      I contacted Sendzikas and was told that to easily purchase this, I would have to be a member of a Schengen country which is basically an European country.

        Shenzhen & SoCal,

        Don’t believe what you were told. All you have to do is “pay” for the opportunity to own the property. I lived and worked in Ukraine for several years. I was a principal Architect on the personal residence of the former President of Ukraine, Leonid Kuchma. They are essentially the same peoples……and wonderful.

        These buildings from the Soviet-era were built to last forever……like USSR.

        This is a handsome building worth saving. But you can be guaranteed there is no one with the funds willing to spend the money to purchase or repair the building.

      Great photos! I changed the web page to an english translation and it was a very interesting read. It seems that folks all over the world are sad that their country’s historic properties are being neglected!

    We think of the Greek Revival as our ‘national style’ in the antebellum period, yet here is a manor house in far-away Lithuania that would be right at home in Natchez, Mississippi if you could just drape some Spanish moss over some of those tree limbs. Amazing, too, how much it resembles the Virginia State Capitol in Richmond. It’s too bad that the original land holdings have been whittled away to practically nothing, but at least the linden allee out to the main road survives intact and is included. I wonder if there would be a market in the Lithuanian countryside for a hotel/wedding venue/conference center along the lines of Nottoway Plantation in Louisiana?

      Lithuania is very close to Greece. In the strictest sense this is not Greek Revival — this is Greek. Not a copy of our southern mansions but the original thing.

    This is Madewood on Steroids! Those are some SERIOUS Doric columns on THAT baby! That should be in Natchez or on the Mississippi! Nottaway and BelleGrove would have been shamed by that one!

    Fabulous property & agreed appears similar to homes of this era in America. Probably originally an aristocratic family mansion. Lovely idea re: wedding venue; conference center– museum?

    Wasn’t Lithuania, Ukraine part of czarist Russia?

    The tragedy here is the suite of traditional Neo-Communist style interiors of about 1955. Someone took pleasure in pushing that destruction forward. It does give a buyer the option of creating their own fantastic interiors.

    What a beautiful building! I was a bit disappointed by the bland interior, but from what I understand it used to be a school, so Q.E.D., that makes sense…

    That is one imposing structure. The possibilities are limitless.

    Interesting that the rounded dormer windows were added sometime after 1939. Nicely done.
