Borozdins Manor Decays in Pskov Region

A monument of federal value - the Borozdins manor, built in the late 17th century is decaying in the Pskov Region.
      An ancient park with lime avenues and 300-year-old oaks has remained till date. The roof of the manor, however, badly needs urgent repair. Though now the monument belongs to two owners at once, nobody even guards the site of the manor.
      Proprietors have been looking for a buyer for a few years already. The assessed value of the building makes two million roubles plus the obligations related to observing the law on protection of a monument of architecture.
      The Resurrection Church financed long ago by the artillery general Kornily Borozdin, now has no owner at all. It is considered one of the best specimens of Russian church architecture of the 18th century and is now decaying for all to see.
