an office, a bank branch or private medical clinic.
At present, the object is residential, and the apartments have been resettled. In future, the buyer may renovate the mansion for premium class housing.
